Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar shared his opinions on India’s commendable victory against South Africa and the tough challenges that lies ahead in the upcoming game against Australia. Tendulkar feels that Australia has a good attack but India is all set to face them.

"The Australian attack is a good attack but Indian team is geared to play that attack. We have done well in the past against that bowling attack. Guys will be ready to face them," the former cricketers told India today.

He also urged Indian cricketers that they should keep the confidence earned from the last game and concentrate on the next game. "All the confidence you have gained from this game (vs South Africa), pack that in your kit back and get to your next game. Australians are going to be a tough team to handle because of the combination and confidence they have at the moment.

The Mumbai-born former cricketer also said that Australia is now totally a different team with comeback of Steve Smith and David Warner. "They are a different side (after Smith and Warner's return). Whatever I saw of David Warner in the IPL, he looked extremely fit and above all he looked determined and motivated to go out there and get runs," Tendulkar said.

"In these conditions, it's ok to get beaten, bowlers are also there to pick wickets. They will beat your bat. But eventually what matters is what the scoreboard says," Tendulkar further added.
