The series saw Hyderabad's Mohammad Siraj become the leading wicket-taker for India and picked up 13 wickets in three matches. Shardul and Washington played a key role in batting and bowling in the final test in Brisbane. The team also managed to end Australia's 32-year-old unbeaten run at the Gabba. The same match also saw Natarajan pick three wickets for 78 runs in the first innings, helping the team achieve some exceptional results.
