'Aussies eying to level the series'

Australian left handed batsman Mike Hussey said that the Aussies are eying to win the second test against counterpart India and level the Border-Gavaskar Test series. The second and final Test of the series is scheduled to begin from Saturday at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.

The South paw, Mike Hussey expressed that it might be the last five dayer before the Ashes series, but the entire team's focus is just on winning the upcoming match and draw level in the series.

"Every Test match is big. Yes, it is the last Test before the Ashes but we are not thinking about it this stage. We are 0-1 down in the series and we have to win this match and level the series," Hussey told reporters on Thursday.

A disappointed Hussy said that they lost a match that they could have won comprehensively.

"It was a Test match which we could have won. We had our chances, but we could not do the job and get over the line."

He also expressed that there were some positives that could be derived out of the match.

"From a positive point of view, we did a lot of things right. We are playing against the number one team in the world with a relatively young team. We will try to maintain that consistency here," he said.

When questioned about why is India considered to be such a tough opponent to play in their home soil, Hussey expressed,"They know how to handle pressure
and how to handle every situation. They have done it many many times before.

"Their bowlers, Harbhajan (Singh) and Zaheer Khan have played a lot of Test cricket and have a got lot of experience. They know the conditions well and how to use it to their benefit," he added.
