Team India captain Virat Kohli said Monday the best moment of winning a series in Australia on Monday. His 2-1 victory did not get any other Indian side because he started touring Australia in 1947-48, the foundation for success was laid on his South Africa tour last year, not in the first Test in Adelaide. . It was there, and after England's tour, that he and coach Ravi Shastri identified the attacking brand of cricket, which they wanted to play, in the preparation of Australia.
Coach Ravi Shastri said, "We wanted to experiment with the combination and wanted to know what suits the team and should take it from there." "So we learned a lot in South Africa, we learned a lot in England. We made mistakes, which we did not do in this series, we learned from those mistakes."
India lost the Test in South Africa 2-1 in January last year, and then lost to England 4-1.
Shastri said, "That was the most satisfying part (winning in Australia), it was a team working towards this goal in the last 12 months." That trip led India to one of the world's most scary bowling attacks, with the success of fast bowler Jaspreet Bumrah and spinner Kuldeep Yadav.
While India's batting in Australia was above one class, Kohli and Cheteshwar were anchored by Pujara, it was the continuation of the bowling which made the difference, no Australian batsmen could score a century.
