India A batsman Manoj Tiwary has taunted Australia's batsmen, saying they'll be found wanting in the four-Test series starting on Friday.
The right-hander's 129 and dumped Test opener Gautam Gambhir's 112 helped lift the home side's total to 451 at Chennai's Guru Nanak College Ground.
Australia were set to resume on Monday's third day of play in the three-day tour match on 4-131 after a dramatic collapse of 4-11 late on day two.
"If they face quality spinners like Bhajji pa, Ashwin and Ojha (Harbhajan Singh, Ravi Ashwin and Pragyan Ojha) the way they have been bowling, it will be difficult for them," Tiwary told reporters.
"They didn't play our spinners as they should have. Their technique was wanting as far as facing spinners was concerned.
"They were not sure of their defence. That's why they were not stretching enough to play the spinners and not going back enough either."
Tiwary was also happy to talk down Australia's bowlers' hopes of success.
"This pitch was slow so their fast bowlers didn't get much help," the uncapped 27-year-old said.
"They tried to get reverse swing going, but that also didn't happen much.
"If they get these kinds of wickets here, it will be difficult for all their bowlers."
Shane Watson top-scored with 84 and combined with Ed Cowan (40) for a first-wicket stand of 116.
Left-handed duo Phil Hughes and Usman Khawaja fell stumped and bowled respectively to offspinner Jalaj Saxena in exactly the scenario India will hope to exploit in the Test series with Ashwin and Harbhajan bowling offbreaks to Australia's lefties.
Test No.4 Watson said he was ready to resume in the role if regular opener David Warner (fractured thumb) wasn't passed fit to play in the first Test.
"I certainly do love opening the batting," the vice-captain said.
Watson was quizzed about Tiwary's attack on Australia's batting techniques.
"Manoj Tiwary is very confident at the moment because he's got some runs out there. But he's not the first Test squad is he?," Watson grinned.
"So we won't have to worry about him which will be good.
"You learn from your mistakes. Unfortunately a few mistakes have been made.
"Whether it's our quick bowlers or our spinners, they are adapting to the new conditions. Our batsmen are getting used to the turning ball.
"Some guys haven't played in Indian conditions before, in Test matches especially, so it's a big learning curve for a lot of the guys."
