Cricket Australia has congratulated the Australian men’s Test team on its performance during the Qantas Tour of India.

The Chairman of Cricket Australia, David Peever, said, “As the team arrives home over the next two days, they will find that all of Australia is immensely proud of their efforts. Some gave them little chance of testing the world’s number one team, but instead showed resilience, adaptability and a determination to overcome the difficulties they have experienced in recent years in such conditions.”

“They came very close to winning the series, but did achieve Australia’s first Test win in India since 2004.

“There were many fine individual performances, but none better than those of the captain. Steve showed yet again what an outstanding leader he is becoming, and his honesty and gracious comments at the end demonstrated the qualities that Australians expect from their Test captain.

“Credit must also be given to the Bupa Support Team staff, who helped the squad prepare so well in Dubai, and then guided them through the lengthy visit.

“It was a tough series, as we expected and indeed welcome from our Indian hosts. Cricket at this level is highly competitive, and it is incumbent on all involved, players and administrators, to honour the protocols and standards of behaviour that underpin the spirit of cricket.

“As a result of this series, and the series just completed in New Zealand, Australia has finished as the number 3 ranked Test team for this international season.

“We aspire to be number 1 in all formats, so while the team’s efforts in India, and across the summer following the disappointment of the first two Tests against South Africa, represent a significant improvement, we all know that we must continue to learn and develop our skills. We want to win major trophies, like the Ashes and the Border Gavaskar, not just at home but overseas as well. Our players will now take a well-earned break, before we look forward to the ICC Champions Trophy in England,” concluded Mr Peever.
