new Delhi: Team India has once again succeeded on the land of Australia. The visiting team has beaten the hosts 2–1 in the Test series. This victory is important because most of the players of India were injured and this victory has been achieved on the basis of additional players.
Weeds in the AUS Team
While there is a joy of victory in the Indian camp, there is mourning in the Australian team. The Kangaroos had little hope that Team India would make a tremendous comeback after losing the Adelaide Test and the absence of Virat Kohli. It happened in the presence of David Warner and Steve Smith, which was not expected.

Tim Paine captaincy threatened
This is the second time that Team India has won the Test series on the land of Australia. When India won the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in 2018-19, Tim Paine was the captain of the Kangaroo team. It is quite possible that after failures, Cricket Australia can take a big decision regarding the captaincy of Penn.
Penn’s record of Test captaincy
Tim Paine has captained the Test for Australia in 23 Tests, winning 11, losing 8. Apart from this, 4 matches have been drawn. The win percentage in these matches is just 47.82. That is, they have suffered defeat in more than half the match. His record is much worse than many former Australian captains.
Steve Smith is the contender
There is a demand once again to make Steve Smith Australia’s Test captain. Former Australian players like Ian Healy have also been batting to hand over the command to Smith. In 2018, Smith was stripped of his captaincy after the ball tampering incident. In such a situation, given his experience, responsibility can be given once again.
