India wins first-ever cricket test series in Australia

India wins first-ever cricket test series in Australia

India won their first ever Test series in Australia after the 4th and final match at the Sydney Cricket Ground ended in a draw following three rain-truncated days on 6 Jan 2019.

India have toured Australia since 1947 but never before managed to win a series in the country. But it all changed this time as Virat Kohli led his side to 2-1 series victory after winning the first Test in Adelaide and the third Test in Melbourne.

Highlights of the Series

Virat Kohli became the first Indian as well as the first Asian captain to win a Test series in Australia.

Chettswaer Pujara was the highest scorer of the 4th test as he scored 193 runs.

Rishab Pant scored unbeaten 159 in just 202 balls and became the first wicket-keeper to score a century in Australia.

It is the first ever series victory of India over Australia in Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
