Kohli's 2019 Ashes advice for Australia: 'Dukes ball buries egos'

Kohli's 2019 Ashes advice for Australia: 'Dukes ball buries egos'

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. But sometimes we get nervous as batsmen, we don't quite realise it. "Rishabh came up with it and we just joined in".

His bowling changes were spot on and while team selection in Perth came under scanner, no one can question the intent of the Indian skipper, who has shown that he only plays to win a Test match.

For some Australians the series will always carry an asterisk given their two best batsmen, Steve Smith and David Warner, were unavailable because of bans they received for the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa a year ago.


India want to use their maiden Test series victory in Australia to inspire their next generation of stars and revive the red-ball format at home.

India clinched the four-match series 2-1 in Sydney on Monday, sparking national celebrations. It may happen in one Test but not over the course of a five-match series. This winter, spearheaded by Jasprit Bumrah, it has been extraordinary, more than matching Australia's vaunted trio of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins because the Indian pace bowlers have generated more lateral movement.

"It's a great feeling for all of us". Paine felt Indian batsmen stepping up and scoring runs at crucial junctures in the series is something their batsmen can learn from.


"That's how you win Test matches".

"Their best players stood up in the big moments or when they were falling behind in a game, one of their good players dragged them back into contest, or when they were in front of the game they put us out of the game like they did in Sydney and Melbourne. That's why India won this series", said Paine. 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. "To beat England in England, they have to bowl more intelligently".

Marcus Harris top-scored for the hosts with 79, Australia's highest individual score in the series. "Not really, no. I've got enough on my plate at the moment".
