It’s double happiness for Rohit Sharma in the span of few days. First, he has been included in the Test squad and then got decent scores to his name and also blessed with a baby girl. Meanwhile, he will also go down into the record books as the member of the first-ever Indian squad that won a Test series against Australia in Australia.

As it happened:
Coming to the series review, it was all started with Cheteshwar Pujara’s fantabulous century when none of the batsmen showed an application in the middle. His sublime century helped Indian bowlers to attack Australians batsmen and start the series on a positive note.
In the second Test, it was Indian skipper Virat Kohli who scored a century but that was not enough for India to get close to the home team. Nathan Lyon the man of the match troubled the Indian bowlers throughout the match and ended up picking eight wickets.
However, Indians once again displayed top-class cricket in the Third Test when they outplayed Australians in all sections of the game. It was the game, which ensured Border-Gavaskar trophy to stay with Indians, as they won it when Australians toured India.
Coming into this fourth Test, much like day 4, day 5 morning also began with similar dark clouds as seen throughout Sunday. Right at the supposed start of play, rain arrived to prevent any possibility of cricket happening at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Hence, the match was called off at 2.30 pm local time, with no possibility of further play.
