India vs Australia Previous Series Stats
The India vs Australia series will never be short of excitement and controversy. It is no exaggeration to say that this sensation lasts from the time of Kapil Dev to the time of Virat Kohli. There is no doubt that matches between the two teams will always be a treat for the fans whether it takes place in Australia or India.
Here is another India vs Australia 2020 Live Streaming Series to be held in December 2020. The Indian cricket team continues its tour of Australia with its full strength, playing 4 Tests, 3 ODIs, and 3 Tests. The tour of Australia has never been a big success for India. From 1970 to 2003 Australia’s hand was raised.
The first Test series victory in Australia was blocked in 2003 by the Indian team led by Anil Kumble. Then in 2018, the Indian team led by Virat Kohli won the Test series and set a historic record. While the absence of key players Steve Smith and David Warner in the series is said to be the reason for India’s success, there is no denying that India is unlucky in that series.
Nearly 71 years later, Virat Kohli’s side beat Australia 2-1 on home soil. In this situation, the goalie’s team is banging on with the intention of winning the series again. Let’s take a look back at the Indian players who played well in the 2018 tour.
Virat Kohli was the aggressive captain throughout the Australian series. He scored 282 runs in the last Test series. Most importantly, he scored 123 runs in the 2nd Test. But India lost that match. Captain Cole also scored his 25th century in the Perth Test.
Despite being criticized now, Rishabh Punt was seen as a star of hope in the then Australia series. Whether or not the batting played better, Punt was the one who stood behind the stumps and entertained the Aussies with “sledding”. But Rishabh Punt, who made his debut in the crucial 4th Test of the series, scored 159 runs. In total, he scored 350 runs in the series and was named the good boy.
Pujara saved the wall in the Australia series after Rahul Dravid. Pujara scored a total of 521 runs in 4 matches in that series. Pujara is the only Indian batsman to score more runs in that series. He scored 193 runs in a Test match. Pujara was also selected as the series hero of the series.
