Australia in India 2016-17

The season of Kohli, and all his men

Thirteen Tests, ten wins, four trophies. This is the story of India's historic home season, and the players that made it happen

Steven Smith walks back after being bowled

India v Australia, 4th Test, Dharamsala, 3rd day

Australia's session of horror and melancholy

Australia had come to India well-prepared, and had competed for three-and-a-half Tests, but the middle session of the third day disrupted all their diligence

Nathan Lyon in his delivery stride

India v Australia, 4th Test, Dharamsala, 2nd day

Lyon's blockbuster start to hard scrap

Nathan Lyon claimed 5 for 34 on Test debut in Galle in 2011 but since then he has had to grind for every bit of success

Steven Smith struck his third century of the series

India v Australia, 4th Test, Dharamsala, 1st day

Clear daylight between Steven Smith and the rest

Steven Smith's batting form has been so sublime that every time he goes out to bat, he exemplifies why he is a cut above the rest

Shaun Marsh and Peter Handscomb run between the wickets

India v Australia, 3rd Test, Ranchi, 5th day

Australia's un-Australian methods pay off

Australia aren't quite equipped to save Tests in Asia, but Shaun Marsh and Peter Handscomb pulled off an improbable result in Ranchi

Steve O'Keefe and Steven Smith have a chat

Pat Cummins was menacing with the short ball

India v Australia, 3rd Test, Ranchi, 3rd day

Cummins, the fast bowler who flies

The 23-year old has had an injury-ravaged career. He came to India with little preparation but emerged the leader of Australia's attack on a pitch that had nothing for him

Steven Smith carves one through point

India v Australia, 3rd Test, Ranchi, 2nd day

Australia's battle of patience

Despite Steven Smith's remarkable ton, despite Glenn Maxwell's barely believable knock, despite having 451 on the board, it seems the Ranchi Test is still in the balance for Australia

Glenn Maxwell struck his maiden Test half-century

India v Australia, 3rd Test, Ranchi, 1st day

The weirdness of Maxwell's proper Test innings

On a pitch most suited for him on this tour, David Warner, the T20-specialist-turned-Test star, got his eye in and then played a wasteful shot. The grown-up knock came from another T20 specialist, instead: Glenn Maxwell

Ricky Ponting restrains Virat Kohli

Australia in India 2016-17

Kohli the Indian Ricky Ponting?

The Australian team learnt its cricket watching an angry, winning Ricky Ponting lead the side. So did Virat Kohli. There isn't all that great a difference between them
