The finale may have ultimately have turned out to be a damp squib but Virat Kohli's tourists utterly dominated what action there was to deservedly become the first side from the Asian sub-continent to take the honours Down Under.

Australia's two most experienced batsmen, Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh, scored one half-century apiece.

Australia then suffered the indignity of being forced to follow on at home for the first time in 30 years as Kohli twisted the knife.

The final pitch inspection proved a low-key end to India's maiden Test series win in Australia, arguably the greatest achievement of Virat Kohli's captaincy.

"That's why India won this series, their best players stood up in the big moments - when they were falling behind in a game one of their good players dragged them back into the contest, or when they were in front of the game they put their foot on us and put us out of the game like they did in Sydney and Melbourne".
