With the second test match against India just days away, the Australian team are looking to make amends for their dismal batting performance in Nagpur.

The tourists were defeated by an innings and 132 runs in the first test, producing a stunning batting collapse to lose ten wickets in a single session.

Prior to their departure for Delhi an optional session was held with all of the squad's batters present, per reports from, eager to improve when the side heads north.

Speaking to media after the session, Alex Carey, who made ten runs in the second innings collapse, said the Australian's needed to stick to their methods.

"You can fall into over-playing conditions and certain names. What you see before you go out to bat as well can change your method a bit," Carey said.

"For myself today (at training) I went back to batting more than anything else and reacting to what's being bowled down at me and trusting that method.

"Maybe (I was) a little bit too keen to play a different style, but in my first Test over here that's not a bad learning to have.

"Hopefully I can find that balance – along with all our players as well. We obviously want to be proactive, but calm and patient (as well), and we had a pretty good look at that first-hand with a few of their players.

"At times it might be (required to bat) in fast-forward mode but Jadeja and Axar showed as well, you can be pretty patient."

When asked about Cameron Green, who is still in doubt to bowl after breaking his finger during the Australian summer, Carey said he was looking "pretty good".

The allrounder reportedly trained separately to the main group, but was bowling.

"He's looking pretty good," said Carey.

"I'm not 100 per cent sure (how is progressing) – he's a fantastic allrounder for the country. It will be nice to see him back soon. How much do you push it, we'll leave that to the selectors, but he's looking pretty good."

The second test between Australia and India gets underway on Friday, February 17 in Delhi.
