We want to leave a mark in this country, says Rohit Sharma

India vs Australia,Michael Hussey,Hardik Pandya

While a regular in India's limited-overs format, Rohit Sharma is yet to quite cement his place in India's Test squad.

Two Twenty20 global centuries in 2018 and four overall - more than anyone else in the world - have made Sharma an indisputable heavyweight in the format. The team would love to replicate the results from their previous T20I assignment on their tour down under when they clean swept hosts for a 3-0 series win. "It will be a challenge but we are ready to accept the challenge". "It was a shortened game - 10 overs a side - so you can not make too much out of it", Sharma said, not reading too much into Australia's defeat. The visitors have never won a Test series in Australia, drawing three and losing eight of their 11 outings.

During India's pre-departure presser ahead of the Australia tour, Virat Kohli labelled the growing perception of the head coach being a yes man to the captain as freakish.

"Last time when we were here, especially talking about the T20s, we did pretty well here".

"Australia in Australia will always be unsafe without a doubt. But as a bowling unit, we are prepared to face that challenge". If I may say so, then Brisbane is probably the fastest pitch in Australia. "Different individuals will take places in different formats but the motive of the team is to try and cease all the moments". It's not going to be easy, but we have quality in our group. So I've done well in limited-overs, but the challenge obviously is red-ball cricket, which right now I am not thinking of.

Stressing on the significance of putting up a good performance in Australia ahead of the 2019 World Cup, Rohit said: "When you do well in Australia, you feel good as a team and thinking about the World Cup ahead, it can only give you confidence winning in places like Australia".

"But we've also had a bit of success against him with the new ball as well - I think "Dorff" (Jason Behrendorff) got him out last time we played him - rapped him on the pads - so we'll look to do that again early".

"The first time I came here, I remember, in 2007, had a good time". I will try to do well in T20 and take it from there."However, he accepted that the bounce in pitches like Brisbane and Perth suits his style of natural stroke making".

"The last time we came here, there were a few close games".
