In what was one of the biggest achievements of all time, something termed even bigger than 1983 and 2011 World Cup success by Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli, the Indian team beat Australia 2-1 in the four-Test series, and in doing so, for the first time achieved a series win Down Under.

Joy gripped the whole country as Kohli and his men did what no other Indian could do in the past. In fact, they also became the first and only team from Asia to triumph over Australia in Australia.

Following their success, Team India was greeted to loud cheers and dance by the much famous group of supporters - Bharat Army. They swarmed the players as they returned at the team hotel, and even made a couple of players, including Kohli, dance with them.

Apart from tapping their foot with the Bharat Army, the Indian team also broke into an impromptu dance during their victory lap in Sydney. Rishabh Pant led the way with the dance moves, but he made India's No.3 join in the act, though quite unsuccessfully, as Pujara barely managed to move his body.

Following a washout on Day Five of the final Test in Sydney, history was created and the Indian team became the first and the only Asian team to win a Test series in Australia. Kohli, as a skipper, achieved something not even the likes of Sourav Ganguly, Anil Kumble could achieve in the past.

Cheteshwar Pujara was awarded the Man of the Series for his impeccable batting display, as he scored 521 runs in just seven innings at an average of 74.42. But the other star for India throughout the four Tests was Jasprit Bumrah. The 25-year-old took a equal high 21 wickets along with Lyon, but with an average of 17, overshadowed the Aussie spinner.
