Australian paceman Mitchell Johnson feels India would be under pressure ahead of the third Test despite leading 1-0, as the hosts would want to seal the four-Test series by wrapping up the issue in New Delhi.

The left-arm quick hoped the visitors would claw their way back in the series.

"I think we can put a lot of pressure on the Indians. I think they're going to be feeling it a little being 1-0 up. I Think all the pressure's on them so most of the guys are confident. When you're losing there's disappointment but we'll get back on track," Johnson said.

Australians have been going through tormenting times after the battering they received in the last Test in Mohali, yet Johnson drew some positives.

"I don't think we're too far away to be honest. There's a few good things, like Shane Watson batted very well and bowled well. Peter Siddle was outstanding on debut, you've got plenty of guys who've done well," Johnson told AAP.

However, the left-arm pacer admitted that it required a 'big' effort from the entire team to level the series in the third Test in New Delhi to begin on October 29.

"The next is for everyone to get out there and put a big effort in," Johnson said.

Meanwhile, the arrival of Shaun Marsh, the replacement for opener Phil Jaques, has been delayed as he is yet to get his visa and is cooling his heels in Perth.
