1st Test Australia vs India: India skipper Virat Kohli led India to a rare victory against Australia at Adelaide as Australia lost by 31 runs. Kohli not only celebrated like there was no tomorrow, but he also led the side brilliantly. But it seems, he is not done yet as his post after the historic win suggests. Kohli took to Twitter and posted a picture of the entire team together and captioned it as, “Good win.

Meanwhile, at the post-match presentation after the match, Kohli, speaking on how close it was, he said, “These things happen in Tests, ups and downs through a game. You need to just stay calm. Odds were stacked against them. They fought really well but we executed our plans well and got that last wicket which were intending to get. (Whether he felt the heat) I wouldn’t say I was cool as ice but you just don’t try to show it.”
The second Test starts on December 14 and the Australians have a lot of thinking to do ahead of that.
Not long back, Man of the Match Cheteshwar Pujara also took to Twitter and thanked fans for their wishes and lauded the team for the win. His post read, “It’s been a great first match at the Adelaide Oval! Thank you so much for your wishes. Really delighted with the way we played as team and put up a great fight! On to the next one now!”
Earlier, with the win, India broke a 10-year-old drought, they had last won in Australia in 2008. This was also India’s sixth Test win in Australia.
