Anil Kumble got India-Australia series result prediction absolutely spot on

May JohnsonJan 09, 2019

"We also played to win but this team is at a different level in terms of fitness and the captain has shown the way".

"It is a young bunch of guys and to have that belief to keep striving for excellence on a daily basis and to get a reward like this we definitely have to be happy". But it was not the case in Australia as India won the Adelaide Test and MCG Test by outplaying Australia in all the departments.

Australia had won the second Test in Perth by 146 runs.

Australia were without their two key batsmen - Steve Smith and David Warner - but had their frontline bowlers at their disposal throughout the four Tests.

The triumph ended a 71-year wait for India. "We honestly feel that we let that Test slip", Paine said on Monday (January 7).

Wet weather has helped Australia to escape with a draw at a sodden SCG, where India have made history by completing a 2-1 series victory.

The group, including German and Dutch tourists, were trying to pick up Styrofoam before it washed back out to sea. German authorities said that most of the containers located so far were in Dutch waters.

"I think the obvious one was the Adelaide Test".

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.

'That's the determination and the ruthlessness, the mindset with which this team went out to play in this series.

The win was India's first outside of Asia or the spin-friendly Caribbean since 2009, and will have meant a great deal to the cricket-mad nation given Australia's status as one of their arch-rivals. Putting runs on the board again is the most important thing to win Test matches.

With the bat, the tourists managed to score five centuries over the four matches with Player-of-the-Series Pujara recording three of them, aggregating 521 runs from seven innings at an average of 74.42. "Best wishes for the various games ahead", he added. Australia are unable to play long innings. Our bowlers at times bowled really well, at times they did not. "We know they have the ability to do so, we had some many starts in this series, it's learning how to convert those and getting through tough periods".

Marcus Harris top-scored for the hosts with 79, Australia's highest individual score in the series.
