Steve Waugh says the pressure will be on India in Friday's third test and that his top-ranked Australia side is relishing the challenge of trailing 1-0 at home in a four-test series.

"For all of us this is our biggest test for a long while, which is great," Waugh told a news conference.

"I know the guys are looking forward to it. We've said often in the last couple of years we need a challenge to get us going to play our best cricket and we won't get a better challenge than right now."

India's shock four-wicket win in last week's second test in Adelaide placed Australia in danger of their losing their first series at home in more than a decade, and it was India's first test victory in Australia for 22 years.

"I think there will be more pressure on India now. They are in front, they probably didn't expect to be," Waugh said.

And there is none on Australia. Waugh was probably expecting Australia to trail at this stage.
