But Australia will be challenging because when you play outside your home [country], you need to adapt to certain conditions. It won't be easy for bowlers as there is hardly any movement these days," Bhuvneshwar said on Monday. <p></p> <p></p>"I cannot say that we will overcome them. They don't have the two batsmen [Smith and Warner], who have done well over the years. But there are other batsmen in their place and it is not that they aren't good." <p></p> <p></p>"It s their home conditions. For us, if the two (Smith and Warner) were there, it is a challenge, now they are not there, it will still be a challenge. If it would have been easy, we would have always won the series [in the past]. It won't be easy. Our preparation in the practise matches there will matter," he said. <p></p> <p></p>India will play three T20Is, four Tests and three ODIs Down Under beginning with the first T20I on November 21. <p></p> <p></p>Meanwhile, Bhuvneshwar, who has played 92 ODIs and 21 Tests, hailed the team management s rotation policy. "The way fast bowlers are managed, the rotation policy is in a way good, as we get a break and others get a chance and the body remains fresh," he said. <p></p> <p></p>"Breaks are needed after you play a long tour. You are mentally tired, like <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/jasprit-bumrah/">Jasprit</a> [Bumrah] said that when you return, you are fresh and are rearing to go. Hence, breaks are needed, as your body gets tired.
