Sydney: Australia captain Michael Clarke said on Friday that the philosophy of always putting the team first was key in the innings and 68 runs win over India in the second Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on Friday.
"We have always put the team first. I never thought about any milestone while declaring the innings yesterday. The only thing that I had in my mind was that India have a great batting line-up and we needed time to bowl them out," said the local boy, who was the Man of the Match with an unbeaten 329 at his home ground that was hosting its 100th Test.
Australia declared their first innings at 659 for four after a landmark triple century by Clarke. India made 191 in the first innings and were bowled out for 400 in their second shortly after tea on the fourth day of the second Test.
