It was difficult, but it happened and how. After losing the first Test at Pune and in the fashion they lost must have battered any opposition in the world but it did not ruffle the Indian team. They came back hard and won at Bengaluru squaring the series and then to win it at Dharamsala, sans Virat Kohli has been an unimaginable effort by the Indian team. Australia had the Border-Gavaskar trophy, so the onus was on India to regain it from them and they did just that after a hectic home season, it was great to see the the fight and valour the Indian boys showed at Dharamsala and throughout the season has brought charm to Test cricket again, certainly.

A lot was at stake for the hosts, their number one ranking in Tests and also their pride and reputation at stake but the way they played, they emerged as champions. It was also great to see Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane lift the trophy together, they have truly been great ambassadors to Indian cricket for certain and Indian fans would be hoping they continue in this very fashion.

Virat Kohli and the Indian boys will be ready in a weeks time to play the money-spinning Indian Premier League.
