Australia coach Justin Langer also was in awe of India’s performances in the Test series and how the visitors found a new hero every time they were in trouble. “Never underestimate the Indians,” he said at the post-match interview with the broadcasters. “There are 1.5 billion Indians. And if you play in that first 11, then, you are going to be really tough… I cannot compliment India enough. After the first Test match, where we got them out in 3 days for 36 runs, the fightback from them is amazing. Sometimes there are big lessons for us too. You don’t take anything for granted.”
