Australia have passed 300 runs just three times in 14 innings since Warner and Smith were banned last March, with a highest score of 362 for eight, and Vaughan said the team was not producing enough runs to make them competitive. 1 win in the series brought much happiness to the entire team as well as the rest of the country.
'It is a young bunch of guys and to have that belief to keep striving for excellence on a daily basis and to get a reward like this we definitely have to be happy'. "We had our chances in Adelaide, and in Perth I thought we played some good cricket, but in Melbourne and Sydney, we've been outplayed".
The Indian top order, who scored 262 runs in four Test matches, urged the Aussie batsmen to leave their egos at home to win against the Dukes ball.
India's first ever Test series win in New Zealand came when they toured them in 1968.
India won its maiden Test series in Australia on Monday, and all hell broke loose in the form of celebrations. The draw gave India a 2-1 series win.
It is the first time India managed the feat since they began touring Australia in 1947-48.
"It's a great feeling for all of us".
'That's the determination and the ruthlessness, the mindset with which this team went out to play in this series.
The tourists, led by magnificent series from batting rock Cheteshwar Pujara and superb slinger Jasprit Bumrah, achieved it in clinical fashion to expose the huge void left by Steve Smith and David Warner's suspensions and raise questions about the potency of Australia's attack. Putting runs on the board again is the most important thing to win Test matches.
"Their best players stood up in the big moments or when they were falling behind in a game, one of their good players dragged them back into contest, or when they were in front of the game they put us out of the game like they did in Sydney and Melbourne". Australia are unable to play long innings.
"At the moment, I do not see Australia having those attributes".
