After winning successive Test series against West Indies, South Africa, South Africa again, Bangladesh, England, Sri Lanka, India and West Indies, Australia finally lost away to India and are now ABSOLUTELY SHOCKING at cricket.
India’s recent run of losing a series against Australia, drawing one against South Africa, losing one against Sri Lanka before winning this one, hints that they are now perhaps the new supreme power in world cricket.
Australia were soundly beaten and seemingly accepted that before the series had even started, but their first choice team isn’t a great deal different to the one that beat India at the start of the year. India have won a great series, but have hardly been rollicking along other than that.
The papers like see a clean handover of power though, so that’s what they’ll depict. The irony is that it IS a clearcut handover of power. India are now the Alternative Test Cricket World Champions.
