Australia captain Michael Clarke admitted that India’s veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh would be the toughest to face.

“He is going to be very hard to face,” said Clarke. “I’ve always had a very good relationship with Harbhajan. I have faced challenges on the field as he is a very good bowler. He has played Test matches against the best players and I am sure that this Test is not going to be different.”

Meanwhile, Clarke has decided to go with a lone spinner in Nathan Lyon and believes that one needs “courage” to stick to their plans irrespective of whether you are bowling spin or facing it.

“Playing spin bowlers is no different to playing fast bowling. You need to have the courage to stick to that plan whether you make zero or 100,” said the Australian skipper.
