New Delhi:With the most awaited series of the year all set to begin, both teams appear to have geared for a nail-biting contest in the four-match Test series in next thrity  
five days. 
 
Australia will be eyeing to re-do the last year’s performance on their home turf where they routed the visiting Indian side with a 4-0 white wash. With a comparatively  weak spin attack, Australians will be relying on their pace attack to tear into Indian batting line-up.
 
On the other hand, the hosts will be eyeing a revenge for their last year's humiliation. 
 
India will have an upper hand in the spin bowling with R Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha and Harbhajan Singh. 
 
In the absence of VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid and Gautam Gambhir rested, youngsters like Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay will have to shoulder the burden of India's depleting batting power.

    MS Dhoni: With his superb 99 runs knock in the last Test against England saved the game for India. MSD has been the best behind the wickets and his body language has been full of confidence. He can be a game changer for India with his bat and behind the wickets performance.

    Sachin Tendulkar: He will be seen in action for the first time in any international match after retiring from ODIs last year. With few good performances in the domestic cricket under his cap recently, the 'God of cricket' will be one of the players to watch out for in the series.

    Virender Sehwag: With Gautam Gambhir already being benched for the series, the writing on the wall is very clear for the 34-year old right handed batsman from Delhi. Under criticism for his poor form in last few series', Sehwag is going to come hard.

    Ishant Sharma: Appeared off-clour in the Test series against England but came back strongly in the ODI series. Ishant Sharma scalped five wickets against Pakistan and created trouble for England in the ODI series. He can be dangerous for the visiting team if he maintains the same rhythm.

    Cheteshwar Pujara: He has been in terrific form in the India-England series. The 25-year old right handed batsman from Saurashtra scored 438 runs with an average of above 87. He can fulfill the vacuum created after VVS Laxman and Dravid.

    Shane Watson:  After having scored good runs in the practice match against India A, the all-rounder will be a main threat for the Indian attack. Fully aware of the Indian pitches after playing in IPL, Watson can make Indian bowlers run for money.

    David Warner: The 26-year-old right handed explosive batsman was one of the reasons behind India's humiliating 0-4 wash out last year. On his best day he can be a nightmare of the opposition bowlers. 
     
    Warner remained out of playing XI due to thumb injury but he is likely to open for Australia in the opening Test in Chennai.
