Brisbane: Surprising everyone, Team India has once again won the Border Gavaskar Trophy on the land of Australia. No one expected such a performance before this series, but the result was such that it will be remembered for centuries. Australian coach Langer is also surprised by India’s performance.
Unhappy after losing the Test series to a young Indian team struggling with fitness problems, Australian coach Justin Langer said that he has learned a big lesson from the shock that the Indian team should never be underestimated. India won the series 2–1 with the fourth Test.

Langer said, ‘It was a great Test series. Finally one loses and one wins. Today Test cricket is won. This defeat will haunt us for a long time. Full credit goes to Team India. We have learned a lesson from it.
He said, ‘First thing is never to take anything lightly and secondly, never underestimate Indians. India has a population of one and a half billion and if you are in its playing XI then you will be a really good and strong player.
That word from the Australian coach ☺

Justin Langer said that India’s comeback was spectacular after being dismissed for 36 in Adelaide, especially after injury to big players like Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja.
He said, ‘The praise of the Indian team is less. Even after losing the first match in 3 days, he did not give up and made a great comeback. We have got a big lesson and will never take India lightly.
Regarding Rishabh Pant’s unbeaten innings of 89 runs included in the heroes of victory, he said, ‘That was a great innings. I remember Ben Stokes’ innings at Headingley. He played fearlessly and his innings was incredible. Shubman Gill also batted well.
