Indian cricket team head coach Ravi Shastri said on Tuesday that winning the Test series in Australia in 2018-19 for a first time in 71 years was special and added that the World Championship win in 1985 was the most special memory for him as a player. It is good to be a part of these two teams, as a coach that series in Australia, is going to very special and hard to beaten, because that team unbeaten in 71 years by any Asian team. There have been plenty who have gone there, tried their best, and everyone knows how tough is to beat Australia in Australia in Test match cricket, but in white ball cricket you can’t beat 1985 as a player. To win both is fantastic.
India became the first Asian team to beat Australia in a Test series at home as the Virat Kohli-led side claimed the four-match series 2-1. Australia won the first match by 34 runs, recording their 1,000th win in the international cricket, but India came back strongly to win the series comfortably.
