Sydney: Team India lead by Virat Kohli created history when they became the first team from Asia to win a Test series in Australia, here on Monday.

As soon as the umpired call off the final day game due to rain, the visitors erupted in joy and congratulated each other. The entire team then went down to the ground to greet the crowd and danced in front of their fans.

When the Men in Blue came out to the field, the likes of Kohli, KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant made Player of the Series Cheteshwar Pujara dance!

Pujara’s fine form with the bat was a key part of India’s series win. He top-scored in the series, notching up 521 runs that included three centuries and one half-century.

When asked about it after the match, the skipper dubbed his show with the bat too as the 'Pujara dance' and revealed that Rishabh Pant came up with the analogy as a joke on the way India’s number three walks.

“That was the Pujara dance because when he walks he doesn’t move his hands, so it’s more of an extension of his walk. Rishabh came up with it and we just joined in.”

“It just felt good. It was very easy but Pujara couldn’t even do that! You can see how simple he is,” Kohli added.

That wasn't the only time Pujara asked to dance. Later on, the Indian team were dancing along with 'The Bharat Army' members and did not shy away from showcasing their moves.

The two teams will now play a three-match One-Day International series that begins on Saturday.
