Sydney... coming full circle... Where it all began for Kohli as Test Captain... could be where he achieves the Holy Grail of Indian Test cricket... A series win Down Under

If I were selector I'd pick...

Agarwal, Vihari, Pujara, Kohli, Rahane, Pandya, Pant, Ashwin, Jadeja, Ishant and Bumrah...

Sad for Shami to miss out...but this would give me greatest confidence we will win the series.

All bases covered... pace, spin and longer batting...

Normally Sydney is a good batting wicket that spins a bit later... but maybe Aussies are scared of India's FAST bowlers and will prepare a big turner... thinking Lyon will be their ace...like in Perth...smiling smiley

I like this squad. Batting of Ashwin and Jadeja will more than compensate for the absence of Rohit.
And bowling will be much stronger.

They picked Kuldeep instead of Ashwin.. with over 600 in the bank Kuldeep could be a trump card... I am really looking forward to see the two slow left armers... Jadeja and Kuldeep in tandem.... will be FUN....

They have taken 5 out of 6 wickets so far. Bumrah has been wicketless.

History made...Pujara deserved man of series. But so did the bowling unit.

For sure. Not quite like 1971 series wins in West Indies and England. More like the 2003 win in Pakistan. Now only South Africa remains unconqered. With the Indian fast bowling unit now that shouldn’t be too far away

Now when it has been achieved, expect a few more in Australia and other countries in quick succession. This will give them belief.
