Some Learnings and Lessons Learnt from Ind vs Aus Test series i.e, Border Gavaskar Trophy 2021, wherein India won the four match test series 2-1.
Incident 1 – India Bowled out for 36 runs. Lost the first test match in 3 days at Adelaide.
1st Learning – Life hits you very hard and it feel like we are down and out and situation seems to be a nightmare and hopeless with what is happening around us. But we need to forget about past, start fresh and not let the past effect the future. We need to focus on the current scenario similar to the way where our team focused on 2nd test and won the match.
Incident 2 – Tim Paine and Ashwin sledging
2nd Learning – Sometimes it happens in life when opponents couldn’t win, they try and attack our concentration and try to divert our thinking to unnecessary issues and disturb our focus. This happened when Ashwin was batting strong, not giving away wicket and Paine sledged him . However, Ashwin stood strong and didn’t let that effect him at all.
Incident 3 – Many catches dropped
3rd Learning – Life gives many opportunities sometimes back to back and sometimes suddenly out of nowhere. This is the time we should grab those opportunities or else we may lose the game and opponents may take upper hand and win it. Many times we need to work hard to create opportunity but when we see the opportunity, its important to grab it before someone else does.
Incident 4 – Scoring runs at steady pace
4th Learning – When we have a big task in hand, its better and also easy to break into small tasks and keep achieving them. This is what happened in the match, we focused on each session of test match on last day and reached the target on the 5th day of the test match rather than worrying about big task in hand to achieve.
Incident 5 – Missing Big Players like, Kohli, Bumrah, Umesh etc
5th Learning – Do not waste time and worry about things like, we don’t have anybody to help us or we don’t have experienced players. We should focus and achieve targets with available resources. Some things in life do not improve a bit just by thinking or worrying about them and we know that its not going to happen. In such cases, instead of worrying, we need to realise, what best we can do to and how best we can do.
Incident 6 – Rishabh, Shardul, Ashwin, Sundar played their heart out
6th Learning – No matter what situation or circumstances we are in we should always give our best and be true to ourselves. This happened with our Indian players who played and gave their best. Though the situation is physically and mentally brutal our players gave their best, fighting it out and focused on the game to help India cross the line to win matches and Series ultimately.
