"It's a proud moment".

In 28 matches played against Australia, Kohli has notched up 1182 runs at an average of 51.39 with 5 hundreds and 5 half centuries.

"We have to tip our hat to India, we know how tough it is to win in Australia so congrats to Virat and (coach) Ravi (Shastri) because it's a huge achievement", said Australia captain Tim Paine.

The members of the Indian cricket team had a jolly good time together along with the Bharat army post their historic win against Australia.

The Indian side won the first Test at Adelaide by 31 runs and last week's Boxing Day Test in Melbourne by 137 runs to retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. "So, having stuck to our task and executed what we wanted and gotten the result, we, as a team, feel absolutely complete now that we have done what we set out to do, not to show to anyone else but to prove ourselves that yes, we could do it and we have done it". "Rishabh came up with it and we just joined in". But Indian spinner Kuldeep Yadav still had time to take his second five-wicket haul in Tests as India rattled through Australia's batting line-up.

The Australians had just one lbw dismissal in the entire India series, he said, indicating there were not enough deliveries directed at the stumps. The southpaw would be raring to go after being left out of the Test squad against Australia.

"It felt good, it was very easy, but Pujara couldn't even do that", Kohli said with a smile. Sometimes that was due to the pressure they were put under by the Indian batsmen. Leave alone a three-figure score, none of the Australian batsman could even cross the 80-run barrier, something that legends like Ricky Ponting, Shane Warne, Mike Hussey, Ian Chappell found hard to fathom.

"It's ideal if you have a team where you can keep going with the same XI, but at the moment in Australia we probably do need to chop and change occasionally to get the best combination of players". "They missed out in South Africa and England but this is a great opportunity to beat Australia in Australia", said Kumble.
