"It's about man-management which Ravi bhai has done brilliantly in the time he's been with us".
The likes of Shami, Ishant and Bumrah were impressive on recent tours of South Africa and England, while Umesh became only the third Indian paceman after Kapil Dev and Javagal Srinath to claim 10 wickets in a home Test when he helped the hosts to a 10-wicket victory against West Indies in the second Test. After losses in South Africa and England, the coach says it's been a learning curve and "if we can learn from the mistakes we made, it will hold us in good stead (in Australia)". That's something we are looking forward to as a whole batting unit, from top to bottom, to bat well together. Because at the time when we really went through a bad time in England 2014, for me to be able to come out of the shell and for a lot of other players. There are lot of things that we sat down and figured out what went wrong in England.
"I am still pretty confident that we can win in Australia but it's going to be a close series though", Waugh said about the Test series starting December 6.

Wayne Rooney: End of Manchester United career was 'embarrassing'
Southgate said: "It would have been ideal for Wayne to score but we saw moments of real quality from him". This team just isn't good enough to compete with elite squads.
If 350 runs are scored per innings, the Australian team can be a tough side for Virat Kohli-led team. "That's a very personal thing for them". Things that conveniently need to be put out there are put out. However, I think Australia's bowling attack is world class and will challenge the Indian team, particularly the younger players in Australian conditions. "The grace period is over now", the Indian coach said in a press conference ahead of the team's departure for the two-month long series against Australia that features three T20Is, four Tests and three ODIs.
"We need to get more consistent as a team".
"About [Shastri] saying "yes" all the time [to me], that's the most freakish thing I've heard".
"Honestly, he is one guy I can speak to and get an honest opinion and he'll tell me something that doesn't need to be done", Kohli further said. "I don't think there is anyone who has said no to me more than him (Ravi Shastri) in Indian cricket", Kohli said.
