India take on Australia in the second of the four-match series at the Perth Hockey Stadium on Wednesday.

The Kookaburras beat the visitors 4-0 in the first game on Tuesday, with Jeremy Hayward, Jacob Whetton, Jeremy Edwards and Jeremy Edwards all finding the back of the net for the hosts.

This was Australia's second straight 4-0 win over India, after the Kookaburras had beaten the men in blue in the 2014 Commonwealth Games hockey final in Glasgow back in August.

Australia's new coach Graham Reid, who succeeded Ric Charlesworth in September, stated he was happy with the start to his reign.

"We don't care about the score, it's about how we're playing and tonight we were reasonably happy with how we played," Reid pointed out.

"There are lots of things we've got to work on; our circle efficiency is one of the major things we're trying to work on and there's a lot of work there still to do. We still made a lot of opportunities and didn't finish off so that was a little disappointing but some good efforts."

India, of course, went into the match high on confidence, after beating Pakistan on penalties to clinch gold in the 2014 Asian Games hockey final a month ago. However, facing Australia proved to be a different ball game altogether, and the visitors were humbled by the world no.1.

India will be keen to improve their performances in the rest of the series and gain some top-level experience, ahead of the Champions Trophy which is set to begin next month in Bhubaneswar.
