Seamer Stuart Clark believes Australia can head to India on confident mood following their success over Bangladesh.

Despite the heat and humidity troubling the Aussies during the three-match one-day series, they have moved into a 2-0 lead against Bangladesh.

And following Saturday final game, Australia will head to India for a four-Test tour - with the series arranged after the postponement of the Champions Trophy.

Clark believes that having conquered the conditions in Bangladesh will help them in the sub-continent.

He said: "It's been tough. I won't lie and say it's been easy, it's been tough because of the humidity.

"It's part of playing cricket, it's what the conditions are like in many places around the world where we play, so it' something we really need to get used to."

Although neither Clark nor leading paceman Brett Lee have played Test cricket in India, the team feel that inexperience will not be a hindrance.

Clark said: "We'll look at some sort of footage and draw on experiences of the guys who did play here in 2004.

"We're going a little bit early now, and make our own adjustments to conditions that aren't like Australia."
