Australia skipper Michael Clarke also has reportedly asked a win against India as a Christmas gift from Santa.
I am confident that we got the best eleven to help us win this first Test in these conditions. I can use Hussey, Ponting and myself to bowl a few overs. David Warner can bowl leg-spinners too. We've got the right XI to give ourselves a chance to win this Test," insisted Clarke.
About relationship between two teams "We all understand there's a fine line you can go to but can't cross. I guarantee nobody in the Australian team will cross that. If they do, there'll be punishments from the ICC but also from Cricket Australia," clarified Clarke.
The 30-year-old skipper expressed confidence if Australia could play consistently for five days they would win the first Test.
Stating that he would want to bat first if he wins the toss, Clarke said, "My favourite thing to do when we win the toss is always bat. But you can't make that decision unless you see the conditions on the day of the toss.
"My goals are no different to any (other) series I've played. I want to go out there, lead from the front and make sure I'm performing with the bat. But, most importantly, I want Australian cricket to continue to head in the right direction. I want us to play some good cricket," he said.
