The script could not have been better than this, a clean sweep against New Zealand in the test series and number one test side in the world simultaneously. This Young side brilliantly led by Virat Kohli did their job with clinical precision which carries a sense of Pride with each of their achievements in the field.
The series win with the scoreline of 3-0 in the series against New Zealand is the Perfect indicator of the things to be lined up in the coming days. The way this team is shaping up its signalling towards the era of dominance for this newly crowned number one test team in the world.
The team has got more green ticks as compared to the red ones at the moment which is igniting a lot of hopes for the future, first of all it has got the balanced and potent bowling unit which is the very first requirement to get those twenty wickets in a test match. The reign of this bowling unit is in the hands of Affable Ashwin who is donning the role of a leader of the packs with Elan and confidence.
In Indian conditions a team needs at least two good spinners who can complement each other to create constant pressure on the opposition and Ravindra Jadeja is one such bowler who not only provides able support to Ravichandran Ashwin but also chipped in with crucial breakthroughs when chips were down.
Likewise Mohammad Shami Bowled an outstanding spell in the second test when spinners were looking a little out of sorts. Bhuwaneshwar Kumar also bowled an exceptional spell in the second test match. This was a complete team performance where each of the team member was replacing each other with a lot of ease and purpose to contribute in the success of the team.
They were enjoying each other’s success more than ever instead of vying for their places, that is the strength of this cohesive unit which has just regained the number one test ranking and earned the official Test Mace for this wonderful achievement.
Just before the conclusion I would like to mention the consistency of Cheteshwar Pujara, solid start from Murli Vijay, reliable batting of Ajinkya Rahane in the middle order, Ravindra Jadeja and Wridhiman Saha’s late assault in the lower order, last but not the least Virat Kohli’s masterly knock of 211. All these and many more performances of substance were the hallmark of this series. Above all the infectious energy of Virat Kohli is rubbing on every individual of this team of world beaters.
