Virat Kohli congratulated Rahane and wrote: “What a great victory, the whole team performed brilliantly. I couldn’t be happier with that and especially with Ajinkya who led the team to victory by being a brilliant captain. You have to get out of here ”.
What a victory it is, an absolutely incredible effort from the whole team. I couldn’t be happier for the boys and especially for Jinks who led the team to victory surprisingly. Forward and up from here

Other than that, both players who made their debut were quite impressed. The two were very confident and didn’t panic. The real strength of Indian cricket is strong bench strength.
Many positive points of this victory. Rahane led the side brilliantly, the bowlers were relentless but the biggest positive was the performance of two rookies. Both were confident and were not intimidated by the great opportunity. The strength of Indian cricket is its strong bench strength.

Mauled during the previous test.
No Kohli, Shami, Ishant, Rohit.
Whatever the struggle, you can decide even if life knocks you down, you will get up again and never stop fighting.
And that’s what #TeamIndia did under @ ajinkyarahane88! #INDvAUS
Incredible feedback !!!
