David Peever resigned as chairman on November 1

"Just play good, hard cricket," he said. "I don't think people want us to be quiet but they want us to play with respect to the game, play hard but fair, and win well and lose better.

"The old adage is you don't say much when you win and say even less when you lose. I think we have a great team, they are fine young men, and I think they will do that.

"My advice to the guys is to go out and play your natural game and try as hard as you can. That's all Australians want to see."

Australia's Test series against India starts in Adelaide on December 6.
