Melbourne: Pakistan allrounder Abdul Razzaq says Australia doesn't have any world-class bowlers and will struggle to beat India in next week's first Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Razzaq, who is in Australia playing for Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash Twenty20 competition, says India deserves to be favoured because star bowlers like Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath have retired and Brett Lee is no longer playing Test cricket.

He said an attack led by James Pattinson and Peter Siddle would have difficulty against the No 2-ranked Test side, saying "India are aiming to be the world champions, and they will give a tough time to Australia."
