Australia's star opening batsman David Warner recognized that India outplayed the Australian team in their 1-2 Test series loss. The batsman congratulated the visitors for achieving a spectacular feat in Australia. A battered and bruised team India got a three-wicket win in the final Test at the Gabba. India made a remarkable comeback after their humiliating defeat at Adelaide.

The 32-year-old record at the Australia's fortress was finally breached by the injury-ravaged young Indian team. David Warner recognized that the "Men in Blue" were superior and deserve credit for the victory. The 34-year-old further stated that Australia fought hard and performed their best. They were outplayed by a better team.

The visiting nation chased down a massive total of 328 on a fifth-day pitch at the Gabba, despite Pat Cummins' four-wicket haul. The Australian pacer was among the rare stand out players for Australia. The 27-year-old picked up 21 wickets in the four Tests. Cummins was also the Man of the Series for his brilliant efforts. The Border Gavaskar series win handed over team India 430 points. The side is now leading the ICC World Test championship standings ahead of New Zealand (420) and Australia (332).

We will now focus on the tour of South Africa: Warner

The hosts had most of their top-notch players available for the series. But Australia failed to take advantage of the situation.

Warner had a very challenging series. He was injured during the ODI series but still played in Sydney. The 34-year-old did not perform well in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and only recorded 5, 13, 1 and 48 respectively. Tim Paine also faced criticism from all over the cricket fraternity and fans after the hosts conceded their second consecutive Test series to India. Australia lost 1-2 to India in the 2018-19 season as well. Warner and Australia will now focus in their tour of South Africa to stay in the contest for the WTC title. The Kangaroos are going to tour South Africa in February and March to play three Test matches.
