India vs Australia: Watch Virat Kohli's nagin dance as India celebrates win

India vs Australia: Watch Virat Kohli's nagin dance as India celebrates win

Consequently, Virat Kohli became the first Indian as well as the first Asian captain to win a Test series in Australia. Australia won in Perth.

"The way the bowlers have dictated and dominated, not here but also in England and South Africa, it's something I haven't seen before", said Kohli. "For Marcus and Travis to show they have got the game to make runs against the best attack in the world is a real positive". It's at the top of the pile.

Paine suggested it was far too early to look at Australia's push for their first series win in England since 2001.

Indian captain Virat Kohli says he's surprised with the magnitude of criticism aimed at Australian paceman Mitchell Starc.

It was for the first time in over 130 years that no Australian batsman scored a ton in a Test series of comprising four matches at home.

The final Test between the two sides ended in a draw in Leicester, with Anil Kumble smashing his memorable maiden Test century in his 118th Test.

'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.

"We need to keep working hard".

"Cricket's a amusing game, we know it can turn really quickly so we've got to keep putting our best foot forward and when it turns, take those opportunities".

A 2-1 series defeat has been tough for the host nation but just as India's sides of the 1990s credited much of their hardening up through punishing tours of Australia, Paine wants this hurt to have a similar steeling effect.

The victory was built on Cheteshwar Pujara's first innings 123 and his second innings 71, while wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant took a world record-equalling 11 catches.

Agar, who was a part of the three-match series that Australia lost, didn't get a chance to feature in the eleven in any of the games.

It was a huge relief for the home side, having not won a Test since the ball-tampering "sandpapergate" scandal that rocked global cricket last March. "Sometimes that was due to the pressure they were put under by the Indian batsmen".

India's bowling coach Bharat Arun said the successful strategy stemmed from mistakes made past year in Tests against South Africa and England. "They are two examples of guys who might not have played any Test cricket at this stage", he said.

"I think our bowlers at times bowled really well in this series, at times they didn't", Payne said.

The tourists, led by magnificent series from batting rock Cheteshwar Pujara and superb slinger Jasprit Bumrah, achieved it in clinical fashion to expose the enormous void left by Steve Smith and David Warner's suspensions and raise questions about the potency of Australia's attack.

That all but destroyed home hopes of a face-saving victory and India's spinners then got to work to drive home the advantage in the field against an Australia side that failed to muster a single century over the series.
