India vs Australia four-Test series, which the hosts won 2-1 to reclaim the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Lauding the highly competitive nature of the series, the fit-again batsman felt it was the best among the four home rubbers this season. “The last series against the Australians was the best among the 3-4 series at home because of the way it went through from the first Test. Losing the first Test and then bouncing back to win two Test matches (to win the series 2-1) was a fantastic effort (by India),” said Sharma in Mumbai on Sunday.
“India-Australia series have always seen good rivalry over the years and I was not surprised at what happened. When you play against a top side in the world, these things are bound to happen. As long as one remembers not to cross limits it’s good.
“It was a hard-fought battle and some things were blown out of proportion. Players know what needs to be done on and off field,” he concluded.
“It was not about one individual; a lot of guys came in at different times, took up the challenge and performed, which is why it was the best series. The wickets were not easy and were challenging for batters. It was wonderful to watch from outside.”Via
