"I haven't bowled with a new ball in Tests before. But it doesn't mean I will never do it. I will do anything which the team wants me to do," Tendulkar was quoted as saying in the The Khaleej Times.

Tendulkar has picked 35 wickets from 73 Tests, his best being 3-10 and in one-day internationals he has claimed as many as 128 scalps, with 5-32 being his best figures.

The star batsman also appealed to fans back home to be patient with the team as all the members were trying their best.

"Just be with us. We are trying our best. If we play to our potential, we can win at least a Test from this series."

Australia have already clinched the four-match Test series, their first series triumph on India soil, after a gap of 35 years.
