India Won A Historic First-Ever Series In Australia

CRICKET

A dominant India won a historic first-ever series in Australia with a 2-1 victory after play in the fourth and final Test in Sydney was abandoned due to rain.

Australia were still 316 runs behind when the match was called off as a draw, leaving India with a series triumph after wins in Adelaide and Melbourne.

Australia were all set to resume their second innings on six without loss, still 316 runs behind India’s first innings 622-7 declared, after the tourists enforced the follow-on on the rain-disrupted fourth day.

It is the first time they have managed the feat since they began touring Australia in 1947-48.
