India need to confront Australian demons: Steve Waugh

Sat, Mar 21, 2015, 04:08 PM
Sydney, March 21: Former Australian captain Steve Waugh said on Saturday that India need to confront their mental scars against his countrymen as they prepare for this week's World Cup semi-final clash here.

Australia dominated India, in both Tests and One-Day Internationals (ODIs), prior to the World Cup at home.

Waugh said while the Michael Clarke-led Australian side enjoyed a psychological advantage over the defending champions, he was impressed by India's recent form, reports the Sydney Morning Herald on Saturday.

"I think Australia will, mentally, be a lot tougher game for them. India has been consistently beaten by Australia over the last couple of months and they'll definitely remember that," he said.

"Having said that, (India) look to be in good form. They're playing very well and their batting is capable of chasing any target. They've played well (during the Cup) and they're on a good streak at the moment.

"This is a game where both teams will feel a bit apprehensive. They'll (both) feel confident but if they don't bring their A game they're not going to win," Waugh told the Sydney Morning Herald.
