Very excited,” Khawaja said at the presentation ceremony.Khawaja lauded the entire team for their collective effort that led to Australia beating India in India and revealed that even after the losses in the first two games, the atmosphere in the dressing room was great.”I just played depending on the conditions. Our spinners, and our batters adapted really well and at the end of the day, it was a really good team performance. That good partnership in the third game, Finch batted beautifully, there have been tough wickets and high-scoring ones.”The batters chipped in, the bowling group chipped in, and credit to all the support staff because the atmosphere was really great even after we lost the first two games. We had a lot of fun. Even when we lost the first two games, we had a good vibe in the dressing room.”Also Read | Usman Khawaja in Kohli, de Villiers league after Delhi ODI hundredAlso Read | Rohit Sharma third fastest to reach 8000 runs in ODIsAlso Read | Virat Kohli amused after Ravindra Jadeja’s theatrical appeal in Delhi ODIFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
