Australian pace spearhead Brett Lee on Monday warned it may get worse for Indian batsmen in the remaining matches of the series with pitches being more helpful for fast bowlers.
After struggling on a subcontinental-type slow and low wicket in Melbourne, the visitors might find the Sydney track more difficult to bat on, Lee said.
"Sydney is going to have a bit more (life) in it, especially for the quicks," Lee told 'Herald Sun'. "And then we have got Perth...Who knows what might happen over there.
"We were bowling on a pretty benign wicket in Melbourne, very low and slow and that doesn't really suit the quicks. But I thought we did a great job on that wicket. The ball ended up looking like a dog had a good go at it. Up here (in Sydney) should suit fast bowling a lot more."
Lee said after the disciplined performance in the first Test, which the hosts won by a whopping margin of 337 runs, they needed to stick to their plans to maintain their stranglehold in the second match.
"We have to stay really focused and keep going through and executing the plans we have been focusing on," he said.
