Australia captain Michael Clarke said that he is pleased with the performance of his side in their second Test match at the Sydney Cricket Ground,  where they won by an innings and 68 runs against India on Friday.

 

“We need to assess conditions. Four fast bowlers for Perth are possible. I hope the wicket is similar to last summer with pace and bounce and some sideways movement. If that's the case that's an option (to go with four fast bowlers) there,” Clarke said at the post-match press conference.

 

“It's not been a cakewalk. We have played hard fought Test cricket. It's against a number two team with a lot of great players. We are really happy with the first two (Tests). There's a long way to go. The series is still not won. We really want to win in Perth.”

 

“We are able to build pressure, we are bowling a lot of dots and maidens and that's what is taking wickets. Against good players, no very good players, you have to build up pressure as an attack,” stated Clarke.
