Australia vice-captain Shane Watson on Thursday praised young all-rounder Moises Henriques for his impressive show in the opening Test against India at Chennai.

Meanwhile, Watson, who is featuring in the team only as a batsman these days, said their side is determined to do well after suffering a heavy defeat in the series-opener in Chennai.

"We need to win this Test match. We need to be certainly at our absolute best to beat India. They played very well in the first Test. Ashwin bowled beautifully in those conditions and MS Dhoni batted unbelievably well to take the game away from our reach. So we have to be certainly at our absolute best," Watson said after team's practice session here.

"We need to play our aggressive brand of cricket where we are best as a team. We need to find a way to make sure that we play that brand of cricket. We will be making sure as a team go out there and make sure that we are really up for the contest," he was quoted as saying by PTI.
