After all the hard work in the four Test matches, it was time for Team India to celebrate after clinching one of the most awaited Test series wins overseas. Team India finally hosted their flag on the land of Australia in whites.

The top performer for India was Cheteshwar Pujara with 521 runs in five innings he batted. Pujara was good with the bat but when it came to shaking a leg in celebration, he couldn't do it. 

Virat Kohli was laughing, apparently, when he narrated the story behind the dance. He revealed it was an idea of youngster Rishabh Pant. He also named it 'Pujara Dance' because the Indian number 3 batsman doesn't move his hands while walking in to bat.

When asked about the dance more, Virat replied, "You'll have to ask Rishabh Pant that, he came up with that and we just went along. I don't know what he was trying to do, to be honest. It just felt good, it was very easy but Pujara could not even do that. You can see how simple he is."

Pujara after receiving the award said this is the best team he has been a part of. "Definitely the best squad I've been a part of. Congratulations to the bowlers. Taking 20 wickets in never easy.

"It's a great feeling for all of us. We've been working really hard to win a series overseas. And especially doing it in this country, it's never easy," said at the post-match press conference.

"The first hundred was special, scoring it in Adelaide and going 1-0 up is something which we were all aiming for. When you do that, there's a good chance of winning the series. As a batsman, you just need to get used to pace and bounce. Playing in different conditions, in South Africa, in England, in county cricket has helped me improve my technique," he said.
