Touring England have struggled for victories during recent visits to the subcontinent.
Looking back to one of his first appearances in India, Broad has revealed that he received a hostile reception when he claimed the wicket of legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar.
"I'd just bowled him through the gate in front of a crowd of 50,000," he told the London Evening Standard. "If I'd done that in England, I would have got a polite round of applause and a few 'Well done, sirs', instead I got booed and abused.
"I was 22 and had just dismissed the best batsman in the world and I was getting harassed for my achievement. So when you're playing in India, you really need to work on your mental strength."
The four-match series between the two nations gets underway in Ahmedabad on Thursday, November 15.
