Let the celebrations begin!
After the day was washed out, the celebrations began after India ended a 71-year wait to script a golden chapter in the game's history. Photo: BCCI
The fourth and final Test match at the SCG petered to a barren draw due to inclement weather but not before providing India with a 2-1 series win and the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Photo: BCCI
It is a rare first Down Under for India since Lala Amarnath's side visited the country back in 1947-48 months after independence to face Sir Don Bradman's 'Invincibles'. Photo: BCCI
Captain says thanks!
It was a 'freeze the frame' as the Indian team took a 'Lap of Honour' of the SCG with the both Indian and Australian fans cheering them. Photo: BCCI
Skipper Kohli, who has always focussed on the endeavour to make his team the best travelling side, has been finally able to walk the talk after the disappointments in South Africa and England. Photo: BCCI
Crazy dressing room
If this victory is put into perspective with some of Indian cricket's famous away series wins, it will be right up there both in terms of novelty as well as quality. Photo: BCCI
Heroes of India's 'first'
While skipper Kohli hit the best hundred of the series in terms of sheer class on a difficult Perth Stadium track, the unflappable Pujara and the unconventional Jasprit Bumrah (21 wickets) were the heroes of the memorable 'first'. Photo: BCCI
Cutting edge pace department
Whether it was the awkward angles along created by Bumrah along with some incisive movements, Mohammed Shami getting it to rip on occasions, Ishant Sharma hitting the right length over after over, India never had it so good in terms of consistency in overseas conditions. Photo: BCCI
For Kohli, this series was more about his leadership choices rather than his insane batting efforts which was comparatively muted by his lofty standards. Photo: ICC
While India now gear up to switch format, Kohli's biggest takeaway will be the confidence before they start their perparations for the ODI World Cup. Photo: ICC
