Gautam Gambhir reveals his disappointment with the one-sided pitches in Australia.

Indian batsman Gautam Gambhir has criticised the pitches that have been prepared in Australia during the current Test series between the two nations.

Australia lead the series 3-0 heading into the final Test but Gambhir believes India should take steps to ensure that they feel the benefit when playing at home too.

"We're beginning to realize that when we go overseas, every country prepares wickets according to their own strengths," said Gambhir.

"So once these people come to India, I think that we should not be hesitant in making turners. That's when we will get to know whether they're mentally strong. The kind of chitchat they do when we go overseas and talk about our techniques, that's when they will be tested and see how good they are against spin bowling."

India will be hoping to avoid an embarassing whitewash series defeat during the next Test in Adelaide.
