Having failed twice before at winning here made this series all the more sweeter, Kohli said.
Ultimately, it was the Sydney weather that saved Australia from a 3-1 humiliation with no play possible after tea on day four, when they had mustered up six runs without loss in their second innings.
"Other captains could have different personalities, but Virat is someone who is in your face and it rubs off on all the youngsters who are watching the game in India, ' Shastri said".
But no play was possible and India, who first toured Australia in 1947-48, celebrated a famous victory.
'In the 10 years that I have played, it is the proudest moment that I have experienced and we're so happy for the whole team.
"The Adelaide Test, we honestly feel that we let that Test slip". "We thought we had a number of opportunities during that Test to go well ahead of the game and when those key moments came up India outplayed us to be honest". The 30-year-old was nothing short of brilliant with the bat in hand and was instrumental in India clinching the four-Test series 2-1. Paine felt Indian batsmen stepping up and scoring runs at crucial junctures in the series is something their batsmen can learn from.
Or have they just come up against an exceptional opponent?
That all but destroyed home hopes of a face-saving victory and India's spinners then got to work to drive home the advantage in the field against an Australia side that failed to muster a single century over the series. "So they are going to learn a lot from that". The southpaw would be raring to go after being left out of the Test squad against Australia. But sometimes we get nervous as batsmen, we don't quite realise it.
"The rest of us did not score enough runs, so to put that on Khawaja and Marsh is probably a little bit harsh".
"As a batsman you just need to get used to pace and bounce (in Australia). They missed out in South Africa and England but this is a great opportunity to beat Australia in Australia", said Kumble.
