The triumph in 2004 was Australia's only series win in India since 1969," he wrote.<br /> <br /> Jones also elaborated on the tactics that the Australians will have to follow in the gruelling series.<br /> <br /> "India's formula has been to have an opening bowling pair, then two specialist spinners and a part-timer to do some work when required.<br /> <br /> "Last year, England replicated the 'Indian theory', and was rewarded with a 2-1 series win. I feel Australia should do the same," he said.<br /> <br /> "For the first Test at Chennai, I would have a batting line-up of <a href="/tags/David-Warner/post" target="_blank">David Warner</a>, <a href="/tags/Shane-Watson/post" target="_blank">Shane Watson</a>, Ed Cowan, Phillip Hughes, Michael Clarke, with Matthew Wade at No.6," he added.<br /> <br /> Jones said spinning all-rounder <a href="/tags/Glenn-Maxwell/post" target="_blank">Glenn Maxwell</a>, who was the only million-dollar buy at the recent IPL players' auction, should be tested during the series.<br /> <br /> "The selectors could pick another batsman, but I would go with Glenn Maxwell at No.7, and go in with the combination of two quicks and two specialist spinners. I realise that India hasn't really seen Maxwell with bat or ball, so I am willing to risk him," he said.<br /> <br /> Jones said the Australians will have to not just play well but also keep it stable in the mind to emerge triumphant.<br /> <br /> "Playing Test cricket in India is very demanding on the body. With the heat, the turning pitches and our poor record, this series will come down to having a great team environment and everyone enjoying their work," he said.<br /> <br /> Jones said if Australia lose the series it will be difficult for them to claim the Ashes against England.<br /> <br /> "If we get smashed in India, winning back the Ashes will be a bigger task. But playing in India can bring out the best and worst of cricketers and the team," he said.<br /> <br /> "I can really see this tour developing the team into a powerful unit. They have the talent, but must stick to our motto in the past: 'If you lose patience ...you will lose the battle!" he added.
