While addressing the media ahead of India's tour to Australia, captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said Team India is all set to take Australia by storm.

Dhoni on Monday held the press conference in Chennai along with coach Duncan Fletcher before leaving the country.

We have played consistent cricket this year, so I am looking forward to India-Aussies series, said Dhoni. "I am not worried about opposition. We are focused on the team's performance."

"Hopefully we will keep controversies out of this series," he added.

On the current position of the Team, Dhoni said Sehwag plays an important role in the team as he can put pressure on opponents. When asked about Yuvraj Singh, he said, "Yuvraj is like Rajinikanth for Team India and we wish both of them keep going."

On the comeback of Zaheer Khan, Coach Duncan Fletcher said warm-up games are important for him.

The first test match between India and Australia will be held on December 26, 2011. The series will consist of four Tests and two Twenty20 matches.
