Melbourne: The tail-enders' gritty show was among the many positives that Australia skipper Michael Clarke listed after his team's crushing 122-run victory over India in the first Test here on Thursday.
"The most pleasing aspect was to see the tail wag and get critical runs in both the innings. To see our bowlers execute our plans so well.
"To see Huss (Hussey) under pressure walk out and play the way he did. The way Punter (Ponting) played in both the innings. Ed (Cowan) on debut, his first innings was crucial. There's so many positives to come out of this game," said Clarke after the match.
