After India’s 2-1 victory over Australia in Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2016-17, former Sri Lanka cricketer Kumar Sangakkara has praised Virat Kohli and co.’s consistent performance, saying they are capable of winning anywhere. India won the final match by 8 wickets on Tuesday, regaining the coveted trophy. Ajinkya Rahane captained India in the final Test, as regular captain Virat Kohli picked up an injury while fielding in the third Test and decided to stay out of the contest. With the victory, India maintain their dominance in ICC Test Rankings and registered their seventh consecutive series victories in the longest format.
Here is what Sangakkara tweeted about India’s brilliant run in Tests.
Great win by @BCCI. A perfectly balanced side and ability to exploit pitches with both pace and spin. A team capable of winning anywhere— Kumar Sangakkara (@KumarSanga2) March 28, 2017
