Australia vs India: The former Australia captain Ricky Ponting, was one of the first to predict India’s whitewash by the Aussies. However when the results came. Ponting was shocked as India won the Border-Gavaskar Trophy by defeating Australia in the fourth Test at the Gabba on Tuesday. India won the series by 2-1.

While speaking to cricket.com.au. “I’m quite shocked that Australia weren’t quite good enough to win this series. The cold hard facts of it are pretty much that was the India A team that played this Test match and (India) still won,” 

India missed their prominent players including the skipper Virat Kohli. Playing a fairly inexperienced bowling line-up against the hosts in the final Test match. However, the bowling attack did a marvellous job. Mohammed Siraj’s maiden five-wicket haul to set sight of win. But it was Shubman Gill and Rishabh Pant who made sure India crossed the line.

Ponting also praised Sundar’s confident batting. Playing the Aussie pacer with ease.
