Team India is all set to face the stiff challenge on the Australian Soil and India's vice-captain Rohit Sharma on Monday revealed that the team played a few close matches in Australia last time around. He also wants to make it count on the current tour.

The Indian batsman also said it feels good to perform in Australia as it gives a player a lot of confidence.

Speaking to media Rohit Sharma said, "The last time we came here there were a few close games. We want to make it count this time around. There is real good feeling in the group across all three formats. The motive of the team is to try and seize all the moments and try and win."

"When you do well in places like Australia you feel good as a team. Thinking about the World Cup ahead it can only give you confidence winning in places like Australia," he added.

The Men in Blue are set to play three-match Twenty20 International series. The first match will kick off on November 21.

Further India's vice-captain said, "I've had my good times in Australia playing white-ball 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."

Rohit also said that the conditions mat support the Australian bowlers but the Indian batters are all set to face any challenge thrown at them

"Australia specially have tall bowlers who extract bounce and use it to their advantage. Indian batsmen generally are not that tall. It`s not that easy for us," the Mumbai batsman said.

"But all the guys are determined to change things around this time. It will be a challenge but we are ready to accept the challenge," he added.

Rohit had proved himself in the limited overs format in Australia but the challenge is to perform with the white ball.

Speaking on this, Rohit said, "I have done well in limited overs, but the challenge obviously is red ball cricket, which right now I am not thinking of, just want to do well in the T20 format and take it from there."
