The final day of the enthralling encounter was washed out due to rain, thus the fourth and final Test match played between Australia and India for the Border Gavaskar trophy ended in a draw which resulted in India becoming the First Asian side to win a Test Series in Australia.
Not even a single ball was delivered, as consistent rain hampered India’s chance of defeating Australia for the third time in this series. Cheteshwar Pujara for his magical knock of 193 was declared Man of the Match and Man of the Series. Pujara on this tour had scored three test tons and had also faced a marathon amount of deliveries.
The Virat Kohli led present Indian team ended a 71-year long wait to win a Test Series Down Under. This was their 12th attempt, having drawn on three occasions while coming second 8 times. They also became the first Asian side to have won a Test Series in Australia, although Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have played 12, 6 and 1 Test series in the land of Kangaroos so far.
Having won the toss, India had elected to bat first. The quartet of Cheteshwar Pujara, Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja and Mayank Agarwal all helped India pile up a mountain total of 622. The Australians were bundled up for 300 runs after a thankless effort from young Chinaman Kuldeep Yadav. India then enforced follow-on upon Australia, however rain helped the Kangaroos to salvage a draw. The series ends 2–1 in India’s favor and now all eyes will be in the ODI format where India is again expected to dominate.
