Imran Khan congratulates India on maiden Test series win in Australia

In Australia, after Ashwin had contributed to India's win in the the opening Test in Adelaide and been injured, he was replaced by equally effective spinners in Ravi Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav. The celebrations which followed on the final day's play at the SCG were nothing short of spectacular either with captain Virat Kohli leading from the front.

"This (Indian) attack was seriously good, I don't think in Australia we have given them enough credit for how relentless they are".

"The Adelaide Test, we honestly feel that we let that Test slip. Rishabh came up with it and we just joined in".

Is Virat Kohli the greatest India Test captain? With their full focus on how to decode Kohli's genius, Australian team led by an out of depth Tim Paine realised late that Pujara has struck from the "blind side" with his near ideal defensive technique and three hundreds.

And of the top 25 ranked schools at the end of this year's college football regular season, only four were not Nike-sponsored. And in all five years of the CFP format, both schools in the title game have been Nike-sponsored.

"On flat, good batting pitches, Australia really struggled as it is on those tracks that weaknesses are highlighted", Vaughan said of their performances during the India series.

Australia were without their two key batsmen - Steve Smith and David Warner - but had their frontline bowlers at their disposal throughout the four Tests. This is as big, or even bigger because it is in the truest (Test) format of the game. Back then they at least had Allan Border to show the novices how to go about the business of batting all day. The southpaw would be raring to go after being left out of the Test squad against Australia. "But the fact that what has come in the most historic series for Indian cricket is cherry on top of the cake and something that, as I said, in the 10 years that I have played is the proudest moment that I have experienced", Kohli said. Sometimes because we're so nervous as batsmen we don't quite realise it, you just want to get away quickly but in England you're not allowed to do that, so you have to bide your time, earn the right score runs eventually.

"In England we lost because the lower order often got runs against us", Shastri said.
