NEW DELHI (Agencies) - It has been declared India's best ever chance to upstage Australia in their backyard but former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram feels the task is easier said than done and Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men would struggle to avoid conceding a decisive early lead to the hosts.

"Any team will struggle in Australia, especially in the first two Tests.

It takes a lot of time for visiting teams to get into the groove of playing under those conditions. Be it New Zealand, Pakistan or India, you are bound to find it hard to play there.

"I toured Australia 10 times and we found it very tough for the first two games. So, India will also struggle and better be careful, they do not want to be 2-0 down straight away," Akram said.
