That all but destroyed home hopes of a face-saving victory and India's spinners then got to work to drive home the advantage in the field against an Australia side that failed to muster a single century over the series.

Ravichandran Ashwin before he got injured and Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav also played their part to perfection as Indian bowlers put up relentless pressure on the home team batsmen. "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".

"I think whether Australia has a full playing XI or not, the potential that the current (Indian) team has certainly makes this their best opportunity to win a series in Australia".

India coach Ravi Shastri has lauded his "in your face" captain, while taking a stunning aim at critics after the historic Test series defeat of Australia. "We honestly feel that we let that Test slip", Paine said on Monday (January 7). Nawab of Pataudi led India went to New Zealand to play a four-match Test 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. "But throughout the series, more often than not, when those big moments came up, Virat has scored runs, Pujara has scored runs, Bumrah has bowled a great spell and we couldn't quite get through those moments", he said. It may happen in one Test but not over the course of a five-match series. Indian went to Wellington with series being 1-1.

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

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. 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.

"Our bowlers at times bowled really well in this series, at times they didn't".

"At the moment, I do not see Australia having those attributes".
