Kohli hails series win as his 'proudest moment'

Kohli hails series win as his 'proudest moment'

Former player Shastri rated the 2-1 result as possibly even bigger than India's wins in the 1983 World Cup and 1985 World Championship of Cricket one-day tournaments, as it was achieved in "the truest format of the game".

Paine said the Adelaide Test could have gone in his side's favour also and India won crucial moments thereafter in the series. We didn't work on feeling good about the things that we did well. This winter, spearheaded by Jasprit Bumrah, it has been extraordinary, more than matching Australia's vaunted trio of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins because the Indian pace bowlers have generated more lateral movement.

In 28 matches played against Australia, Kohli has notched up 1182 runs at an average of 51.39 with 5 hundreds and 5 half centuries.

It is the first time India managed the feat since they began touring Australia in 1947-48.

"Coming into the series, we honestly felt in Australia we could beat India".

"That's how you win Test matches".

The Australians had just one lbw dismissal in the entire India series, he said, indicating there were not enough deliveries directed at the stumps. But sometimes we get nervous as batsmen, we don't quite realise it. They are dictating terms now which is the most incredible thing you can ask for from your bowlers'.

"We understood as a team we were on the right track". The southpaw would be raring to go after being left out of the Test squad against Australia. "They didn't have their absolute best series but it's not easy at this level and that can happen". "We also played to win but this team is at a different level in terms of fitness and the captain has shown the way".

"The first hundred was special". Sometimes it's hard when it seems so far away, but we have three players there who are one innings away from really breaking through.

Marcus Harris top-scored for the hosts with 79, Australia's highest individual score in the series. You just want to get away quickly but in England you're not allowed to do that.
