Australia are blooding new pacers Joel Paris and Scot Boland against India and the legendary opener believes that MS Dhoni and his men should cash in on that opportunity.
"The two Mitchells, Johnson and Starc who have been such an integral part of the team are not there which makes Australia's new-ball attack inexperienced. If the Indian team can get off to a good start, they will not be easy to beat. The first two matches will be important as you need a good start," Gavaskar said.
Gavaskar also feels that the Australian batting line-up has also undergone change with Michael Clarke's retirement and Shane Watson not being picked.
"This is not the same side that won the World Cup. There is no Michael Clarke, there is no Watson. But once Aussies get a sniff, they are a difficult team to beat," he said. The legendary opener, however, seemed hopeful that left-arm seamer Barinder Sran will get a look in.
