Earlier, Virat Kohli-led Indian team entered the annals of history on Monday by winning their first-ever Test series in Australia.
After the visiting team won the Adelaide and Melbourne Tests, the fourth and final Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) here ended in a draw as no play was possible on the last day due to continuous downpour. India clinched the series 2-1.
Cheteshwar Pujara was the main force behind India's historic series win as the Saurashtra batsman accumulated 521 runs, averaging 74.43 and in the process slamming three tons. Kohli chipped in with 282 runs.
