India ended a 71-year drought with their maiden Test series victory in Australia, beating the hosts 2-1 after the fourth and final match ended in a draw due to bad weather in Sydney on Monday.

India also became the first Asian team to win a Test series in Australia. Meanwhile, Virat Kohli too is now the first Indian captain to win a Test series on Australian soil.

"Firstly I want to say, I've never been more proud of a team than this one. The culture we've been able to build over the last 12 months. Our transition started here when I became the captain for the first time. Only one word to say, I'm proud. To lead these players is an honour and a privilege. They make the captain look good. Definitely deserve to enjoy this moment. By far this is my best achievement. Has to be on top of the pile," Kohli said at the post-match presentation.
