India Vs Australia: India’s First Ever Test Series Win in Australia
India won the first-ever Test series in Australia by a margin of 2-1. Australia is still trailing by 316 runs when the match was called off as a draw.
This victory was achieved after 71 years when India won in Adelaide and Melbourne. It is the first time India won since they began touring Australia in 1947-48.
Virat Kohli became the first Indian and the first Asian captain as well to win a Test series in Australia.
Australia suffered as only four overs of their second innings were possible, with Marcus Harris not out two and Usman Khawaja unbeaten on four before the match was called off.
Kohli said that he never felt this proud before about the team. "The boys make the captain look good. By far, this is my biggest achievement. It's at the top of the pile”, he added.
Tim Paine paid tribute to India saying "Have to tip our hat to India, we know how tough it is to win in Australia so congrats to Virat and (coach) Ravi (Shastri) because it's a huge achievement."
