India creat history, win first ever Test series in Australia
 
New Delhi Jan 07
India created history by winning their first ever Cricket Test series on Australian soil after beating the home team 2-1 as the fourth and final Test ended in a tame draw due to inclement weather.
India scored 622 for 7 in their first innings and then bowled out Australia for 300 thereby enforcing the follow-on.
However, persistent drizzle washed out day five thereby keeping the victory margin down to 2-1. The Hosts were still trailing by 316 runs when the match was called off.


It is the first time India managed the feat since they began touring Australia in 1947-48. Consequently, Virat Kohli became the first Indian as well as the first Asian captain to win a Test series in Australia.
India reinforced their status as the world's number one test team and retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy with the series win. Cheteshwar Pujara was declared man of the match as well as man-of-the-series.
President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated the Indian team for their win.
