Indian cricket team's celebratory dance at the SCG

The Virat Kohli-led side created history on Monday by sealing India's first-ever Test series win in Australia by 2-1 after the rain-marred fourth and the final Test concluded in a draw at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).

India had ripped through the Australian tail in Sydney on a shortened day four, when bad light and rain allowed only around 100 minutes of play, bowling the hosts out for 300 in reply to their own ominous 622 for seven declared.

Agar, who was a part of the three-match series that Australia lost, didn't get a chance to feature in the eleven in any of the games.

"Cricket's a amusing game, we know it can turn really quickly so we've got to keep putting our best foot forward and when it turns, take those opportunities".

"... That's what I don't get with the criticism he's getting ... he's just down on confidence a little bit and I think sometimes people just forget he's a bloke who is trying his best".

"I want to say I've never been more proud to be part of a team than this one here". "For some of the guys in their third, fourth Test maybe it's hard to look and say "I haven't scored any hundreds" but Marcus (Harris) and Travis (Head) showed, and Marnus (Labuschagne) in the first innings, that they can score runs at Test cricket".

Kohli's team showed huge grit throughout the series and as the captain had alluded to before traveling to Australia, his side won the crucial moments in the series. "They've got an opportunity through an unusual situation and I thought both those guys acquitted themselves really well".

President Trump says he "essentially" fired General Mattis
Mattis' public resignation could also make Senate confirmation perilous for any hand-picked successor. " What's he done for me? ". Lieutenant Colonel Joe Buccino, Shanahan's spokesman, said he had recused himself from any matters involving Boeing.

The win follows dejecting losses in South Africa and England, where India challenged but were found out as the series wore on. We all know MSD (MS Dhoni) is not going to play after the ICC World Cup in June-July. With such a series-defining performance, he has put an end to all the questions raised about his ability as a batsman and his place in the Indian team.

"They didn't have their absolute best series but it's not easy at this level".

And us? We'll know more after the upcoming two-Test series against Sri Lanka, which for the record is the fifth versus sixth battle on current Test rankings.

Meanwhile, Australian captain Tim Paine was magnanimous in defeat.

'You can see that hunger and that passion to win for India. "We know how hard it is to win overseas, first time it's ever been done, so well done to those guys", he said. "Looking back now, if we had won that Test, win Perth, outplayed in Melbourne, then a washout (in Sydney), it could have been 2-1 the other way", he said. In the four Tests, he scored a total of 521 runs at an average of 74.43.

"I think for me the first 100 was special". 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. "At times they bowled really well in this series and at times they didn't", he acknowledged.

As mentioned, that's pretty much the story.
