I think that the way that india play there cricket, which in the past was reasonably attacking, should be sufficent to provide a good show. As long as Laxman, who i think is the best indian batsman for australian conditions, gets good support the batting shouldnt be the main concern.
From memory last time indian played in Aus the series was drawn. Australia were with out Warne (drug ban) and i think McGrath had his ankle/heel injury. This time round it's the same but Lee is starting to shine as the new spear head but our spinner, who will probably be Hogg, is not in the same threat as our spinners were in the past.
