“These games are twofold, certainly winning is a habit and you want to get in it and stay in it but I also think just trying to iron out things,” Perry said.

“[Against England] we had some good stuff in the field and we had some rusty stuff and [against India] was a lot more polished performance.

“I’m really excited about the next couple of games because when you come together initially there is always a bit of a teething period.

“This is the perfect opportunity to work on things, you don’t want to peak too early either.

“It’s great to have this series and to that point I’m really confident we’ll be going well and humming [at the World Cup]”

Australian batter Meg Lanning missed the match against India due to a back complaint but Perry said they had the depth to cover their skipper.

“We bat pretty deep. We’ve got a lot of depth and anyone on their day is capable of winning us the game,” Perry said.

“Meg has a sore back. It’s something she’s managed the last couple of years so in the context of the series it was precautionary she sat out, she’ll be fine.”
