Incredible Test series win: Wasim Akram praises Indian team

Islamabad: Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram has appreciated India's Test series victory in Australia and described it as 'incredible'.

"Incredible Test & series win for India have not seen a bold, brave & boisterous Asian team on a tougher tour of Australia. No adversity could stop them, frontline players injured, & won after a remarkable turn around from the depths of 36 all out, inspiring for others.kudos India," Akram tweeted.

Meanwhile, former Australia cricket captain Michael Clarke has criticised the national team's "negative" attitude in the Test against India, who have created a history by winning the Border-Gavaskar Trophy for the second consecutive time.

Following Australia's defeat, Clarke told Big Sports Breakfast as quoted by NDTV, "I thought we might have been a tad negative at certain stages throughout because we were scared to lose versus attack hard and look to win the game."

"At the end of the day, whether we lost with 20 overs left in the game or on the last ball of the game, it didn't matter. We had to win that game to win that trophy.

"I sort of feel we should have approached the first ball of that game to the last ball of that game with a bit more of that attitude," he said.

After winning comprehensively in the first Test, Tim Paine's Australia drew one and lost two of the next three matches to India to miss the opportunity to lift the trophy.

More importantly, Australia did lose to an injury-hit depleted Indian team, which was calmly led by stand-by captain Ajinkya Rahane in absence of regular skipper Virat Kohli.
