India make history after soggy Sydney Test washed out

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". "This is the best Indian side I have been part of. This is where the transition began and to win four years later is special". Just one word to say, "proud", to lead this team and it's an honour and privilege.

"They make a captain look good to be honest".

Australia's batsmen went through the campaign without scoring a century, the first time this has happened at home in a series of four or more Tests since 1882-83.

Batting for 31 hours and right minutes in the four Tests, Pujara swept away 521 runs and tons of records during the Border-Gavaskar series.

"It's been a hard-fought series and they deserve to take home the trophy".

Continuing on the series victory and the satisfaction of it, Shastri said that this is bigger than anything he has ever achieved.

"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".

In Australia however, it was a near flawless team effort from India, especially the bowling unit which has set it up for its batsmen for the better part of a year ago.

However it was their batting that let them down and a one piece of statistic will scare the die-hard Aussie fans.

Wet weather and bad light meant only 25.2 overs were possible on day four but it was more than enough play for India to enhance their standing in a contest they had controlled from the moment Kohli called correctly at the toss. Leave alone a three-figure score, none of the Australian batsman could even cross the 80-run barrier, something that legends like Ricky Ponting, Shane Warne, Mike Hussey, Ian Chappell found hard to fathom. While young Prithvi Shaw missed out due to an ankle injury, Mayank Agarwal made most of his chances after an eternal wait for the India cap with two half centuries. We know there are guys outside of this group who want to come in.
