Sydney: Australian captain Michael Clarke feels a "team-first orientation of sustained pressure and sacrifice" led to his side's thumping triumph over India in the just-concluded Test series.
Australia whitewashed India 4-0 with just one Test going the full distance of five days. Clarke said the performance was a result of intense preparations.
"There has been no magic formula for our sustained success against India. One simple word sums up the reason why we dominated a series against some of the best players in the world - preparation," Clarke wrote in his column for 'The Daily Telegraph'.
