NEW DELHI: Despite going through a transitional phase of late, Australia will be a tough nut to crack in their own den, feels India’s middle-order maestro Rahul Dravid ahead of the team’s tour Down Under.

“I don’t think so,” Dravid said when asked if it would be comparatively easy for India to win a series for the first time in Australia.

“There will two evenly-matched teams. They have definitely lost some of the big names, some of the great players, but we have seen there performance against New Zealand and South Africa,” he added.

Dravid, who has so far scored five centuries this year, felt India can be competitive.

“If we play well, we can be competitive,” he said. The Indian also believed that the absence of new pace sensation, James Pattison, who has already been ruled out for a major part of the upcoming series, would not impact the Aussies much. (PTI)
