"I see this series as a stepping stone for this team to inspire the next lot of Test cricketers to be passionate about Test cricket firstly", Kohli said. This Indian team has done Indian cricket proud.

"I can not see Australia beating England this summer unless they assess themselves brutally", Vaughan wrote in his column for London's Telegraph newspaper.

He said he was really disappointed to lose the Test series and the team felt the absence of a few players (banned Steve Smith and David Warner). "It's amusing, in a big series of four Tests you go back to a couple of key moments in the very first Test where we let ourselves down, or India outplayed us, and you get to the end of the series and it's really hard to take".

All eyes were on Virat Kohli before the start of the Test series but Pujara made the four-Test contest his own.

The Australians had just one lbw dismissal in the entire India series, he said, indicating there were not enough deliveries directed at the stumps. India will face Australia in three ODI matches starting from 12th January, and the visitors would have to be wary of a strong comeback from the hurting hosts.

Whether it was the awkward angles along created by Bumrah along with some incisive movements, Mohammed Shami getting it to rip on occasions, Ishant Sharma hitting the right length over after over, India never had it so good in terms of consistency in overseas conditions.

"Today I can say I am proud of my boys and I can also tell them one thing which Virat touched in the presentation that this team now has an identity to look at any other Indian team from the past in the eye and say "we play proper Test-match cricket".
