Kohli hails series win as his 'proudest moment'

"It's amusing, in a big series of four Tests you go back to a couple of key moments in the very first Test where we let ourselves down, or India outplayed us, and you get to the end of the series and it's really hard to take", said the wicketkeeper.

On the other hand, skipper Kohli said, "I was part of 2011 World Cup team, but I didn't have the emotion of not having been able to win a World Cup before..."

The test series between Australia and India ended very quietly today.

"But lead, with something in it, can be pretty serious, and that's what we have fired right through the series against Australia".

India's best bowler previous year and Kohli's trump card for providing him with breakthroughs, the unorthodox Kuldeep would again be very important.

The last time Australia were required to follow-on at home was in 1988 against England at the SCG, a match which also finished in a draw.

"This (Indian) attack was seriously good, I don't think in Australia we have given them enough credit for how relentless they are". We didn't work on feeling good about the things that we did well.

Australia won the second Test in Perth by 146 runs.

'It is a young bunch of guys and to have that belief to keep striving for excellence on a daily basis and to get a reward like this we definitely have to be happy'.

Virat Kohli, the captain of the team was seen enjoying the most while dancing to the rhythm of the songs. Well, too bad! We would have won, anyway, and I don't say that just for the sake of it, there are a lot of reasons to back it. We put everything on the line to win for the team.

'This is an Indian team that will jump over a cliff to win a game for their country, ' said coach Ravi Shastri.

The player of the tournament, Cheteshwar Pujara and his 521 run campaign which includes three centuries in very hard situations tops the list of factors that have led to India beating Australia in Australia.

'That's the determination and the ruthlessness, the mindset with which this team went out to play in this series.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) congratulated the team and announced a bonus of $21 400 per match for each player while the reserves will get $10 700 per match.
