His side staring at defeat on a crumbling Chepauk pitch, Australian all-rounder Moises Henriques does not find any problem about India offering turning tracks and said his team-mates should "enjoy" the challenge of playing on such conditions.
"It's terrific as cricketers we get to go to different nations and play in different conditions. Otherwise, it is a bit different notions. It's so different to wickets we get in Australia. It's so enjoyable, even if it hits your glove it's still enjoyable. It's just good fun," Henriques told reporters at the press conference after fourth day's play here.
"It's very frustrating when you get out. Very frustrating but you have to enjoy. That is the difference. I think it's a terrific day that cricket being such a world game that has so many different tough conditions," said Henriques, who was holding fort on 75 with Nathan Lyon for the last wicket.
Australia ended the day on 232 for nine in their second innings, just 40 runs ahead of India overall with just one wicket in hand.
Asked further about the wicket, Henriques, who had played in the IPL for Delhi Daredevils, said it was difficult to bat on and some of his team-mates got out at superb deliveries which they could not do much to fend off.
"I think the bounce was uneven and I had a couple of balls hit my gloves in the early part of innings and I was lucky enough that those balls went straight to ground. Sometime luck went my way today. It is tough wicket to start on especially against spin," he said.
"Indian team has quality spinners and it looked easier most times when it spin out there but it became difficult when they hit the rough there and the balls were jumping. So, the ball that Phil Hughes got and Shane Watson got I think they popped up and they really could not do much. I think if you get out to ball like that then you know you cannot really do anything about it."
