India's biggest overseas achievement, 71 years in Australia and a test win after failure, near empty stand, in front of the fine call for the Sydney Test, winning 2-1, winning a lot for pomp There was less space. There is no room for that golden moment footage. But, years, even down the road for centuries, it will be in black and white: Virat Kohli led his band of enforcers where there was no Indian captain in the past. The trip ended in Sydney, but it started in South Africa and continued into England. The manner in which the team was good for them on the field was bad and it was a great achievement for them who set them back. Frequent selection was done blender, usually due to a pitch-neutral reading or support of a hunch which was best. When they slipped, there were enough people to point out these errors, both constructively and with glee, but Kohli kept a lot in a bubble, for all feedback or criticism, the immune, invisible membrane confiscated only praise Allows to do
When there were errors in decision making in the selection of the shot or in the strategy on the field, they were brought to the attention of the captain, coach and beyond, but once the reaction was wide in the form of Pujara. It was like this team knew better than everyone else, and they had all the answers.
The only problem was that they were not winning. In South Africa, India lost both in Cape Town and Centurion, and Ajinkya Rahane was left out to mention only one curiosity, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar was dropped after being both the best bowler and most stable batsman in the first Test. . In England, the team insisted that the results did not reflect how close the series was, and in some different situations they could win the series. Except, the scoreline was 4-1, which talks like this that the sound is a touch hollow.
In Australia, however, history has been created, learned from mistakes, results were signed and distributed. Although it does not change what happened in the past, it has definitely given the team the right to tell the world: we had told you this, now you see, we were right.
"The journey started in South Africa, it was not only the preparation of this tour, but there were many things to win in Australia which were going to be the hardest. We knew that we only worked on improving the mistakes, we did not work on feeling good about those things which we did well, as a team we focused on things which we did not do well and sometimes They never seem to be very good, but if you want to win as a team then you need to accept a lot of things.
They said, "So we put those things on the table and no one did anything and nobody accepted that yes we have made many mistakes in some areas, and the time of the game and the position of the game were better than the opposition In those areas, it is the progress of a team, it is very basic but one thing that we are always stuck to working for good intentions and the right reasons. We always help the team Sector did things and why we have been rewarded with a win this series. "
Ravi Shastri, the coach, who is missing from the background score of one of India's major victories – he has been behind Mike of commentators for most of India's golden moments in recent times – supporting his captain.
"It's 12 months old, this tour has not started in Australia. The tour started in South Africa 12 months ago, where we said that there is a certain brand of cricket that we are going to play, we will experiment with combination, know what the team feels best and it is there "Shastri said," Shastri said.
"We learned a lot in South Africa and we learned a lot in England. We made mistakes that we did not do in this series, we learned from those mistakes and drove it out of the house properly. So its most satisfying part was a team that was working in the last 12 months. "
After a year's hard work in 2018, India started the 2019 on a strong, happy note. They live in constant effort and earn their right to celebrate, relax, reflect upon the achievement of their heritage and then make the most for the rest of the year offer.
