Australia captain Ricky Ponting insists his side have what it takes to win the upcoming Test series against India.
The Aussies are currently in Hyderabad preparing for their warm-up clash with an Indian board XI ahead of the four-Test series opener in Bangalore on October 9.
Australia arrive back in the sub-continent without several key players following the recent retirements of Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath and Adam Gilchrist, to name a few.
However, Ponting, whose side remain the No.1 ranked Test team, is adamant his current crop of players are good enough to replicate the 2-1 series victory Australia recorded in Asia in 2004.
"Even though some of our big players have retired, we've managed to prove that we can still beat anybody," said Ponting.
"We're confident that the younger players can deliver."
Only four players in the current Australian team have played Tests in India, while several others have toured the country for limited-overs internationals and featured in India's domestic Twenty20 league earlier this year.
"They might be inexperienced to Indian conditions, but they're not inexperienced," said Ponting.
"They've played in various countries and they've played a lot of first-class cricket in Australia.
"You have a lot of exuberance and enthusiasm when you have younger guys in the team.
"We go into every game confident to play at a certain level, and we're good enough to beat anybody we play against."
Ponting believes the recent week-long training camp in Jaipur helped his team get acclimatized to Indian conditions, especially the pitches.
The week-long camp included a two-day game against the Rajasthan Cricket Academy XI in which Australia's batsmen had difficulty against young spinners.
"We did struggle against spin, but we're are confident for first test," Ponting said.
