An Indian team brimming with confidence will aim to finally shed the poor travellers tag when it takes on a circumspect Australia in what is being perceived as the tourists best opportunity to win a Test series Down Under in 70 years.

While the narrative remained same during the earlier tours of South Africa (1-2) and England (0-4), Virat Kohli and his men will like to walk the talk as India s tough cycle of away assignment ends with this four-Test series beginning at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday.

The series is even more important for Kohli as it would also define his legacy as a leader having already established himself as world s premier batsman.

India s past Test record in Australia is quite abysmal. In 44 Tests on Australian soil, they have only managed five wins thus far.
