Mitchell Marsh has struggled to nail down a spot in the Australian Test side

Mitchell Marsh has struggled to nail down a spot in the Australian Test side

By far, this is my biggest achievement. "Has to be on top of the pile", he said.

Commenting on how this ranks with the 2011 World Cup win, Kohli said: "When we won the World Cup, I was a young player". I saw the others getting emotional. "The series win will give us a different identity". "What we've been able to achieve is something to be really proud of", Kohli said at the post-match presentation ceremony.

It was at Sydney that Kohli was annointed with permanent Test captaincy and it is at the very ground that he created an epic chapter in Indian cricket history.

The finale may have ultimately have turned out to be a damp squib but Virat Kohli's tourists utterly dominated what action there was to deservedly become the first side from the Asian sub-continent to take the honours Down Under. "Firstly I want to say, I've never been more proud of a team than this one". They make the captain look good. Definitely deserve to enjoy this moment.

Aside from man-of-the-series Pujara, a big part of their success in Australia has been executing their bowling plans to deprive the Australian batsmen of playing their shots.

The bowling attack has performed through the year and Kohli got another opportunity to laud their efforts.

"We knew once the batsmen score, our bowlers are lethal". And not just this one, the previous two tours as well. I've not seen happen in Indian cricket.

California woman arrested after biting jogger who pepper-sprayed her dog
A jogger was attacked by a dog in a California park, but police say it was the dog's owner who left bite marks on her arm. Nineteen-year-old Alma Cadwalader of Oakland was arrested Friday by police with the East Bay Regional Park District .

"Here we stand with the most outstanding result we can think of", he said. With the win in Australia, Kohli now has won 4 series as captain away from home.

"We made mistakes which we didn't make in this series".

"The group of bowlers we have in this team have been fantastic for quite a while now".

By this, he meant Indian sides would no longer fail to believe they can put their best cricketing foot forward overseas. "That's something that we spoke about, just wanted to go back to basics, not be flamboyant".

"Australia are always going to be competitive".

Australia were reduced to 236-6 at stumps on day three when bad light had stopped play, and they were bowled out for 300 runs in their first innings on day four, when Kuldeep Yadav (5-99) picked his second five-wicket haul in Test cricket.

India got the series off to the best possible start by winning the tight opening Test in Adelaide by 31 runs on the fifth day - their first Test win in Australia for a decade. Crowds have been outstanding. We didn't work on feeling good about the things that we did well.
