India creat history, win first ever Test series in Australia

BCCI
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.
