Brisbane: Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said India have the pace threat and aggression to win Tests away from home and it's just a matter of time before results go their way.

The Indians lost by four wickets to Australia in Saturday’s second Test in Brisbane after going down all guns blazing by 48 runs chasing 364 in the opening Adelaide Test. While India have been in contention in both Tests, the Australians have won the key moments to turn around the contests.
“There’s plenty of areas we’re showing improvement, but we’re still not crossing the line,” Dhoni said. “We need to give it a bit more time. Once they start crossing that line, once they harness that aggression in the right channel you’ll see plenty of good results from this side.”
Dhoni said it is important for India to compete against the Australians in what is the toughest tour for overseas teams. “The exciting thing is we have competed. What’s really important is it can turn at any point of time,” he said.
“It’s exciting to see the youngsters putting in a fight. It’s just a matter of time. It will turn out to be a very consistent side.”
