Virat Kohli celebrates historic win vs Australia with `Naagin` dance

Australian cricket's unluckiest batsmen amid current dearth of quality Test options

India make history, win first-ever series in Australia; ends 70-yr-old jinx

India travel to the West Indies later this year but it's missions in New Zealand next year and back in Australia in two seasons time which will show whether this success was a one-off or a sign of things to come.

"I want to give a special mention to Pujara, he's been outstanding", Kohli said.

India scripted history winning their first ever series on Australian soil beating the home team 2-1 after the fourth and final Test ended in a tame draw due to inclement weather.

"On flat, good batting pitches, Australia really struggled as it is on those tracks that weaknesses are highlighted", Vaughan said of their performances during the India series.

In Australia however, it was a near flawless team effort from India, especially the bowling unit which has set it up for its batsmen for the better part of past year. However, Ravi Shastri, who was very excited to answer it, took over the mic from Virat Kohli and revealed his inner voice.

"In the 10 years that I have played, it is the proudest moment that I have experienced and we're so happy for the whole team". In 2015, with Smith and Warner in the side, they conceded the urn after four Tests, having been dismissed for 136 at Edgbaston and 60 - an innings that lasted just 18.3 overs - at Trent Bridge. Paine said senior batsmen like Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh did not make their presence felt, even though he just stopped short of blaming them for the team's failure. "You can see how simple he is", Kohli added. We put everything on the line to win for the team.

No Australia player managed to score a century in the series, while India managed five - three of those coming from Cheteshwar Pujara, who scored 521 runs.

"And that's the determination, that's the ruthlessness, that's the mindset with which this team went to play in this series".

"This team now has an identity to look at any other Indian team from the past in the eye without being intimidated and say 'We play proper test match cricket". "You did, we did too but without being intimidated".
