India celebrated a historic Test series victory at the Sydney Cricket Ground completed in a draw It is the first time India have managed the feat since they began touring Australia in 1947-48.
Virat Kohli’s group entered the last day keeping in mind the desire of a 3-1 arrangement triumph and a first win at the SCG since 1978, however rain implied there was no play on Monday and umpires canceled the match early. The draw gave India a 2-1 arrangement win and broke a 71-year cycle of unsuccessful visits Down Under.
“A very proud moment,” Kohli said. “More so because for the last 12 months we understand what we have gone through as a team, we understand the kind of cricket we have been able to play.
“But the fact that the reward has come in the most historic series for Indian cricket is the cherry on the top of the cake.”
Ravi Shastri credited his captain and said “He started his journey four or five years ago in Australia (as a captain) and he’s been around the globe captaining the side. No one plays test match cricket with more passion than he does.
”This team now has an identity to look at any other Indian team from the past in the eye” and say “We play proper test match cricket. You did and we do too, without being intimidated.”
