He went on to say that team India has been very successful in away games and emphasised that they will have to live up to the standards set by them. BCCI President during an interview said, "I, watching on TV, don’t expect you to just play well against Australia. I expect you to win. So for me, that is what it is. Because you have set the standards. It’s not anybody else. So you have to live up to the standards."

As one may remember, India had quite a successful tour in Australia last year.  The Men in Blue drew the T20Is  1-1. Also, Virat Kohli led Indian team became the first Asian side to win a Test series Down Under, by 2-1. In addition, they won the three-match ODI series by 2-1. The team would want to replicate the performances even this time.
