Sydney (Australia): Indian cricket team registered a historic win against the Kangaroos in their soil by winning their first-ever Test series by a margin of 2-1.

Australia was still trailing by 316 runs, when the fourth and the final Test match in Sydney on Monday were called off as a draw due to rain. Indian cricket fans rejoiced and credited team work behind Indian cricket team’s historic win.

Australian captain Tim Paine, while highlighting on the loss, said his team thought they could beat India in Australia before the start of series.

However, he felt the Adelaide test was the “turning point” in the test series. Paine said his team made many mistakes in the first test match, which made India won by 31 runs.

Team’s Head Coach Ravi Shastri said the moment is bigger than the 1983 world cup win. “I will tell you how satisfying this is for me. World Cup 1983, World Championship 1985...this is as big or even bigger because this is in the truest format of the game, that is Test cricket”, Shastri said during the post match conference.
