New Delhi, 18/8: That was the 1990s, when millions of cricket fans used to turn off the TV when Sachin Tendulkar was out. Not that this gloom was only there in the 1990s. Even before Sunil Gavaskar was out, many Indian cricket fans used to leave the ground or turn off the TV. Going beyond Gavaskar-Tendulkar-Dravid, this series reaches Virat Kohli. But now there is new India. The Indian team has come out breaking its image of Oneman Army. Now every player in Virat Brigade is a match winner. Every player is a hero.
In the year 2021, we saw many times, not one or two, that when India’s star players were out of the team or were out for some reason, young and less-named players took the lead. At the beginning of the year, Australia became a victim of this quality of ours. The Indian team snatched a near-determined victory from the Kangaroos in Sydney and then slammed it in Brisbane. In this way, India got heroes like Mohammad Siraj, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Shubman Gill, Navdeep Saini, T. Natarajan from this series. The same pattern was also seen in the home series against England, when Axar Patel showed his strength.
The series of this historic battle of Indian warriors reached Lord’s and our cricketers snatched the victory from the pockets of the British and wrote their names on it. The contribution of every player of India is recorded in this victory.
