The series was neven sort of actions and entertainment. It started with a hectic batting collapse by Indian batsmen at Adelaide and ended with a historical run chase at Gabba to finish the series. And there wasn’t a shortage of verbal banters too.

There had been a lot of issues around the Indian team like the absence of Virat Kohli, injuries to senior players, bowled out for 36 in the second innings at Adelaide, and so on. Many former cricketers predicted that this team would be subjected to a humiliating whitewash. But in the end, the tale is reversely written.

Let’s have a look at five former cricketers who harshly criticized the Indian team before and during the series, and ended up getting a fitting reply from Rahane and co.

1. Michael Vaughan

Former England player Michael Vaughan criticized the Indian team and he said that India won’t be able to win at least a series in the tour. Unfortunately for him, India won the three-match T20I series 2-1.

Later after the first Test, the former cricketer added that India would lose the Test series 4-0. But in the very next, Rahane and men staged an excellent comeback at SCG. Indian youngsters carried out the fighting spirit and now they have clinched a series win.
