New Zealand beat India to Clinch World Test Championship mace

New Zealand enjoyed the greatest triumph in their cricket history as they beat India by eight wickets in the inaugural World Test Championship final at Southampton.After 144 years of Test Cricket New Zealand emerges as First World Test Champions.Kyle Jamieson elected as Man of the Final.

Two years on from their agonising Super Over loss to England in the 50-over World Cup final at Lord’s, New Zealand’s men claimed their first major global title. Set a victory target of just 139 in 53 overs, New Zealand finished on 140-2 with more than seven overs left after the match was extended into the reserve sixth day after two days’ play were completely washed out.

Indian team resumes last day from 64 for 2 with Virat and Pujara on the pitch but they couldn’t stretch the indian inning Courtesy Kyle Jamieson’s Brilliant Bowling.Rishabh Pant was the highest Scorer from India in the second inning with an 88 ball 41 runs.Then Trent Boult Came into the attack and dismissed Pant and Ashwin.Southee stops the cameo of Mkhammed Shami and ends the Indian inning.Indian team could only added 106 runs in their overnight score.

New Zealand Openers starts well as they play very cautiously against first few overs of Pacers but then Ravi Ashwin turns the table with two quick Wickets of both Openers.Two new Batsmen and New Zealand team’s Best two batsamem were on the crease.

Both Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor played with calm and composed to stretch the kisi inning.Willimaom score 52* while Ross Taylor(47*) finished the match with a four to clinch the World Test Championship.

Indian Pacers performance was so disappointed in the second inning especially.Ishant was looking tired whereas Bumrah were finding his line lenth and leaking the runs.Shami was superb in first inning but couldn’t done it again.

Apart from their Bowling Indian team batting was the main reason behind this defeat.In first inning on one point India were 149/3 and sums up to only 217.In the second inning they showed same with their bat.

New Zealand team came to this match very prepared and their sheer calm approach led them to be the first ever World Test Champions.Credit goes to Kivi’s Bowlers who restrict Indian batsmen to lower score and Kane Williamson who lead this team from past two years of WTC.

This Final marked the culmination of a two year Cycle of series to find the first official World Test Chamipons.

Playing – 11 Selection is going to be difficult for Team India in WTC Final

Cricketing world is going to get cheerful moments as Indian team is going to play the World Test Championship Final on 18th June up against New Zealand but Skipper Kohli and Coach Shastri would be tensed about the first Playing Eleven.

There should be two spinners or one? If there will be there fast bowlers then whom will rested? Who will open with Rohit?Vihari or Jadeja for number seven?

I think Spinners selectiom would going to be tougher for Skipper Kohli.Indian team declared their first 15 for the WTC Final and Both Ashwin and Jadeja secure their Place where Axar Patel who took 27 wickets in 3 matches against England being ignored.This decision has to be taken as Jadeja has better Batsmen skills then Axar Patel.In case of two spinners Both Ashwin and Jadeja will directly play the WTC Final.

Now if Only One Spinner is going to select as English Condition demands then whom? Ashwin has emance experience then Jadeja on English condition.If We look into fielding perspective then Ashwin far behind then Jadeja but still Ashwin has great chance to be in the first eleven.

Selecting Fast Bowlers would be more tough job rather than Spinners.Team India chooses five fast bowlers in their first fifteen.Jaspreet Bumrah will surely play the championship decider as he had consistency and Good record on english pitches.Shami is one of the brilliant fast bowlers in world right now and if he gets the rythym and he will be nightmare for the Kivis.Siraj is in good form especially after Australia series.He has extra pace that will be difficult for kivis player but I think Team management will go with experience of Ishant Sharma as he play only one format of the game and WTC Final would be big occasion for him.

Indiam team already ignore Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul for Opening slot so Shubham Gill is going to open with Rohit Sharma.With Pujara at 3 and Virat,Rahane in middle order,Indian team is settled.

My Playing Eleven :

Shubman,Rohit,Pujara,Virat,Rahane, Pant,Jadeja,Ashwin,Shami,Ishant, Bumrah |

What is your Playing Eleven? Tell me in the comment section …Till then Keep Playing,Watching and Enjoying Cricket..

Administration needs to wake up before Indian Women’s Cricket loses it’s flair

Recently Indian Women Cricket team lost ODI and T20 home series up against South Africa but major concern is something else.Indian Women team played this series first time after the T20 World Cup 2020.

Why there was no match after 2020 world cup for women’s team?

No one has answer for this question as No one interested in happening of Women’s Cricket in India.

One should not get shocked by Indian team defeat in ODI and T20 because Proteas team was better with their skills and performance.Their players played Big Bash league and Home series against Pakistan before the Indian tour.Wheras Indian players played only 3 matches of Women T20 challange in UAE.

From 2017 to 2020 Indian women team performance was in accelerated mode.Team played 2 Finals of ICC events.One in 2017 World cup against England and other in 2020 T20 World cup against Australia.

In 2005 All Cricket Boards permit the dissolution of International Women Cricket Council into International Cricket Council(ICC).India was late in this for almost one year.That time no one interested and happy for Women’s Cricket.

Cricketers were compel to leave their employment because sides like Air India were given jobs and included in fiasco, according to Women Cricket association of India.

After that team India out from top four nation.In 2013 World cup at home soil Team did not performed well and got out from league stage.

In 2017 after addition of Diana Edulji in COA committe of BCCI,Women’s Cricket starts to change.That time is gone when there was separate department for Women’s Cricket in BCCI.

Indian Women Cricket needs Director of women’s Cricket that can take all decision related to Indian Cricket.This is not a work of BCCI head or Secretary.There should be a proper set up for this process.

Let’s hope that this defeat by South Africa will open the eyes of BCCI Officials and administration to change the scenario of Women Cricket otherwise Indian Women Cricket will be done and dusted.

IPL 2021 : Team Preview Part 2

Few hours is left for the start of season 14 of the Indian Premier League.This season will start with the match between Mumabi and Banglore on Chennai Pitch.

Last time we analysis the four teams and their possible first 11 and here we are back with four more teams to analysis it.

Royal Challengers Bangalore : –

Team that have a huge fan base and support not only in Banglore but all over the world wanted to replicate this season with 2016.As Virat Kohli said he will be open the inning in their season,hopefully RCB cross the line this time.

Team Bought some expensive players like Maxwell,Kyle Jamieson,Dan Christian alongside with Some Indian Talent Azharudeen and Sachin Baby.

With Maxwell in middle order alongside with AB deviliers RCB had very good chance to make it in the playoffs but problem is not with their batting in past few years.It comes with the death Bowling.

Siraj and saini will definitely play in the first eleven but could they deliver in the death bowling with tall Kiwi bowler Jamieson or with Kane Richardson.

If RCB tackle their death bowling department then they will definitely make into the playoffs.

My First Playing 11 :

Virat Kohli,Padikkal,Azharudeen/ Sachin Baby/Rajat Patidar/Shahbaj Ahmed,AB Deviliers, Maxwell,Dan Christian,Washington Sundar,Kyle Jamieson,Saini,Siraj,Yuzi Chahal.

Kolkata Knight Riders : –

2012 and 2014 winner under Gautam Gambhir but after then KKR didn’t show their class in IPL.Last Year Dinesh Karthik leave captaincy in middle season due to personal reasons and then Eoin Morgan lead the side but couldn’t make it to the playoffs.

In Auction KKR buy Shakib Al hasan and I think he could be the game changer for KKR in this season.With Shakib at Number 3 KKR have more depth in batting and bowling as well.

Only Problem for KKR team will be the fitness of Andre Russell.If Russell deliver with his bat and bowl them no one can stop this team to be in top four.

My First Playing 11 :

Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Shakib Al Hasan, Eoin Morgan,Dinesh Karthik,Andre Russell,Rinku Singh/ Karun Nair,Pat Cummins,Prasidh Krishna,Varun Chakravarthy,Mavi/Nagarkoti/Warrier.

If KKR is playing on slow pitches then One spinner(Kuldeep/harbhajan)will added for Mavi/Nagarkoti/Warrier.

Rajasthan Royals : –

Winner of the inaugural season of IPL,Rajasthan Royals will start their IPL 2021 journey uo against Punjab Kings with New Captain Sanju Samson.After 2008 victory RR never reached into Final of this league.

Last Year Rajasthan starts very well but their performance goes down as league reached to its final stage.Team Finished at Last position.

RR release Steve Smith and make Sanju a new captain of this young team.Most Valuable player of last season Jofra Archer will miss few matches of IPL 2021 and this will cost RR very much.He was the leading wicketaker(20) for Rajasthan Royals.

Rajasthan’s team main problem was their batting order.They never satisfied with their batting order and tried too many options in a span of few matches.Who will replace Jofra in bowling unit alongside with Chris Morris is if Mustafizur,Andrew Tye or any Indian pacer? Hopefully Team Director Kumar Sangakara have answer to all these qurstions.

My First Playing 11 : –

Jos Buttler,Ben Stokes,Sanju Samson,Mahipal Lomror,Riyan Parag,Shivam Dube,Chris Morris,Rahul Tewatiya,Mayank Markande,Andrew Tye,Kartik Tyagi

When RR plays on Slow pitches of Delhi then Andrew Tye should replace by Mustafizur Rehman.

Chennai Super Kings : –

2020 IPL season was the only season when MS Dhoni side CSK didn’t make it to the playoffs.Team won 6 matches out of 14 and secure 7th position on points table.

CSK is called as Daddy’s army.Team’s average age is 30 years.Team Brings Uthappa,Moeen Ali and K Gowtham in the team while Raina joins the CSK den after missing 2020 IPL.

CSK is all about MS Dhoni.If MS Dhoni performs then CSk will perform well.Last Year MS Dhoni made only 200 runs in 14 games at an strike rate of 116.

Team has one major problem that is major players of CSK is inactive in competitive cricket.This cost them last season and might cost this too.

My First Playing 11 : –

Robin Uthappa,Du Plesis,Suresh Raina,Ambati Rayudu,MS Dhoni,Ravindra Jadeja,Sam Curran/Moeen Ali,Shardul Thakur,Lungi Ngidi/ Dwayne Bravo,Imran Tahir,Deepak Chahar.

What you think about these four teams,tell me in the comment section.

Till then keep playing,Watching and enjoying Cricket.

IPL 2021 : Team Preview Part 1

Just After five months the Biggest Cricket league in the world yes I am talking about IPL is back to entertain us with some prolific cricket.This Season would be more special as it is going to happen in India unlike last year in UAE due to Covid-19 Pandemic.

This year No team would play on their home ground that makes this IPL a little bit equal for all the teams and would be more competitive.

All teams are in good balance after the mini auction.lets see which team is good on the paper.

Mumbai Indians : –

Team that is on the cusp of history.Team that win 2019 and 2020 IPL and is going to bang the third won.Can Mumbai Indians made the third in a row what Australia did in World Cups.

Mumbai releases Mechlengaen, Pattinson and Nathan Coulter nile before the Auction and bought Adam Milne for the fast and bouncy Wankhede pitch but Mumbai is going to play their 9 matches on slow pitches of Chennai and Delhi.

5 time winner team perform in duo of Surya-Ishan in middle over,Hardik-Pollard in death and Bumrah-Boult to hold bowling attack.

Only problem for the Mumbai Indians is that lack of quality spin bowling attack.Mumbai brings Piyush Chawla in the squad who might not played first few games and with Krunal and Rahul Chahar you cannot make big impact on Chennai and Delhi Pitches.

My First Playing 11 :

Rohit,De Cock,Surya kumar Yadav,Ishan Kishan,Hardik Pandya,Kieron Pollard,Krunal Pandya,Rahul Chahar,Trent Boult,Jasprit Bumrah,Adam Milne

If De Cock is not available for first few games then Chris Lynn would be the best option on top order.

Punjab Kings :

Team that starts every season with a bang but couldn’t cross the line for playoffs.This time with new name Punjab Kings wanted to be in first four.

Punjab kings qualify only twice for the playoffs first in 2008 and then in 2014.Team releases Maxwell,Cottrell,K Gowtham,Neesham and Fabien allen.

Team bought some class player in auction like Dawid Malan,Moises Henriques,Shahrukh Khan,Jhy Richardson and Riley Merrdith that makes team much balance then last year.

Last year KL Rahul was splendid with the bat but his conservative approach in first few over let him team down and when he score more his team was on losing side.Hopefully KL Rahul brings his Class back in this IPL Season.

Main Problem for the Punjab Kings is that None of 6 top Batsmen can bowl or None of 5 bowlers can bat a bit.They lack a death over batsmen who can bowl few overs.

My First Playing 11 :

KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal,Dawid Malan,Nicholas Pooran,Shahrukh Khan,Mandeep Singh,Chris Jordan,Jhy Richardson,Murugan Ashwin,Ravi Bishnoi,Mohammad Shami

Moises Henriques can fill that all rounder spot on number six but it will cost Punjab team to lose Chris Jordan or Richardson.

Sunrisers Hyderabad : –

5 Playoffs in last five years of IPL,This team is constant like the city Hyderabad is.In Last few years we have seen that SRH didn’t make too many changes to their core strength and that is the biggest plus for the team.

Team Bought only three player Kedar Jadhav,Mujeeb and Suchith in the IPL auction while get Jason Roy in place of injured Mitchell Marsh.I think Kedar Jadhav was the smart buy for the SRH team as Kedar can chip in last few overs with his smart cricket.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar is back after his injury and he was damn good against England in start as well as in death overs.If Bhuvi does well then SRH does well.Their Bowling unit is still the best with Rashid,Sandeep and Natarajan along side with Bhuvi.

Finishing the match or lack of lofted shots in death overs is a headache for Dawid Warner side.

My First playing 11 :

Dawid Warner,Saha,Manish Pandey,Kane Williamson,Kedar Jadhav,Abdul Samad,Jason Holder/M. Nabi,Rashid Khan,Sandeep Sharma,Bhuvaneshwar Kumar,T.Natarajan

Delhi Capitals : –

Finish the number 3 in IPL 2019 and number 2 in 2020,Delhi is making strong case for 2021 as well.With New Captain Rishabh Pant in place of Shreays Iyer could Delhi lift their first title.

Delhi might not miss the captain Shreyas Iyer but would definitely miss the Indian batsmen Shreyas Iyer who made 519 runs in last season.

Delhi have two ways to approach their 2021 IPL campaign.Either go with Steve Smith at number to sacrifice Shimron Hetmyer and find a Indian batsmen on number 6 or go with the same as Rahane Plays on three.

Last Year Delhi Capitals struggle with the 3rd seamer as Ishant Sharma was not available but Delhi bought Umesh Yadav,Tom Curran and Lukman Meriwala for this purpose.

Prithvi Shaw is in the red hot form while Dhawan delivers it in IPL before with 618 runs at an Strike rate of 140+ will definitely open the inning for Capitals.

South African Players might not have been in the first few games that can weakens the Delhi side as Rabada and Nortje will not be there to deliver it.

My First Playing 11 :

Shikhar Dhawan,Prithvi Shaw,Ajinkya Rahane,Rishabh Pant,Shimron Hetmyer,Marcus Stoinis,Ravi Ashwin,Amit Mishra,Kagiso Rabada,Anrich Nortje,Ishant Sharma

If Proteas player were not there then Chris Woakes and Umesh Yadav would be the fast bowlers under Ishant Sharma.

What’s your thought on these four teams and which team cam qualify for the playoffs?

India vs England : India win series 3-1 ,Qualify for WTC Final

Team India beat England by an inning and 25 runs in the Fourth and Final test match of this series courtesy Ravi Ashwin and Axar patel five wickets in the second inning.With this win India qualify for the world test championship final up against New Zealand at Lords from 18th june.

Rishabh Pant(101) and Washington Sundar(96*) set up this huge win for India after the host had bowled the visitors out for 205 in their first innings.Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel picked up five wickets hauls in the second inning that help India to bundle England out for 135.

India resumes the day three game with Washington and Axar on the crease and both played very efficiently up against English bowlers.Both put 106 runs partnership for the 8th wickets before Axar Patel got run out and even Indian team got summed up in five balls that cost Washington(96*) to missed his century by 4 runs.

Playing on his 4th test Washington shows great composure and maturity in his 96 runs knock.He smashed 10 fours and a six in his inning but eventually missed bis hundred by 4 runs.

No one thought that England will finish on just 135 runs in last inning courtesy Indian spin twin Ashwin and Axar patel.English batsmen didn’t have answer to the both spinners.They did not apply their skills on a batting pitch as Rishabh and Washington did.

Only Dan Lawrence shows some fight from English side before Ashwin bowled him to get his 30th five-fer in his career.Rishabh pant elected as Man of the match while Ravichandran Ashwin got his 8th Man of the series award.

Ashwin picks 32 wickets in this series similar like Harbhajan did in 2001 series against Australia.Also he scored 189 runs that include class century on chennai pitch.

Axar Patel ohh.. what this debutant did in this series is an example of in what extant indian domestic cricket is strenthen.With an injury before match night,he missed the first test match but after then he overshadows Ashwin in this series.He pick 27 wickets in his debut series including 4 fivr-fer and 11 wickets with Pink ball.

Do not forget the Rohit Sharma who was brilliant in this series when no other Indian batsmen was upto the mark.That 161 runs inning by Rohit on that Chennai Pitch grabs the match in Indian hand.People were used to say early that Rohit is Flat track bully but what he did in this series should shut that voice.

With this series win Indian team win 10 consecutive series win at home since 2015 under Virat Kohli and equals the Ricky ponting.

Now India qualified for the World Test Championship Final that is going to be held in Lords up against New Zealand.Indian team wants to win this WTC Final as many players of this indian team plays this format only.

What do you think about Indian team performance in this series,Tell me in the comment section..

India crushed England by 317 runs and level the series

India crushed England by 317 runs in the second Test to level the 4-match series 1-1 in Chennai on Tuesday courtesy Ravichandran Ashwin‘s Splendid performance with the bat and the ball.

While Chasing an improbable target of 482 on a vicious turner, England surrendered to the Indian spinners in the second session on Day 4, being all out for 164 in their second innings.

England were 3 down overnight and lost their last 7 wickets in 35.2 overs on Day 4.Ashwin Strikes early as Lawrence opens his leg for ball to be in the gloves of Pant for a stump.Then Ben stokes vs Ravi Ashwin thriller contest were entertain us and one again Ashwin got his man.

England team were struggling as Olie Pope and Ben Foakes departed quickly on one end while Root holds the other one but just after tea break Root was axed by Axar Patel.After this There was some IPL audition given by Moeen Ali as he smashed 43 in just 18 balls untill kuldeep hunt him down.

With this emphatic win, India also moved up to the second spot with 69.7 percentage points in the World Test Championship table, to bolster their chances of making it to the final in June. England, on the other hand, fell to fourth position. New Zealand have already qualified for the Lord’s final to be played from June 18.

In front of his home audience Ashwin surpasses Gary Sobers and Jacques Kallis as an best all rounder in a Test Cricket and behind Ian Botham in terms of exemplary performance with the bat and the ball in same match.Now Ashwin has three occasion when he scored a ton and taken five wickets in same match,Botham did it five times.

Ashwin(106) scored his fifth Test hundred in second inning and shut all voices that criticize the chennai pitch to bat on.After this Ashwin took three important wickets in last inning of the match and with this scintillating performance he emerges as the Man of the Match.

Do not forget Rohit Sharma‘s magnificent 161 runs in first inning when all other batsmen were struggling to bat on the mine like pitch.This inning change the context of the match.One more hero of this match would be Debutant Axar Patel who took 7 wickets in this match including a Five-fer in the last inning.Skipper Virat Kohli utilized him very well and Axar applied himself very gently on this pitch in a Debut match.

With the series level to 1-1 India and England will meet once again in New Stadium of Ahemdabad in a Pink ball Test match followed by a fourth and last Test of the series.

Future of Test Cricket

First Season of ICC world Test Championship is on the end phase and it shown that it will be it’s first and last season because no one shown any interest in this championship.

ICC’s New head Greg Barklay even oppose tha World Test Championship.Reason behind this is clear that is downwards performance of the team in the real form of test cricket.

Few people assume that the New Zealand cricket is going down but first Mcculum and now Kane Williamson rise the cricket level of their country but other Test playing nation like Pakistan and West Indies bad performance is curse to the test cricket.

Pakistan’s new Captain Babar Azam done great in Test Cricket but team has no world class Fast Bowlers and Spinner like they had earlier.While West indies team is constantly going downwards with their test cricket performance,Team that their fast bowlers was nightmare to any team in the world.

Both teams player prefer franchise cricket for money over the Test Cricket.This is the main reason behind their downfall in Test Cricket.

Other reason would be lack of First Class cricket and tournament that lead the small nation like Sri Lanka and Bangladesh towards limited over cricket.

There is only 4 team remaining that took Test Cricket seriously.Big Three England, India,Australia alongside with New Zealand.So with just four teams Test Cricket Championship is not going to entertain us any more.

Few days earlier we saw one of the great series in history of test cricket between Australia and India where bullied and bruised Indian team rattled Australia courtesy team character and performance.This series might change the context of Test Cricket in future but what other teams are doing for test cricket,Nothing.

In 2021 England and India has to play 11-11 Test matches while other nation is going to play only 4-5.What International Cricket Council is doing ? Why not any cricket boards come forward?

There is so many conversation over non cricketing issues but not on Test Cricket.ICC is busy in their politics.If this is continued then Test Cricket is going to End..

What you think about Test Cricket future and what improvements should have been done to the Real Format of this game?

Re-rise of Fawad Alam

What would one do when someone is not in consideration of the cricketing board despite the great debut and top performer in first class cricket in last 11 years.

Most of the people lose hope to play for their country again or lose their form but everyone is not Fawad Alam here.

Yes Fawad Alam who were cornered by pakistan cricket board and Selection panel for almost 11 years despite the 168 on Test debut and the top scorer in first class cricket with record holding Average.

Fawad started his career back in July 2009 against Sri Lanka in Colombo when he score 168 out of team score of 320.Team included Younis khan,Mohammad yousuf,Misbah-ul-haq but this karachi born left hander took all appreciation in that game.

It wasn’t enough to save Pakistan from a seven-wicket defeat, but the general consensus was that Pakistan had unearthed a gem, a gritty and determined batsman who would serve them very well and for many years to come.

With an unorthodox batting stance,Fawad was looking as a great top order batsman who provide flexibility to the team.Great player of spin and Efficient against pace make him Every Captain’s dream player.

But what happened to Fawad Alam is not a secret.Pakistan cricket team strange selections policies is still the big controversy and mystery that unresolved over the past few years.

Fawad got ignored for so many years by the national selection committee despite his solid performance in season after season.Legendary player and That time Cheif Selector Inzamam-ul haque once said that “We had a great player than Fawad so we don’t need him” shows the hypocrisy of the pakistan cricket.

Despite ignored by Selection Committee Fawad never stop scoring tons of runs and never criticized Board for not being picked.He just said when Almighty wants me to play for country it will happen.

After almost 11 years he called for National team on England tour on two matches series where he got one chance in Southampton scoring 0 and 21 in both innings.

After that he scored stunning 103 against New Zealand when his team was 3 down for 30 odd runs.He almost took his team to victory alongside with Rizwan but couldn’t finished.

Currently playing in his first Test in Pakistan, in his home city of Karachi, Fawad has once again defied his critics and made a century when his team needed it most. Coming into bat with the score at 27 for 4, Fawad compiled a typical gritty century, attacking when it was needed, displaying patience and excellent technique against the impressive South African pace-bowlers and their wily spinners.

35 years old Player make gritty 109 runs that put Pakistan team forward in the match against Proteas.In Press Conference he was asked by reporters that who would be the one that get blame for missing your last 10 years cricket but as always Fawad said I don’t want to blame anyoneand who I am to do that,May be it was my destiny and now I just want to focused on my Cricket.

The reasons for Fawad not being selected remain a mystery, but it is abundantly clear that the ongoing match against South Africa should not be only his eighth Test. There is a lesson to be learnt here for future Pakistani selection committees

Gabba Fortress breached as Indian team claims historic series win

What were you thought the result of Border- Gavaskar trophy after Indian team 36 all out and pathetic Adelaide defeat?Yes that Indian team without Kohli,Shami and Ishant will lose series with 4 – 0 margin.

Everybody thinks the same way but Indian team don’t .They created history by winning the border gavaskar trophy back to back in Australia.They were bullied,bruises but bounce back in the series and claims the biggest series win of the Indian test history.

Indian tem retain Border-Gavaskar trophy with a historic three-wicket win over Australia in the fourth and final Test here, successfully chasing a 328-run target to seal the four-match series 2-1.

Rishabh Pant (89 not out off 138 balls) channelled his inner ‘Mad Max’ to scare the daylights out of the Australians with his breathtaking strokeplay, ending the home team’s 32-year-old unbeaten run at the ‘Fortress Gabba’.

Shubham Gill (91 off 146 balls) announced his arrival on the global stage, Cheteshwar Pujara (56 off 211 balls) surpassed all the pain barriers en route his slowest Test fifty that held the game in balance for Pant to launch a final assault.

Before Pant the Credit goes to Gill and Cheteshwar Pujara,specially Pujara who hit the few bowls on his hands,ribs and head but stuck to the wicket and make way for Pant to start his destruction.Everybody was taunting and criticising Pujara for his slow batting but Pujara brings the Real Test Cricket in your team.

Also we should not forget the Debutant Washington Sundar and T Natarajan who were in the team as net bowlers and made a splendid debut for the team,especially Sundar with bat in first inning alongside with Shardul Thakur.That 123 runs partnership kept alive indian team in this match and help them to seal the historic win.

Mohammad Siraj who was just 2 match old in his Test Carrer and lead the Bowling attack was commendable.Siraj picks 13 wickets most by an Indian in this series with that crucial and fabulous 5-fer in second inning of Gabba Test.

There was no time in last few years that people celebrated draws more than victory buy this Indian team change this mindset too in Sydney Test.

The Australian team wouldn’t feel too good about not being able to win a Test match with an opposition that was finding it difficult to field a fit first XI a day prior to the Test match.

The series will be remembered for ages and the impact that Ajinkya Rahane‘s team had on the cricketing fraternity and the fans in general will be written in golden words when a fresh history of Test cricket after 2000 is written.

In terms of relevance, a series win without Virat Kohli, Mohammed Shami, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin and Jasprit Bumrah not being available at various points, is zillion times more significant than the 2-1 win in 2018-19 when the opposition didn’t have Steve Smith and David Warner in its ranks.

All I can say that This series shows the passion,dedication and Character of the indian team that lead to a historic series win.

What you think about this series and indian team performance?
