India's leading run-getter Cheteshwar Pujara was named Man of the Series after India clinched first ever Test series win in Australia. Pujara scored 521 runs at an average of 74 with the help of three hundreds. He said, 'It's a great feeling for all of us. We've been working hard to win a series overseas, and winning in Australia has never been easy. This is the best Indian side I have been part of. I would like to congratulate the team'.
'We have had four bowlers, and it's not easy taking 20 wickets, so credit goes to all our fast bowlers and spinners...It is remarkable,' he said. 'I am really pleased with my contribution. As a batsman, I was just getting used to the pace and bounce. Apart from that, playing in South Africa and England has helped me improve my technique. For me, it's all about preparation and I was very well prepared.'
