Virat Kohli celebrates historic win vs Australia with `Naagin` dance

A lot of people are saying that India won only because Australia's squad was weak, with Steve Smith and David Warner missing in it.

Virat Kohli, the best batsman in the world at the moment, would be looking to repeat his magic numbers from 2018 in 2019.

But no play was possible and India, who first toured Australia in 1947-48, celebrated a famous victory.

"I can not see Australia beating England this summer unless they assess themselves brutally", Vaughan wrote in his column for London's Telegraph newspaper. "So, having stuck to our task and executed what we wanted and gotten the result, we, as a team, feel absolutely complete now that we have done what we set out to do, not to show to anyone else but to prove ourselves that yes, we could do it and we have done it". I'm sure [Australia] will regroup as a unit, we've all gone through those phases where you figure out what needs to be done - it's just mindset. They have now, and by winning 2-1 in Australia they have made up for their 4-1 defeat in England last summer, and reaffirmed their position at No 1 in the ICC Test rankings.

Things turned out to be a bit of anti-climactic in the end as India had a fair chance of adding insult to the injury with a 3-1 victory margin as they got the home team to follow-on in their den for the first time in 30 years after scoring 622 in their only innings. Paine felt Indian batsmen stepping up and scoring runs at crucial junctures in the series is something their batsmen can learn from. This is as big, or even bigger because it is in the truest (Test) format of the game.

Australia finished this series without a single hundred in four Tests.

'In Perth, I thought we played a very good game of cricket but when we went to Melbourne and Sydney, we've been outplayed in all departments'. But sometimes we get nervous as batsmen, we don't quite realise it. And you have to earn the right to score runs eventually.

Australia will resume on 0-6, still needing another 317 just to make India bat again. "They missed out in South Africa and England but this is a great opportunity to beat Australia in Australia", said Kumble.
