Imran Khan congratulates India on maiden Test series win in Australia

09 January 2019

Dhawan has played 15 matches against Australia scoring 626 runs at an average of 44.71, making 2 hundreds and 4 half centuries in the process. However, Ravi Shastri, who was very excited to answer it, took over the mic from Virat Kohli and revealed his inner voice. We didn't work on feeling good about the things that we did well.

Tim Paine's side were unable to paper over the cracks left by their absence, and even the vaunted pace attack of Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins failed to fire, except for spells in the victory in Perth.

A lot of people are saying that India won only because Australia's squad was weak, with Steve Smith and David Warner missing in it.

Fresh from their 2-1 series defeat of Australia this summer, India will return to defend the Border Gavaskar trophy in just two summers time as part of a reworked ICC Future Tours Program.

Indian captain Virat Kohli was full of praise for Pujara, who scored 521 runs at 74.42 this series, to edge Jasprit Bumrah (21 wickets at 17) in the race to be man of the series. "The series win will give us a different identity".

"That's how you win Test matches".

With Australia having not won a Test series in England for 18 years, their batsmen arguably know the difficulties of facing the Dukes all too well. We have got some positives there.

Australia finished this series without a single hundred in four Tests. They are dictating terms now which is the most unbelievable thing you can ask for from your bowlers'. They did not have their absolute best series but it's not easy at this level and that can happen. The captain was particularly impressed with the way the inexperienced players like Marcus Harris and Travis Head, at the Test level, strung in a few performances.

"Firstly I want to say, I've never been more proud of a team than this one".

"To promote that we have to play the kind of cricket we have played here".

Australia will resume on 0-6, still needing another 317 just to make India bat again.
