With Umesh Yadav coming back into rhythm and Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammad Shami already in the thick of things, Bangar on Saturday said India would be ready for the high profile tour to be followed by the World Cup with their best attack.

Rotating players
"As you must have seen there's a lot of rotation happening. Bowlers like who have had a lot of workload like Bhuvi and Shami have been rested. The rotation policy is being followed with an intention that we have an all fit pace attack in Australia," said the former India all-rounder.

"The preparation has been spot on and the workload is monitored properly. We probably have the best seam attack going into Australia for a number of years now."

Shami, Aaron at the nets
Incidentally, Shami and injured pacer Varun Aaron, who are not part of the side, are also accompanying the side as the duo were seen going all out at the nets during their practice on the eve of the fifth and final ODI against Sri Lanka.

India would be playing four Tests beginning December 4 in a tour that would continue till the World Cup in February-March next year.
