The 2014 Adelaide Test match between the two sides was perhaps one of the greatest ever played in Border-Gavaskar series history with both teams fighting till the very end and it was Kohli who was leading the visitors from the front.But even before the first ball was bowled, Kohli had won over the Australian crowd after he, along with coach Ravi Shastri, attended the funeral of late Aussie cricketer Phil Hughes.

Throwback to this very special and important test in our journey as the test team that we are today. Adelaide 2014 was a game filled with emotion on both sides and an amazing one for people to watch too. Although we didn’t cross the line being so close, it taught us that anything is possible if we put our mind to it because we committed to doing something which seemed very difficult to begin with but almost pulled it off. All of us committed to it. This will always remain a very important milestone in our journey as a test side. ???
But India gave a tough fight and replied with 444 runs, riding on captain Kohli’s 115 and significant contributions from Cheteshwar Pujara (73), Ajinkya Rahane (62) and Murali Vijay (53).
