Ravi Shastri Trolled For Obscene Comment After India's Historic Win In Adelaide

India Win Historic Test at Adelaide, Beat Australia by 31 Runs

India Win Historic Test at Adelaide, Beat Australia by 31 Runs

"We want to continue with this mindset", Kohli observed during his post-match interaction with the media. He also came under fire during the series against England this year, when he opined that the current squad is the best travelled Indian Test team. This one (31-run victory) however, is way better.

"Obviously it's a great feeling".

Australia will nonetheless be desperate for early wickets on day four to have hope of restricting India to a gettable total. "The lower-order gets to face the bowlers when they are a little bit more exhausted traditionally and that makes a difference, but if we can get through tougher conditions at the start we want our top-six batting when that was happening this afternoon".

"Mitch Marsh probably hasn't been as consistent as he would like and we would like", Paine said, confirming that Marsh would be a likely inclusion later on in the Test summer. It was just a matter of one mistake or one good ball.

Kane Williamson has become the first New Zealand batsman and 32nd overall to break the 900-point barrier in the ICC Player Rankings for Test Batsmen following a stellar performance in the third Test against Pakistan, which helped his side to win their first away series in 49 years. "We know the talent Mitch has. We need to tighten up". "We did not take anything for granted". They have a red-hot crack [at] every ball and that's what we're building to.

Paine underlined that they need to get more runs from the top-order going ahead.

But just as she appeared to be cooling the temperature, Schumer and Trump traded verbal blows like New Yorkers rowing over a taxi. Instead, Trump said he'd take responsibility for any shuttering of government. "I'm going to shut it down for border security".

"There was some rash shots played in the first innings, that was foolish cricket, but they learnt from it. Pujara was absolutely magnificent, we've asked him to be a little more upright to counter bounce in these conditions".

Australia's attempt to emulate their Ashes bowling formula from last summer, combined with question marks over a batting line-up shorn of Steven Smith and David Warner, has forced the omission of the vice-captain Mitchell Marsh from the team to face India in the first Test of the summer at a draining Adelaide Oval. "That's a very positive sign". This Test we haven't been able to get a set batter right through or a number of batters right through.

'They're fitter, have more pace in the ball now for longer periods and they understand that their job at certain times is just to contain. "They have to keep improving on this", he opined.

Shastri endorsed comments from skipper Virat Kohli that India needed to maintain the rage in Perth. Ponting thinks they should stick to the batting order of the first Test. "It is a good start for him and he should look to raise the bar", Kohli said about the off-spinner.

"Pujara's runs were the difference in Adelaide, he made the only century for the match".

However, after Australia were bowled out for 235, they were quick to seize the momentum and build valuable partnerships to all but bat Australia out of the game.
