India is a country which bleeds blue. Yes, you heard that right. Though the National Sports Hockey has immense respect in the hearts of every proud Indian, it is the sport of Cricket due to which India is known for.

71 long years, 31 Test series, several captains and one dream which remained unfulfilled, our boys made the country proud as they held high the trophy Under gloomy skies and a thin sheet of rain at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Australia.


Well, India's win over Australia marked the first ever win. Between 1981 and 2004, they didn't win a single Test. So as I am currently soaking in this proud feeling of the win, let us just see some major highlights which happened during the series.

1. Rishabh Pant BABYSITS Tim Paine's kids: When Rishabh Pant came to bat, Australian Skipper Tim Paine decided to have a quick chat with him. So Tim was heard saying "Tell you what big MS is back in the one-day squad. Should get this bloke down to Hurricanes. They need a batter. Fancy that extend your Aussie holiday, beautiful town Hobart too... get him a water front apartment." He also said "Have him over for dinner. Do you babysit? I can take my wife to the movies while you watch the kids." Well, Rishabh did it so. Go check out the picture on Instagram.

2. Rishabh Pant song: "He'll hit you for a six, he'll babysit your kids, We have Rishabh Pant" are the exact words of the song Bharat Army sang for Rishabh Pant and chanted it all time during the match. He scored 159 not out as India declared at 622 for 7 on Day 2 of the fourth and final Test against Australia.

3. Family on the ground: In the history of Indian cricket, families of the players were never allowed to visit them whenever they are touring, but the current Indian cricket team captain fought for it and then we saw many beautiful ladies of our cricketers cheering for them from the stadium. Anushka Sharma, wife of Virat Kohli was seen celebrating with the captain on the cricket ground feeling even more proud.

4. Virat Kohli- the first Asian captain: Well, Virat Kohli became the first Asian captain to win a series in Australia. He has now 4 series on his name as a captain away from home. Interesting, isn't it?

5. First Asian team: Beating the Aussies isn't easy. The Indian cricket team became the first Asian team to beat the Aussies in Australia. That proud Indian feeling you get! Sigh!

6. Hardik Pandya dance: As the Bharat Army chanted the Rishabh Pant song, Hardik Pandya couldn't contain his excitement to dance a few steps on it.


7. Pujara-The Rock: Cheteshwar Pujara, the senior lad in the Cricket team scored 521 runs in just seven innings at an average of 74.42 and that includes three centuries as well. 


8. KL Rahul criticised: KL Rahul was severely criticised as he scores 2, 44, 2 and 0 in the four test series against Australia. 


9. Bowled over by Bumrah and Kuldeep: In this series, Jasprit ended with a joint-highest 21 wickets, that included a match-winning nine wickets in Melbourne. Kuldeep Yadav became the second left-arm wrist spinner to bag a five-wickets in Australia. 


10. Meri Desh Ki Dharti dance: The Indian cricket team players including Virat Kohli, Ishant Sharma, and others were welcomed with a dance on Bollywood songs. They all danced on Mere Desh Ki Dharti and it was a sight to behold! One more reason to be proud as an Indian! Bleed Blue.
