India may have retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy but there was one big positive as far as the Australian team was concerned – Pat Cummins’ bowling right through the four-match Test series.

The 27-year-old was the highest wicket-taker in the series and built pressure on the Indians each time he was brought into the attack by Australian captain Tim Paine.

Cummins has been Australia’s premier pacer for a few years now and he lived up to his reputation with a remarkable performance against India, even though his team went down 1-2 in the series.

The right-arm quick played a key role in Australia’s massive win in the first Test and followed that up with consistent performances in the remaining matches. He couldn’t get a five-for in the series but picked three four-wicket hauls.
