Team India is currently on a tour of Australia. The two teams are playing a four-Test Border-Gavaskar series. The series is tied at 1-1. India won the second Test of the series by eight wickets at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, the most memorable win in the history of Indian cricket. Former wicketkeeper-batsman Farooq Engineer believed that winning Tests in Melbourne was as big as winning the 1983 and 2011 World Cup finals.

Under Kapil Dev’s captaincy, India won the World Cup for the first time, beating the West Indies in the 1983 World Cup final in England. In 2011, 26 years later, under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, India defeated Sri Lanka at the Wankhede Stadium to become world champions for the second time. “It was a great way to get back,” the engineer said in an interview with Sportskira. It was like India’s World Cup win at the Oval and the 1971 Test win.
Engineer played 446 Tests and 5 ODIs for India between 1961 and 1975. He also praised acting captain Ajinkya Rahane. Who led the team brilliantly in the absence of Virat Kohli. Rahane scored the 12th Test century of his career in Melbourne. The engineer told Rahane, ‘Great recovery for our boys in Australia. I salute Ajinkya Rahane and the whole team. Rahane leads from the front. He showed that if I can, you can too. He is from Shivaji Park, Mumbai, he is a fighter. I have always been his fan. ‘
Williamson was surprised to surpass Kohli and Smith in the Test rankings
He added, ‘Yes, we were all out for 3 36 runs. The Australian bowlers bowled with perfect line and length, they were waiting for our batsmen to make mistakes and we kept making mistakes. In the first Test match played in Adelaide, Team India lost by 7 wickets. In the second innings of the match, Team India was able to score only 336 runs and this is their lowest score in Test cricket.
