IND VS AUS: After the fourth and final Test in Ahmedabad finished in a draw, India defeated Australia again to win the four-match Test series and retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, 2-1. Starting from the front, Rohit Sharma immediately made his intentions known by smashing a century in Nagpur’s opening match. While the entire Australian team collapsed to just 177. India overcame Australia by innings and 132 runs there because of his effort. And significant support from Axar Patel and Ravindra Jadeja further down the order.

Regarding the ball, R Ashwin and Jadeja’s lethal partnership wreaked havoc while Rohit showed bravery with the bat. Jadeja took five wickets in the first innings of his first international match. After recovering from a knee injury, Ashwin did the same in the second. As the venues kept changing, Ashwin and Jadeja’s domination persisted, and the fourth and final Test was played on a dead track. With virtually any help for the bowlers.

Together, the two players took 47 wickets during the series and shared the Player of the Series honor. During the post-game press conference on Monday, Rohit was questioned about the two of them and gave a pretty direct reaction. But he didn’t hold back when he praised the two, describing them as the team’s biggest assets in the last ten years.

“Honestly, if they are around, I don’t know, I’ll be around (laughs). But four years is a long time. I mean, for the sake of Indian cricket, I hope they stay and play a lot of cricket for India. Honestly, both of them are marathon players for us. They know exactly how to get the job done. Especially in this part of the world, you give them the ball. They get you those breakthroughs. With the bat, they get you crucial runs. Very, very important players for us.”

“Where we stand today, in terms of how we performed, especially in Indian conditions, a lot of credit goes to them. A large part of our success belongs to those two guys. You know it’s not just for a few years. It’s been over a decade now. So it’s a long time to keep performing in the way these two guys have done for us.”

Sharma said

In the lengthier format, Ashwin, aged 36, is India’s second-highest wicket-taker behind spin icon Anil Kumble. On the other side, Jadeja is two years his junior. Ashwin and Jadeja continued to dominate despite the shifting sites, although the Ahmedabad pitch was unfavourable for the bowlers as the batters took advantage of the better track.

Nonetheless, Jadeja and Ashwin shared the Player of the Series honour thanks to their combined 47 wickets during the four-match series. The two all-rounders, according to Rohit, are a key factor in India’s success during the past ten years.
