BRISBANE: Australian cricket team coach Tim Nelson declaring the series against India a challenge said that India have never been easy on their home ground.
Nelson expressed hope that the series in India would be a clash of the titans.
The seven-match One-day International series between the two countries is beginning from October 25.
The Australian coach said that playing against India in their home conditions is very difficult and no less than a challenge for Australia.
Allrounder Shane Watson also said that Australia would be benefited by the absence of Zaheer Khan but Harbhajan Singh may pose problems for Australian batsmen.
