After the Border Gavaskar Trophy concluded in India’s favor, with the hosts clinching the four-match series 2-1, Australia emerged victorious in the ODI series, winning it 2-1. Though India won the first match of the series playing at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, the Men in Blue lost the second game in Visakhapatnam and also the third game in Chennai.

While Hardik Pandya led the Indian side in the first game before regular skipper Rohit Sharma joined the squad back for the remaining two games, the visitors were under Steve Smith’s captaincy as the senior pro led the side in regular skipper Pat Cummins’ absence. Witnessing Australia’s dominating victory over India, all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin lauded Steve Smith’s leadership.

 Taking to his Twitter, he said:

“Steve Smith and captaincy is a match made in heaven.”
