Two years after creating history on the Australian soil, Team India returned there with a sole aim of retaining the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. The visiting side made a horror start to the Test series as they were bowled out for 36 in the second innings of the pink-ball Test.
After a defeat in the opening Test, Team India further suffered a couple of blows. Skipper Virat Kohli returned home to be with his wife for the birth of their first child while Mohammed Shami was ruled out of the series due to an injury.
Unperturbed by the absence of key players right throughout the series, the Ajinkya Rahane-led side pulled off a heist and won the series 2-1. Rahane led the team from the front and scored a match-winning century in the Boxing Day Test. The third Test ended in a miraculous draw while India won the fourth Test in a dramatic manner.
The world has been praising Team India for its historic effort on the Australian soil and WWE Hall of Famer, Triple H, has also heaped praise on Team India. In conservation with Hindustan Times, Triple H lauded India and said that they pulled off a WWE-scripted level of a comeback against Australia.
“I did follow it but unfortunately did not get to see it in real-time due to to the time difference. India pulling off a WWE-scripted level of comeback and winning is amazing. It’s awesome, so proud of everybody there, » he told Hindustan Times.
Further, ‘The Game’ also said that he will invite Team India to watch and be a part of Superstar Spectacle. It is a two-hour special show for the Indian audience, which will feature number of Indian-origin superstars. The event will be televised on 26th January.
« I will say this, I know everybody is still celebrating there, I will invite the team personally. Come, watch and be a part of the Superstar Spectacle and continue the celebrations. We would like to celebrate with you. If they want to a part of that, give us a call, will love to make that happen. I am incredibly proud of it, what a comeback, and congratulations,” Triple H added.
WWE has a big fan base in India and has organised number of events here. At present, there are nearly 10 Indian-origin superstars on the WWE’s roster.
Talking of Team India, the Indian players are enjoying the much-needed rest before the England series. The full-fledged series will kick off on February 5, with the opening Test to be played in Tamil Nadu.
