The Indian cricketers, after scripting one of the most memorable overseas wins in the recent Test series in Australia, received a rousing reception as they came back to India from completing the tour Down Under. India was forced to make lots of changes in their playing XI throughout the four-match Test series due to injuries and the unavailability of some of the cricketers.

The Test series saw the visitors handing debuts to as many as five players. Despite the constant chopping and changing in the XI and fielding an inexperienced side, India managed to win the series 2-1.

In a series of tweets, Anand Mahindra hailed Shardul Thakur, Shubman Gill, Mohammed Siraj, Navdeep Saini, Washington Sundar, and T Natarajan for inspiring the future generations to “dream and explore the impossible.”

In the Test series, Siraj was the leading wicket-taker for India, as he managed to scalp as many as 13 wickets in three matches. Shardul and Washington played a key role with both the bat and ball in the final Test in Brisbane as India ended Australia’s 32-year-old unbeaten run at the Gabba.
