India secures landmark Test series win in Australia

Indian Cricket Team Scripts History, Registers First Ever Test Series Win in Australia.

Fresh from their 2-1 series defeat of Australia this summer, India will return to defend the Border Gavaskar trophy in just two summers time as part of a reworked ICC Future Tours Program.

Shastri praised his skipper Virat Kohli's unrivalled passion after his nation's first Test cricket series victory in Australia.

A lot of people are saying that India won only because Australia's squad was weak, with Steve Smith and David Warner missing in it.

"It's a proud moment".

"But the fact that the reward has come in the most historic series for Indian cricket is the cherry on the top of the cake".

German politicians, celebs and rappers amongst victims of giant email hack
Though the Twitter account was suspended, the hacker provided multiple back-up links for people to download the breached files. German politicians' private data has been leaked on Twitter, the media are reporting this Friday morning.

Things turned out to be a bit of anti-climactic in the end as India had a fair chance of adding insult to the injury with a 3-1 victory margin as they got the home team to follow-on in their den for the first time in 30 years after scoring 622 in their only innings.

"This (Indian) attack was seriously good, don't think in Australia we've given them enough credit for how relentless - the three quicks bowl pretty good pace, they are relentless in pressure, so it was hard work batting against their attack for seasoned Test players". It was a "freeze the frame" as the Indian team took a "Lap of Honour" of the SCG with the both Indian and Australian fans cheering them.

For some Australians the series will always carry an asterisk given their two best batsmen, Steve Smith and David Warner, were unavailable because of bans they received for the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa previous year. We have got some positives there. Paine said senior batsmen like Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh did not make their presence felt, even though he just stopped short of blaming them for the team's failure.

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

Virat Kohli, the captain of the team was seen enjoying the most while dancing to the rhythm of the songs.
