India will be looking forward to continuing their winning ways against Australia at home when they take on the visitors in a one-off polo Test match at the Jaipur Polo ground (JPG) on Sunday, though a senior member of the visiting team, Dick Doolin, has other ideas.

"Out cricket team might be losing to India, but we would like to go back home a victorious lot," said the four-goaler, who was a member of the team, which lost to India in a one-off match at Mumbai in 2008.

Doolin will be relying on his past experience in India, though things are stacked heavily against his boys, as they would be playing for the first time at the JPG, and on 'unfamiliar' horses. It's usually the host association, which provides the horses because of the logistics and the cost involved in transport.
