During the Australia tour of India 2023, 4 Tests and 3 ODI matches will be played between February 9 to March 22.

Jadeja, who returned the team after a lengthy knee injury, took five wickets in the first innings, while also scoring a half-century. The impressive performance from Rohit Sharma, Jadeja and Axar Patel boost India’s score to 400 in their first inning.

Ashwin, on the other hand, took his 31st five-wicket haul as India bowled out Australia for a paltry total of 91. With the win, India took a 1-0 lead in the four-match series.

After the conclusion of the match, Ashwin heaped praise on Jadeja for his all-round exploits, saying that he is “thankful” to have a bowling partner like the 34-year-old.

“Massive help is an understatement. He’s been in phenomenal form. The way he’s batted, the way he’s bowled and we don’t have to talk about how well he moves in the field. He’s been a fantastic cricketer.

I’m so thankful to have a partner like him to be bowling alongside me and Axar is no ordinary bowler either. We’ve got a very good set of spinners and all of us who can bat,” Ashwin said after the match.

India on the other hand won the first match and leads the 4-match Tests series by 1-0. The second Test match will be played on February 17 in Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi.
