Australian captain Tim Penn acknowledged that his side was canceled by the incoming Indian team as the Kangaroos lost the four-match Test series 2-1. Pine recognized the current Indian bowling line-up as the key point of difference between the two teams and acknowledged that it was the best attack in the world.
"This (Indian) attack was gravely good, I do not think we have given enough credit to them in Australia that they are very tired. Three fast bowlers bowled at a good pace, they are relentless under pressure.
He said, 'Therefore, for the test players experienced hard work against their attack. Marcus (Harris) and Travis (Head) have shown the game to make runs against the best attack in the world, a real positive, "PTI quoted him as saying.
However, Pine also told that the Adelaide Test could go in favor of him, but it was India who had won important moments in the series after that.
"Adelaide Test, we honestly feel that we finish that test. We thought that during that test we had many opportunities and to move forward when India pushed us ahead in those momentous moments, we should be honest. Now, looking back, if we had won in that Test in Melbourne, in Perth, then a washout (in Sydney), it could have been another way of 2-1, "he said.
"It's funny, in a big series of four Tests, you go back to the test in some important moments, where we disappointed ourselves, or India left us behind, and you reached the end of the series And it is really difficult to take wickets.
Expressing frustration over the loss of the series, the Australian captain also said that the team felt the absence of some players (Steve Smith and David Warner).
He said, "When we came into the series, we honestly felt that we can beat India in Australia. But in the whole series, not much time, when they came in a big moment, Virat has scored, Pujara has scored, Bumrah has done great bowling and we can not get through those moments. How do you win a Test match? That's why India won this series, "said Pine.
"His best players stood in big moments or when they were lagging behind in one game, one of their best players pulled him back in the competition, or when he was in front of the game, he would have us out of the game. In Sydney and Melbourne, we can learn a lot from the way they went about it.
Australia did not make a single century in four test matches Pine said that senior batsmen like Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh did not feel their presence, even if they stopped blaming them for the failure of the team.
"I do not think it was just those two, I think everybody in our top seven does not play as good as we would like." Travis was our main scorer and Marcus showed in most innings that he was at this level We have got some positiveity there.
"The rest of us have not scored enough runs, so it is probably hard to say on Khwaja and Marsh. We know both of those players that they are a complete square, we know they can make many runs. We believe they will move forward.
Australia's next Test opponent is Sri Lanka, after which they can fully draw attention to the World Cup in England.
