Set to make his Test debut in his "favourite" country India in the first of the four-match series beginning here on Friday, Australian all-rounder Moises Henriques today said that his bowling and batting techniques suited the conditions in the sub-continent and he would look to make the most of the them.
"When I was a young bowler I used to be a tearaway. Having suffered a lot of injuries I had to adapt and change things to suit my body. I am now trying my best to remain consistently on my lengths and get some movement and to reverse swing. I think that obviously does very well here," said Henriques who has had his stints in the IPL.
"I have plans in batting also. I wanted to put the pressure on back a bit on Indian spinners (in practice games). I thought that was the right thing to do at that stage. Unfortunately I missed out on the pretty good opportunity there," he said at a press conference here.
Henriques has the experience of playing in India in the ODIs and as Delhi Daredevils player in the IPL but he said the Test format will be a totally different ball game.
"I am aware of conditions here and I have got some plans in place to go out there and try them. But the wickets for T20 cricket are completely different and there is not much spin in the shorter format. I think the conditions for Test match here will be completely different," he said.
"My role in the side is pretty good as for me it has not changed from that I have been playing in home season. To go out there I have a big role to play with the bat and with the ball. I say that I am a genuine all rounder and to go out and do as much as I can with the bat and the ball," said Henriques.
