It's against that backdrop that India arrive in Brisbane for a T20 worldwide at the Gabba on Wednesday night, although they won't have to play any red-ball cricket there with the first Test in Adelaide, before the series moves to Perth, Melbourne and Sydney. The Indian opener said the pace and bounce of Australian pitches helps his game.

During India's pre-departure presser ahead of the Australia tour, Virat Kohli labelled the growing perception of the head coach being a yes man to the captain as weird.

"India have always played either at Perth or Brisbane", Rohit said. The team would love to replicate the results from their previous T20I assignment on their tour down under when they clean swept hosts for a 3-0 series win.

"I remember my first tour was in 2007 and I had a good time", he recalled.

"Yes, it is challenging for all our batsmen when we come around here [but] most of the guys have come to Australia before".

"[Rohit] is an unbelievable player, he's got a good record all round the world, so he's definitely a player to watch but we've also had success with the new ball as well", Coulter-Nile said at a press-conference in Brisbane. "The motive is to seize all the moments and win".

It will be a testing couple of months ahead for the Indian team at the same time they will be in with a chance to force themselves into history books for something which has never happened before in Indian cricket. "The bounce when sometimes you play in places like Brisbane and Perth, the good bounce allows me to play my game because I've grown up playing on cement pitches back home, so I always enjoy coming here". In the ODI leg too, even though India lost, Rohit scored 441 runs in five games with two hundreds and one half-century at a stunning average of over 110.

"It was a close game, but again, we want to make it count this time around".

"I have done well in limited overs here but the challenge obviously is red-ball cricket which right now I am not thinking of, just want to do well in T20 format and take it forward where we go".

"The first time I came here, I remember, in 2007, had a good time". However, the flamboyant batter isn't exactly looking so far ahead now. I will do the same on Wednesday. In Indian cricket, I don't think there is anyone else who has said no to me more than him (Shastri) honestly.

The Twenty20 Internationals will be followed by a four-Test series beginning in Adelaide on 6 December.
