Anil Kumble got India-Australia series result prediction absolutely spot on

Michael Di Venuto

India scored 622 for 7 in their first innings and then bowled out Australia for 300 thereby enforcing the follow-on.

"See, when you work hard and prepare for a goal, as a team you want to achieve those goals". Sometimes that was due to the pressure they were put under by the Indian batsmen. "We thought we had a number of opportunities during that Test to go well ahead of the game and when those key moments came up India outplayed us to be honest".

Prime Minister Imran Khan congratulated the Indian cricket team on becoming the first ever sub-continent team to win a Test match in Australia. In 2015, with Smith and Warner in the side, they conceded the urn after four Tests, having been dismissed for 136 at Edgbaston and 60 - an innings that lasted just 18.3 overs - at Trent Bridge.

Fittest, unstoppable and consistency personified - India's history-making cricket team was showered with gushing praise by former players, with batting great Sunil Gavaskar slamming criticism that the triumph came against a weakened Australian team.

"It's amusing, in a big series of four Tests you go back to a couple of key moments in the very first Test where we let ourselves down, or India outplayed us, and you get to the end of the series and it's really hard to take", said the wicketkeeper. It may happen in one Test but not over the course of a five-match series.

Tim Paine's side were unable to paper over the cracks left by their absence, and even the vaunted pace attack of Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins failed to fire, except for spells in the victory in Perth. Indian went to Wellington with series being 1-1.

Virat Kohli is a very happy man as his Indian team became the first team from Asia to beat Australia on their own turf.

It was the third consecutive day in Sydney that was affected by either bad light or rain but that didn't stop a loud group of India's fans cheering, dancing, waving flags and singing in the rain for much of the morning session. India won their maiden away Test series. They are dictating terms now which is the most fantastic thing you can ask for from your bowlers'.

Australia's misfiring top six hit an unprecedented low, with Marcus Harris' 79 in Sydney the highest score that any of them have managed in this series. "Not really, no. I've got enough on my plate at the moment".
