The demoralising ODI series defeat is a thing of past and the Indian team will challenge the Australians in the Twenty20 series with some fearless cricket, batsman Suresh Raina said after joining the side Down Under.
The short three-match Twenty20 series between the two sides will begin on Tuesday and Raina said it will be important for them to start the series well.
“We intend to play fearless cricket. The ODI series is the past now and this is a fresh beginning. We have to look to be dominating and be positive in our approach. We will do well. Australia have a young side and they would know that the win in the last game has given us good momentum going into the T20Is. They will come hard at us but we are ready too,” Raina said after a practice session here.
Raina joined the side along with Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Ashish Nehra and the young Hardik Pandya.
The diminutive left-hander emphasised on the need for improved running between the wickets and fielding well at the big Australian grounds.
