Adelaide: India might be left with a mountain of runs to climb in the first Test but fielding coach R Sridhar was confident that the batsmen will make up for the bowlers' poor show.
India's hapless bowling attack allowed Australia to pile up a mammoth 517-7 and take control of the first Test after a rain-truncated second day.
"The skipper gave a very positive talk at the end of the day's play. We are here as a cricket unit to play good cricket, both in batting and bowling departments.
We back each other all the times. The batsmen are very confident that they will make up for the bowlers," Sridhar said.
