    INDIA RETAIN BORDER-GAVASKAR TROPHY | It started with Adelaide where India was shot out for 36 and then they have a couple of their crucial players missing due to injuries. To make things worse, Kohli was on paternity leave. At Melbourne, the new skipper Ajinkya Rahane stood up to the task and led from the front, playing the captain’s knock to perfection. His century helped India beat Australia by eight wickets. Then at Sydney – with a depleted unit, an inexperienced Indian side took the blows to escape with an incredible draw, equivalent to a win. Then at Brisbane, where they were depleted further, debutants Washington Sundar, T. Natarajan came up with the goods, not to forget Shardul Thakur and Cheteshwar Pujara’s contribution that laid the foundation for Pant’s match-winning knock to seal a historic series win.
