A few brilliant knocks, good bowling spells and poor fielding standards.
There were a lot of things in this series that can be talked about.
But, this series will always be remembered for the latest cricket rule called Concussion Substitute.
Right in the first game of the series, Ravindra Jadeja got a blow on his helmet.
After the completion of his batting, Yuzvendra Chahal, who was not in the actual eleven came out to bowl in his place.
But the surprising fact was that Jadeja never looked out of comfort due the blow he got on his head.
Rather he was having some issues in running and was seen holding his hamstrings.
Eventually, Chahal went on to get a 3-Wicket Hall and got the Man of the Match award.
This added insult to injury for the aussies.
Australian Coach, Justin Langer was seen being furious with the replacement.
Keeping all this aside, India won the first two games comfortably and went on to lift the trophy.
However, they lost the last game in Sydney.
Thus, the pattern remain the same as in ODI series.
Talking about individual performances, there were a few handy events for Team India.
Hardik Pandya kept his ODI form in the T20Is as well.
Even though he missed out in the last T-20, his knock of 42 in second match was really crucial as he went out to finish the game with 14 to get in the final over.
Virat Kohli was all guns blazing and got knocks of 85 and 40.
Jadeja was really terrific in the first game. His knock of 44 was crucial as he was the lone warrior there.
But who was the find of the series??
Of course it was T. Natarajan.
He was among the wickets in each game getting 6 scalps in total at a brilliant economy.
His yorkers and death bowling didn’t let Bumrah’s absence being felt.
Interestingly, both Bumrah and Natarajan have made their debut in Australia.
Also, the number of wickets in their first ODI and T20I are same.
All these coincidences can be really great if he can go on and keep doing things that Bumrah does for the team.
While there were a lot of positives, there were a handful negatives as well.
1. Sanju Samson who got opportunities in all the games failed miserably.
He got starts in every game and threw his wicket every time putting his side in trouble.
His inconsistency was quite similar in IPL as well where he hits a few good knocks but never ever shows consistency.
2. Deepak Chahar didn’t look at his best as he was taken for a few boundaries at the start which you normally don’t associate with him.
3. Shreyas Iyer has done good in ODIs but it’s not sure whether he holds that place in T20s as well.
Now, from here we move towards the Pink Ball Test in Adelaide.
What do you think will be the result of this Test Series??
