India have been dominating the once unassailable Australian squad as they have learnt to do better than their opponents in crunch situations and the hosts' batting order led by Sachin Tendulkar is the best in the world, according to speedster Shaun Tait.

"I think India over the past few years have done well in the past few series. They are three up on Australia. Their bowling order is still mixed up, but their batting is solid, its the best in the world," he told reporters in Mumbai on Tuesday.

"There are a few injuries (in the Aussie ranks) at the moment. Australia are sorting their side out. The team is keeping an eye over the Ashes. But full marks to India. They have done well in the crunch situations.

"There was a time when Australia used to be good mentally in the crunch time. Now India have developed that quality," he added.
