Pujara played a key role in India's 2-1 series win, scoring centuries in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney.

India coach Ravi Shastri has lauded his "in your face" captain, while taking a stunning aim at critics after the historic Test series defeat of Australia.

"It's amusing, in a big series of four Tests you go back to a couple of key moments in the very first Test where we let ourselves down, or India outplayed us, and you get to the end of the series and it's really hard to take", said the wicketkeeper.

Prior to their current trip, India had toured Australia on ten occasions over a 71-year period but never managed to win a Test series in the tough conditions Down Under.

"There's lot of time in Test cricket". "I don't think it was just those two", he said of questions of Marsh and Khawaja's output against India as the team's senior batsmen. "We can't help that we haven't got Michael Husseys, Michael Bevans, Jamie Coxs - it's fantasy", he said.

As the team headed for the hotel, the fans stood in the lobby and played different songs as the players broke into rounds of dance.

Former England captain Mike Atherton, writing in The Australian, laid much of the blame for the batting woes on a degrading of the importance of the four-day domestic Sheffield Shield competition, once the envy of the world.

"If you think Australia's problems will be solved the moment Steve Smith and David Warner are available for selection again then you are wrong", he said in a column for the Sydney Morning Herald. "We have faith in them going forward", he said. "World Cup '83, World Championship '85".

"As a batsman, you just need to get used to pace and bounce (in Australia). To see them win, to see them lift the trophy was really really wonderful". "They've got an opportunity through an unusual situation and I thought both those guys acquitted themselves really well". Sometimes that was due to the pressure they were put under by Indian batsmen. The group of bowlers we have in this team have been fantastic for quite a while now.
