India vs Australia 2018-19: Virat Kohli’s team India scripted history as they became the first team in 71 years to win a Test series on Australian soil. There was no control over their emotions as history was scripted. They danced in the ground at SCG and it did not stop there as they came to the team hotel, Indian fans were there to welcome their heroes as songs like ‘Mere Desh Ki Dharti Sona’ was being played in the background. Indian skipper showed he has got the moves as he attempted a hilarious version of the Nagin Dance as Hardik Pandya stuck to the basics. The players also gave away a few autographs as the fans were there in numbers to welcome the victorious side.
Here is the reception the triumphant Indian team got on reaching the team hotel after scripting history:
It was a ‘freeze the frame’ as the Indian team took a ‘Lap of Honour’ of the SCG with both Indian and Australian fans cheering them.
“This is history and a terrific moment for Indian cricket,” said country’s greatest opener Sunil Gavaskar.
Such was the fragility of the Australian batting, a full day’s play possibly could have been enough to win a record three Test matches in a single series in Australia had the heavens not opened up. While Australian batting was severely handicapped due to the suspensions of their premier batsmen Steve Smith and David Warner but it can take nothing away from the heady achievement of Kohli’s men, who have conquered an unchartered frontier with a lion-hearted display.
