GK: Do you believe the set-up, the players, the quality that is available that India are now in a phase where they can dominate Test cricket home and away going forward?

AK: Yeah, I believe that. Even two years ago. I said the same thing. I felt that this team certainly has the ability to dominate the world cricket for the next five or six years. Because the kind of quality that you have especially with the bowling attack. I mean you always look at the bowling attack. You look at the top three, top four batsmen. If you have that quality and then with Rishabh Pant coming in as a batsman who can change the complexion of the game with his batting and as a young talent in the middle. You have everything in this squad, you have an all-rounder in Hardik Pandya, you have three spinners, world-class spinners all three different and then you have Pujara, Virat. Ajinkya was a bit of a disappointment in the series. He had some wonderful starts, couldn't convert it, the openers again with Mayank Agarwal and Prithvi Shaw. The two youngsters have shown a lot of ability, KL Rahul I am sure will come back into form and then you have Rohit Sharma and the battery of fast bowlers. I mean India had never had such a buffet of fast bowlers to choose from and there are people who still are waiting in the wings. So yes, considering all of these, I think India is now there to start dominating world cricket for the next whatever years. Because after Australia you have all the home matches but South Africa and England were quite challenging for India. So, I like I mentioned whatever transpired there they have been able to put that behind and not commit the same mistakes in Australia and that's why they were successful.
