New Delhi: Team India has once again succeeded on Australian soil. The visiting team beat the hosts 2-1 in the Test Series. This victory is important because most of the Indian players were injured and this victory was achieved on the basis of additional players.
Weeds in the AUS team
If 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 formidable comeback after losing Adelaide’s test and the absence of Virat Kohli. It happened in the presence of David Warner and Steve Smith, which was not expected.

Tim Paine’s captaincy threatened
This is the second time that Team India has won the Test Series on Australian soil. When India won the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in 2018-19, Tim Paine was the captain of the Kangaroo team. It is very possible that after the failures Cricket Australia could make a big decision regarding the harbor office at Penn.
Penn’s Record from the Test Harbor Office
Tim Paine was Test captain for Australia in 23 tests, winning 11 and losing 8. Apart from that, 4 matches were drawn. The winning percentage in these matches is only 47.82. In other words, they suffered loss in more than half of the game. His record is far worse than that of many former Australian captains.
Steve Smith is the suitor
There is a new demand to make Steve Smith Australia’s test captain. Former Aussies like Ian Healy were also at bat to hand over command to Smith. Smith was stripped of his captain post after the ball tampering incident in 2018. In such a situation, given his experience, responsibility can be returned.
