Indian opener Murali Vijay has sent a threatening message to the Aussies, vowing to ensure India will win the upcoming Test series 4-0.

Vijay, who has recovered from injury to return to India's Test squad, believes Australia won't stand much of a chance against the Indians, who are currently ranked number one in the world in the Test arena.

"Aussies are a top side, but we have been playing a great brand of cricket for the past three years," he told Indian media.

"I think we will be dominating the Aussies. 

"Our approach would be winning the series four-nil."

Vijay himself has an imposing record against Australia, scoring 1162 runs at an average of 61.15.

It includes 482 runs at 60.25 in India's last Test tour of Australia.

He's looking forward to the challenge again - including that of Australian spearhead Mitchell Starc.

"I’m up for the challenge," he said.

"I have a strong belief in my ability and I’m sure it will hold me in good stead. I’m also working on a few aspects to enhance my game."

But Vijay has said he's more concerned about what he and his teammates are doing, rather than the Australians.

"It looks like Australia have a new strategy for India tour as they have packed their squad with spinners.

"What we have to do is to focus on our preparation."
