"It was nice to get to the milestone of a Test hundred but it was disappointing not to be able to help Australia over the line," Warner said from Hobart, hoping that the century and the show of character would secure him a place in the side against India.

"The Boxing Day Test match is always special and, more so, against India. Hopefully we can play well."

Warner recalled that there was much intensity during India's last tour of Australia and does not expect the coming series to be very different.

"That some of us have played in the Indian Premier League (IPL) over the last four years will surely help the players understand one another better but I don't think that this familiarity will take the edge away when we are on the field," he said.
