Team India’s victory dance after historic Test series win in Australia

Team India’s victory dance after historic Test series win in Australia

Had rain not come to Australia's rescue in the fourth Test in Sydney, India would have wrapped up the series 3-1, having forced the hosts to follow on.

I always thought it would be tough to fit into MS Dhoni's shoes and two people who have taken over the reigns competently are Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant.

"The Adelaide Test, we honestly feel that we let that Test slip".

"I have seen with experience and being in the field as to how hard it is to win here", Kohli said. One was tagging players as boys in blue (test match uniform is white) and second was her congratulatory message for winning a test match down under.

"Other captains could have different personalities, but Virat is someone who is in your face and it rubs off on all the youngsters who are watching the game in India, ' Shastri said. We can learn a lot from the way they went about it", he added. And when you're playing a four-Test series, it's important to start off well. "They are kidding themselves if they think everything will be rosy when Smith and Warner come back". Travis was our leading run-scorer and Marcus showed in most innings that he could make it at this level.

Australia have Sri Lanka as their next Test opponents before they can fully turn attention towards the World Cup in England.




The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) congratulated the team and announced a bonus of $21 400 per match for each player while the reserves will get $10 700 per match.

"All the bowlers are fully fit".

"Our bowlers at times bowled really well in this series, at times they didn't".

Asked how the batsmen, who did not manage a single century, are to handle an English attack if they were not able to deal with India's quicks on docile pitches in Melbourne and Sydney, Paine suggested that not much would be changed.

"And all the struggles that we have gone through in the past 12 months as well as the team. They didn't have their absolute best series but it's not easy at this level and that can happen". Sometimes because we're so nervous as batsmen we don't quite realise it, you just want to get away quickly but in England you're not allowed to do that, so you have to bide your time, earn the right score runs eventually.
