“Over the past nine weeks, the Indian and Australian men’s teams
completed outstanding One-Day International and Twenty20 International Series,
followed by one of the greatest Border-Gavaskar Test series ever contested”, the
Australian cricket board wrote on Twitter.
It highlighted that the BCCI, despite facing health and logistical
challenges, engaged in the series with a spirit of cooperation, hailing the
latter as one of international sport’s greatest ambassadors.
“From the sublime fast bowling of Jasprit Bumrah and Pat Cummins,
to the wonderful batting of Ajinkya Rahane and Steve Smith, to the exciting
debuts of Shubman Gill and Cameron Green – and much, much more – the past two
months of cricket have been absolutely enthralling”, the board further said.

The ODI series was won by Australia, whereas the T20 International
series was won by India. In a hard-fought contest, India succeeded in winning the
Test series after drawing 1-1 and a stellar performance in the third Test
leading to the sustenance of the draw, until the final nail in the coffin of
the Australian team which came in the fourth Test, as India secured their
domination in the Border Gavaskar trophy, also breaking Australia’s more than
three-decade long record in the Gabba.
