KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Bumrah's nine wickets in the match helped India win the match by 137 runs.

"We've definitely had opportunities to make hundreds in the series, it's been execution or a few other amusing ways that people have got out, so that's it really".

Virat Kohli the winning captain: "Firstly, I want to say I've never been more proud of being part of a team, than this one right here. The boys make the captain look good", an elated skipper Virat Kohli said after the mission was accomplished. "Has to be on top of the pile", he said.

"It's been a hard-fought series and they deserve to take home the trophy".

The fourth day of the Test started nearly four hours late due to rain, with the home team resuming on 236 for six in reply to India's thumping first innings 622 for seven declared. The huge total meant that India were close to another victory as they enforced a follow-on after bowling out Australia for 300 in the first innings but the rain Gods did not allow that to happen.

Openers Usman Khawaja (4) and Marcus Harris (2) safely negotiated four overs until bad light and light drizzle forced an early end to an already heavily rain-disrupted day just before the rescheduled tea break.

Brief Scores: India 622/7 December lead Australia 300 (Marcus Harris 79, Mitchell Starc 29*; Kuldeep Yadav 5-99) & 6/0.

And us? We'll know more after the upcoming two-Test series against Sri Lanka, which for the record is the fifth versus sixth battle on current Test rankings.

Commenting on how this ranks with the 2011 World Cup win, Kohli said: "When we won the World Cup, I was a young player".

He added that there were "no illusions" about his team's shortcomings, particularly their batting. "But cricket's a amusing game and it can turn very quickly".

India have all but confirmed their first series Test victory in Australia by batting for almost two full days in raising 622-7 declared with Pujara (193) and Pant (159 not out) scoring centuries. India have finally won a Test series in Australia.

"I would like to play white-ball cricket but Test cricket will always be my priority". While skipper Kohli hit the best hundred of the series in terms of sheer class on a hard Perth Stadium track, the unflappable Cheteshwar Pujara (521) and the unconventional Jasprit Bumrah (21 wickets) were the heroes of the memorable "first".

Aside from man-of-the-series Pujara, a big part of their success in Australia has been executing their bowling plans to deprive the Australian batsmen of playing their shots.

India came here late a year ago as the world's top-ranked Test nation.
