The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Monday congratulated the national team for clinching the country's first ever Test series win in Australia.

India completed a historic 2-1 series win on Monday after the fourth and final Test ended in a draw since the fifth day's play was washed out due to persistent rain.

"We wish to congratulate the Indian team for becoming the first Asian team to win a Test series in Australia and to create cricket history," the BCCI's Acting President C.K. Khanna said in a statement.

"We also take the opportunity to congratulate Virat Kohli for his superb captaincy. He led from the front and impressed every one with his tactics," he added.

The board also lavished praise on top order batsman Cheteshwar Pujara for his superb form throughout the series.

Pujara was the backbone of the Indian batting line-up, emerging as the highest scorer of the series with 521 runs.

"Special mention is being made of Cheteshwar Pujara for producing career-best performance in the series. He richly deserved two man of the match awards and his first Player of the series award," Khanna said.

"We wish the Indian team all the best in the forthcoming ODI series," he added.

"This is one of the best possible New Year gift to our great nation."
