India's pace bowling attack is now considered one of the best in the world. In fact, they helped India win their maiden Test series (the Border-Gavaskar Trophy) in Australia in their last tour.

"We've had spinners – [Anil] Kumble, Harbhajan [Singh], but today no country would like to say 'give them bouncy wickets'," the 61-year-old added.

India's touring party has pacers Bumrah, Shami, Umesh Yadav, Navdeep Saini and Mohammed Siraj for Test series, with Ishant Sharma likely to join later after proving his match fitness.

They will be backed by spinners Kuldeep Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin.
