It was on January 7, 2019 when Virat Kohli's men became the first-ever Indian team to register a Test series win in Australia. It was the first time since 1947, that India were able to register a Test series victory in Down Under as they defeated the Tim Paine-led side 2-1 in the four-match rubber.

In their last tour Down Under, India had won the first Test in Melbourne (December 6-10) by 31 runs in Adelaide. They lost the second match (December 14-18) in Perth by 146 runs. However, they came back strongly in the third Test in Melbourne (December 26-30), registering a famous win by eight wickets. The fourth and the final Test (January 3-7) had ended in a draw in Sydney.

Speaking about the historic series win, former batsman VVS Laxman had said that it was his long-cherished dream which Kohli's men fulfilled by defeating Australia in the own backyard and won the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
