One for the history books! Virat Kohli’s Indian Cricket Team became the first team from the country to seal a Test series win in Australia on Monday after the fourth match in Sydney ended in a draw.

Opting to bat in the final Test, India took a commanding position as Cheteshwar Pujara and stumper Rishabh Pant's scintillating 193 and 159-run knocks guided India to a massive 622/7 in their first innings. India then rode chinaman Kuldeep Yadav's fifer to bundle out the home side on 300 runs before enforcing a follow-on.

Rain on the final two days, however, ensured the game finished in a draw but the result was enough for India to win the series and retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

Not many fans left in the stands when play was called off on Day 5 but that didn't damped the spirits of the visiting team who stepped out on the field to wave to the leftover crowd.

There was also a special surprise the team had in store - a new victory dance! Virat Kohli kicked-off the move and the team followed. However, there was one member of the squad who clearly was out of practice! Cheteshwar Pujara, the Man of the Series, was caught on camera being encouraged by his young team-mates to give the move a go.

‘It felt good, it was easy, but Pujara couldn't even do that,’ Virat Kohli said after the match in the press conference, jokingly taking a dig at the player who was most instrumental in India winning the series.
