Bad weather ensured that there was no play on the fifth day of the fourth Test which meant the Test ended in a draw and India clinched the series 2-1.

Soon after the presentations, Team India celebrated the win at the ground and the highlight of the celebration was the entire team performing the ‘Pujara Dance’ initiated by young wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant.

The Indian captain Virat Kohli celebrated the win at the ground with his wife Anushka Sharma.

My biggest achievement: Kohli

The Indian captain Virat Kohli was delighted to win the series and said that he has never been more proud of being part of a team, than this one right here. He noted that their transition began right here, where he took over as captain, and he can’t believe that after four years they have won here.

He stated that the boys make the captain look good and by far, this is his biggest achievement. It’s at the top of the pile and after coming three times, this win means something else.

He said special mention to Pujara, as he has been outstanding in the series, especially after his last time out in Australia. Kohli noted that Pujara is one guy willing to accept things, he works on his game, he’s the nicest man around, and they feel happy for him.
