need to pick the right team if they want to bounce back from the defeat.
"They had the opportunity to give India a bit of scare. Peter Siddle and Mitchell Starc didn't bowl particularly well. But they did pose some questions to India. They posted 380 in the first innings on a turning track. But to get a bigger impact they need to get their selection right. If the track keeps turning like it did in Chennai, they have to pick a second spinner," he said.
"(James) Pattinson was excellent. They have pace but they didn't get the bowl to reverse swing enough. (Mitchell) Johnson had a lot of success in India. May be they may think of bringing in Johnson and also have (Xavier) Doherty. They are not far off. But they need to have their star players performing. Once they get start, they need to go on."
Dravid feels the immediate solution for Australia would be to get someone to stop the run flow from one end, something which Monty Panesar did during England's successful tour of India last year.
Dravid said India need to win the four-match series to get their confidence back before flying to South Africa.
"I agree, it will be different conditions when we tour South Africa, New Zealand and England next, but we need to build the confidence first. I know a lot of questions will be asked, if India lose and people will get dropped, which doesn't help. From India's point of view, they need to win first," he said.
