Visiting skipper Michael Clarke today vowed to make a strong comeback in the remaining two Tests, despite abject surrender in the first two games.
Trailing by 0-2, Clarke warned India of a possible turnaround in the last two matches in Mohali (Mar 14-18) and Delhi (Mar 22-26).
"It is not in our nature to give up without a fight. We have every chance of making a comeback and levelling the series 2-2. We feel if we win one we can win two," an optimistic Clarke said about his team's chances.
"We have to win the next two Tests to level the series and that is our main focus. But obviously it is going to be tough as India are playing really good cricket at the moment."
After losing the opening Test in Chennai by eight wickets, the visitors slumped to another morale-crushing defeat when India humiliated them by an innings and 35 runs in the second Test in Hyderabad.
And the Australian skipper was modest in admitting that India were by far the better side on display in the opening two Tests.
"No excuses for the defeats. We were outplayed in all facets of the game -- batting, bowling and fielding. The credit must go to India. But we need to improve as team," Clarke said during a function announcing Spartan Sports Goods' association with capital's Hyatt Regency hotel.
"We have learnt from our mistakes in the first two games, and I feel we still have plenty of time to correct our flaws before the next game," he insisted.
Clarke admitted that the touring Australia squad lacks experience when it comes to playing in tough Indian conditions.
"Only four players of the current team has experience of playing Test matches in India," he said.
"The conditions are tough and demading in India. The culture, food, pitches, weather everyhting is different, but I guess that is the beauty of cricket.
