Australia all-rounder David Hussey, who played a big part in his team’s facile 31-run victory over India in Sydney on Wednesday night, is looking for a perfect game to make it 2-0 in the second Twenty20 international at the MCG in Melbourne on Friday.

“It’s pretty important to make it 2-0. We played good cricket and got a few cobwebs out of the way. We want to keep the momentum going forward and play a perfect game in front of 90,000 (fans) at the MCG,” said Hussey.

“There’s no better feeling than to do it at MCG, the home of Australian cricket in front of 90,000 people. There's no better atmosphere throughout the world.”

Meanwhile India will be desperate to register first win on the tour. The young legs did show some energy on the field but at the batting crease, they were no different to their Test seniors. Bowlers, too, couldn’t leave much of an impression.

All said and done, skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni will need to do something special to inspire his team on Friday.
