Australian all-rounder David Hussey feels Australia have learned their lesson from the Ashes defeat and are preparing to unleash a spin barrage on the opponents.


Australia on Monday will face England in a Twenty20 clash.


The tourists were badly criticised for their decision to omit a specialist slow bowler in the fifth Test as England leaned heavily on Graeme Swann in their pursuit of victory.


This problem is unlikely though to trouble stand-in skipper Michael Clarke as the Aussies used four spinners in the 50-over clash against Scotland.


"We basically treated the Scotland match as a Twenty20 game so all the spin options were quick changes," Hussey said.


"We only bowled two or three overs in a row at any stage. I think spin plays a massive part in Twenty20 cricket, so hopefully we can all do a job for Australia.


"We basically came away preparing for the Twenty20. That's why we set up the team that way, we've put a good statement on how we want to play.


"Of course England are probably a bit more talented (than Scotland), however, I still believe our dressing room is ultra-talented and I believe we have the match-winners to take on the English.


"It's a pretty good start, we've won one and hopefully we can make it two at Old Trafford. We were preparing to play our best cricket so that hopefully we can hit the ground running tomorrow."
