Talking about the same during a chat on Sports Today, Kane Williamson said, “Anytime you play Australia it’s incredibly tough and to play in their backyard is an added challenge. For India to go there and perform the way they did, in particular with so many injuries and players out. It was truly a remarkable victory. You throw in the Test Championship context that’s added but I think just the challenge they faced and the way they stood up”.

He further added, “I think their bowling unit collectively had 7 or 8 Tests between them going into the last game and at the Gabba as well. No doubt, India would have been absolutely thrilled, the supporters watching that match I am sure the team got a huge buzz out of that as well. Also, after such a long time away, after the IPL they went straight to Australia, so no doubt they must be enjoying their time with family.”
