AcclimatiseEight members of the Australian squad reached India on Thursday to get acclimatised to the playing conditions before the four-Test series starts on February 22.
Rixon said the visitors are prepared for the famous spinning wickets but hoped that the pitches would not be “anywhere near what they faced in Sri Lanka” last month.
“I certainly don’t see green surface appearing. The reality is, it will be a good wicket. To start with it will have a little bit of pace but as the game goes on, it will definitely be advantage to the spinners,” he said.
