On Monday, India ended its 71-year waiting period to win a series Down Under. The visitors made their name in the fourth and final Test in Sydney by 2-1.
After the start of Australia's tour in 1947-48, India did this for the first time. As a result, Virat Kohli became the first Indian and first Asian captain to win Test series in Australia.
Pujara's performance was important with the bat in India's victory, but there was also the role of Indian pace attack led by Jaspreet Bumrah, in which the history of India's screenplay was.
Pujara scored 521 runs in seven innings at an average of 74.43, with three centuries in his name. Based on his lofty standards, Virat Kohli scored 282 runs with an average of 40.29.
Rishabh Pant, who scored 350 runs at an average of 58.33, was the second highest run-getter batsman.
