Australia 7 for 604 dec and 5 for 167 dec beat India 272 and 201 (Sehwag 62, Lyon 4-63, Harris 3-41) by 298 runs.

"The bowlers in this series have been absolutely outstanding and it certainly gives the batsmen a lot of confidence," said Hussey who averaged 58.6 in the test series.

Paceman Peter Siddle, who claimed 5-49 in India's first innings of 272 on a flat batting track and had figures of 6-96 for the game, was named man of the match.

Siddle said patience was the key to his haul of 23 wickets at 18.65 in the series.

Captain Michael Clarke, who scored 626 runs at 125.2 in the series including a triple hundred and a double ton, won the player of the series award.

Ex-skipper Ricky Ponting, who averaged 108.8 in the series, said he was just glad to make a contribution.

"We're heading in the right direction," said Ponting, 37

"The disappointment of last summer has inspired a few of us. There's been a bit of fire in the belly and we've known we've had to get better," Clarke said of Australia's 2010/11 Ashes defeat.
