The series, India's first since February-March contest in New Zealand, is set to start on December 3 but there is still some confusion over the venues since different Australian states have different lockdown protocols.

"We've been able to play some great Test cricket in the last 12-18 months. We're ranked number one at the moment and there's reasons for that," Langer told AAP from Adelaide on Monday.

"In our mind, it's pretty clear at the moment what that first Test squad would be, but it's exciting to see if anyone else is going to put their hand up.
