Cash bonuses for India heroes after Australia Test triumph

Defeat to India has left several question marks over Australia's batting, in particular, with only a two-Test series at home to Sri Lanka left in which to establish a settled a line-up - although the expected returns of Steven Smith and David Warner from ball-tampering bans would undoubtedly strengthen their Ashes credentials.

The members of the Indian cricket team had a jolly good time together along with the Bharat army post their historic win against Australia.

"The Adelaide Test, we honestly feel that we let that Test slip. Rishabh came up with it and we just joined in".

For some Australians the series will always carry an asterisk given their two best batsmen, Steve Smith and David Warner, were unavailable because of bans they received for the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa a year ago. We know we had some guys missing but we honestly felt coming into the series that in Australia in particular that we could beat India. He ended the series as the top run-getter with 521 runs at an average of 74.43 with three centuries to his name.

"That's how you win Test matches. That's why India won this series", said Paine. That's why India won this series, their best players stood up in the big moments or when they were falling behind in a game one of their good players dragged them back into the contest - or when they were in front of the game they put their foot on us and put us out of the game like they did in Sydney and Melbourne. "So they are going to learn a lot from that".

'In Perth, I thought we played a very good game of cricket but when we went to Melbourne and Sydney, we've been outplayed in all departments'. Travis was our leading run-scorer and Marcus showed in most innings that he could make it at this level. We have got some positives there. And you have to earn the right to score runs eventually. "We could have bowled out England much more cheaply, we didn't do it".

Australia have Sri Lanka as their next Test opponents before they can fully turn attention towards the World Cup in England.

"That was at the presentation, he should have padded up and gone up and they would have given him the trophy without even mentioning his name", Shastri said.

"Our bowlers at times bowled really well in this series, at times they didn't". Alongside his warning about English conditions, Kohli offered encouragement for Australia's batsmen, saying if they "believe that they can do it, it can be done, definitely". The group of bowlers we have in this team have been fantastic for quite a while now.
