In Pics: Anushka Sharma Joins Team India’s Victory Celebrations

India celebrated an historic test series victory in Australia after the weather-affected fourth match at the Sydney Cricket Ground finished in a draw.

Captain Virat Kohli's team entered the final day with hopes of a 3-1 series victory and also its first win at the SCG since 1978, but rain meant there was no play on Monday and umpires called it off early. The draw gave India a 2-1 series win.

"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."

Take a look at some of the pictures from the team’s post-match celebrations.
