Mohammed Shami, who is making a comeback to the India side for the first three ODIs against Australia, says he has some plans for the visiting Aussies. Shami says wants his moves to work against top opposition batsmen like Steve Smith and David Warner.

"We have some plans for each of their batsmen. There's always some new plan in place. The key is about executing it on the field," Shami was quoted as saying in an NDTV report at the Eden Gardens.

India will play the second ODI against Australia at Eden Gardens and Shami is excited to play his first ODI match at his home ground. "It's a matter of pride to play an ODI at my home ground. I hope to make it count and deliver for my team," Shami added.

India last beat Sri Lanka 9-0, but Shami admits it would not be easy against the Aussies. "Australia are a strong team. It's difficult to say that (clean sweep) but we will try our best for a good show. The conditions will play a big role," he added.

India will play five ODIs against Australia followed by three Twenty20 Internationals.
