'India no longer unbeatable at home'

Bangalore, Feb 5: It is less than 20 days to go for the start of India-Australia Test series and opener David Warner is confident of winning the series as he feels "India are no longer unbeatable at home".

The way England beat India in the recent Test series has given Warner and his team the belief and they want to emulate the Englishmen in the four-match series which starts in Chennai on February 22. Warner, who has played 15 Tests, is yet to play one in India.

In an interview to "The Times of India" newspaper on Tuesday (February 5), Warner praised the England team and their captain Alastair Cook for the way they played in India. And he feels confident that they "have the skills" to play well on turning tracks.

"England played brilliant cricket right through the Test series (in India). I must single out (Alastair) Cook for special praise. He has struggled against quality spin in the past but proved that with hard work and determination you can surely conquer the odds in India," Warner said.

He continued: "He (Cook) played the ball late and was the architect of England's victory. We are looking to emulate what the English did and feel confident that India are no longer unbeatable at home. We have played very well on turners in Australia in recent times and it it is time now to do the same on turners in India. I am confident we have the skills to do so in this team."

The left-hander who has injured his finger and is out of cricket at present, said he will be ready for the first Test.

"I'm reasonably certain I'll be ready for the Chennai Test," he said.
