One day after India suffered a 2–1 defeat, most of Australia are still surprised how they actually accepted a home series, not even the Indian team with full force. Through the four-Test series, India were without their regular captain Virat Kohli, they were hamstrung by injuries in every single Test, resulting in more than 20 players from their squad playing and eventually had to do with handing over their net bowlers. .
Indian cap. Nevertheless, a full force fell short of the markers needed for Australia, despite the toss advantage, only to be beaten in every aspect by India after being dismissed for 36 in Adelaide.

“I am quite surprised that Australia was not good enough to win this series,” Ponting told the Cricket Australia website on Wednesday (20 January). “The Indian cricket team has been going with the captain keeping everything in mind for the last five or six weeks, all the injuries they have had – they have been through 20 players – (Australia) have been with full strength all the time Davey (Warner) missed out early, so it’s hard to explain.

Australia performed poorly at the loss of eight wickets in Melbourne. He bounced back in Sydney to capture the Test until the pairing of R Ashwin and Hanuma Vihari, who worked hard to play a brilliant draw on the final day.In Brisbane, after being in control of most of the game, the unlikely hero for India was Washington Sundar and Shardul Thakur – not with the ball, but with the bat – India were on the mat for 6 wickets at 186, to turn the game over. For a 123-run stand-en-route half-century that left Australia with a major lead. The pair returned after taking three wickets in the first innings.

He said, “There are a lot of hard facts of the cold that was the India A team that played this Test match and (India) still won. It’s a real concern for Australia. I think that we had Australia Gave India the benefit of doubt. Warner and (Steve) Smith were not here, but this time, Australia is at full strength and India is on their team bones – they are playing net bowlers in Test matches and they still win. Are a matter of concern for Australia.

A tour of South Africa for three Tests is Australia’s next assignment. Ponting does not want to make up for India’s loss since 14 February.

“He was the No. 1 ranked Test team in the world after coming into the series,” Ponting said. “They are doing a lot of things right. There is no need for any nervousness, but they have found a way to play better cricket. I can’t see how anyone could turn that side.

“I’m sure it’s a very bitter pill for Justin (Langer, Australia’s coach) and the boys to swallow Sydney, like they did to dominate Sydney and not win and for the majority of the game at Brisbane’s Stayed in control and then lost, me. It’s going to sting, that’s one. There might be some talk about Matthew Wade, but I think on every other basis he’s got the best players in those positions, It is about those who are playing better.I think we will see a very quick reaction from this group of players.

“They go to South Africa next, it’s never easy over there, but you have to answer – what good teams do. And if they want to be the world’s No. 1 team, they have to bounce back. Very quickly. , “They said.
