Having led India to an incredible come-from-behind Test series triumph in Australia, Ajinkya Rahane called it a “massive, massive moment” for his players and lauded them for performing as a unit.

Bowled out for a record low score of 36 in the series-opener in Adelaide that ended in two and half days in favour of Australia, India orchestrated a memorable comeback to win the series 2-1 following their victory in the fourth and final Test in Brisbane.

“It is a massive, massive moment for us. The way we, after what happened in Adelaide, came back from Melbourne onwards – it was really good to see. It wasn’t just one or two, but every one who put an effort.

“In all the three matches, everyone contributed. It was actually very good to see,” said Rahane while addressing his teammates.

After the crushing defeat in the first Test at Adelaide, India fought back to win the second Test at Melbourne with Rahane leading from the front with a classic century.
