The Indian cricket team on Sunday beat Australia by 137 runs in the third Test against Australia in Melbourne, and in doing so, joined an elite list of teams to have managed to record 150 wins in Test cricket.

India managed to achieve this historic achievement in its 532nd match and became just the fifth nation to reach the landmark. The other four teams in the list are Australia, West Indies, South Africa and England.

Australia lead the list with 384 wins in 817 matches, followed by England, who have 364 wins in 1007 matches. West Indies are the third most successful team in the Test history, having won 171 out of their 539 matches. They are followed by South Africa, who have 162 wins in 428 matches. And now, India has joined the list.

Virat Kohli took the honors of being the Indian skipper to lead India to its 150th Test win, as he brilliantly maneuvered his team in the third Test against Australia. With the series tied at 1-1, India put in a clinical display to make sure they have a stellar chance of their first ever Test series win Down Under.

Spearheaded by Jasprit Bumrah with the ball, who took nine wickets in the course of the match, India's all-round display was too hot to handle for the hosts, who fell well short despite a stellar all-round display by Pat Cummins.
