Great memories of the ODI victory last year. Hope to see them achieve the most awaited first Test victory on the Australian soil.

Also the New Year Test in Sydney. First time we get an SCG Test.

Exciting times ahead. Hope all players and fit, firing and ready to go!

I really hope for a historic test win on Australian soil.
Won't be easy, but we pulled out out of nowhere in South Africa
