Team India members awarded bonus after Australia series win

India captain Virat Kohli termed his team’s historic 2-1 series win on Australia soil as his “biggest achievement” which will give the current team a “different identity”

Besides, the coaches will be given Rs 25 lakh. It is the first time that the Indian team has won a Test series Down Under and the happiness on the captain Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri's gave it all away. Members of the Indian support staff will be paid bonuses equivalent to the pro-rata salary/professional fee. Both Kohli and Shastri said that the Test series win in Australia was a more significant moment for them than the World Cup-winning moment.

Their 2-1 triumph achieved what no other Indian side has managed since they started touring to Australia in 1947-48, with the foundations for success laid not in the first Test at Adelaide but on their tour of South Africa previous year. The Border-Gavaskar trophy proudly sits with India now led by Virat Kohli.

"If anyone tells me that this Australian attack is, you know, not quite there, put your pads on and go and play them, you will find out".

Virat Kohli had hinted at a long string of celebrations for the team after the match and the jubilant sportsman has already begun by indulging in some food and fun with Anushka Sharma and his friends in Australia. Only one word to say, I'm proud. "It is in Test cricket, which is meant to be the toughest", Shastri said. Now, we came across a few pictures of Anushka and Virat, where they are seen celebrating the win with a cake cut.

Australia were still 316 in arrears in Sydney when the match was called off due to rain on day five, leaving India with a 2-1 triumph after wins in Adelaide and Melbourne. The culture we've been able to build over the last 12 months.
