Indian dominates Team of the Series
India claimed a two-one series win Down Under over Australia for the first time.
They had five centuries for the series, while the home side failed to score one in a home four-Test series for the first time since 1886.
The tourists also filled two of the top three on the wicket-taking charts, with opening bowler Jasprit Bumrah the star of the series.
Accordingly, India dominate our best XI for the series.
Marcus Harris - 258 runs at 36.85. High score of 79
Made his debut in Adelaide and was the only Australian batsman whose reputation was enhanced at series end.
Harris was compact and showed the required temperament to succeed in Test cricket.
But the 26-year-old left-hander will look back and think 'what could have been?'
In every innings Harris appeared set to post big runs. Indeed, he scored two half-centuries. He copped a wicked delivery that bounced off a crack from right-arm tweaker Hanuma Vihari in Perth, but threw away his wicket in Sydney when lazily attempting a late cut and chopped onto his stumps.
The one vulnerability Harris has shown has been against the short ball, where he was struck on the head on a number of occasions and caught at fine-leg top-edging once too.
Likely to open in the Ashes later this year, but Harris needs to turn starts into matchwinning centuries. That starts with better shot selection.
Mayank Agarwal - 195 runs at 65.00. High score of 77
Called up after Prithvi Shaw was ruled out of the series following the second Test, Agarwal has looked the part in his debut series.
A brilliant 76 on Test debut on Boxing Day, Agarwal took it to the Australian attack from the first ball. Technically correct, Agarwal, for the best part, found the happy medium between defence and attack.
In the second innings, he top scored with a gutsy 42 when his teammates were dropping like flies.
Agarwal followed up his impressive debut with another half century in Sydney, before he was caught on the boundary attempting one big shot too many off Nathan Lyon and was out for 77.
It won't be long before the 27-year-old has another sponsorship to fill his clean bat skin.
Cheteshwar Pujara - 521 runs at 74.42. High score 193
Centuries in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney tell you all you need to know.
Four years ago Pujara left Australia with his tail between his legs after being dropped before the series was over. Later this week, he will leave Australian shores as the Player of the Series.
Pujara showed every Australian how to go about scoring runs and surviving in Test cricket. His ability to bat time, his temperament and his shot selection was batting 101.
Virat Kohli (c) - 282 runs at 40.28. High score 123
The first Indian captain to win a series Down Under.
Kohli was a different class in Perth. When others struggled on an up-and-down wicket, the world's premier batsman stood tall and carved out a brilliant century.
His 82 at the MCG also helped pave the way for India's series lead.
Ajinkya Rahane - 217 runs at 31. High score of 70
No hundreds, but Rahane still contributed with the bat.
His second-innings 70 helped set up India's victory in the first Test.
Rishabh Pant - 350 runs at 58.33. High score of 159*. 20 catches
India's wicketkeeper batsman grew with each passing innings.
In Adelaide he was reckless, though effective, with the willow, but still made handy contributions. By the end of the series, Pant was batting Australia out of contention. He had a spectacular series in which he found the balance between brawn and brains.
Pant's glove work wasn't quite as clean as Tim Paine's, but the Indian nudged Australia's captain for his effectiveness with the bat.
Ravindra Jadeja - 90 runs at 30 and seven wickets at 28.57
India lost the second Test after losing Ravi Ashwin to injury and there were fears they would once again struggle in Melbourne without their star slow bowler.
But Jadeja more than made up for his absence, taking five wickets in the Boxing Day Test.
In Sydney, he helped wrap up the series victory with a blistering 81.
Patrick Cummins - 163 runs at 23.28 and 14 wickets at 27.78
Australia's player of the series.
Cummins bowled his heart out and contributed heavily with the bat and was speculator in the field.
His heroics in Melbourne, where he took 6-27 in the second innings and then scored 63 with the bat led to some pundits, including Shane Warne, calling for him to be the next Australian captain.
Cummins' run-out of Pujara in Adelaide late on day one was one of the highlights of the summer, too.
Nathan Lyon - 83 runs at 20.75 and 21 wickets at 30.42
With Australia's quicks struggling to make inroads in Melbourne and Sydney, Lyon was forced to shoulder much of the load.
His 21 wickets saw him finish equal alongside Indian quick Jasprit Bumrah on the wicket taking charts for the series.
Lyon also made a number of handy contributions with the bat, where he (38 not out) almost led Australia to an unlikely victory in Adelaide but ran out of partners.
Mohammed Shami - 16 wickets at 26.81
Reliable and skilful with the ball, Shami was the perfect foil for new ball bowlers Ishant Sharma and Bumrah.
Shami finished third on the wicket taking charts with 16 poles.
His 6-56 in Perth gave India a chance in the second Test.
Jasprit Bumrah - 21 wickets at 17.00
India's opening bowler was a close second to Pujara for Player of the Series.
The right-arm quick took 21 wickets at the outstanding average of 17.
He bowled India to victory in Melbourne taking nine wickets for the match, including 6-33 in the first-innings.
Bumrah's slower ball yorker to trap Shaun Marsh in front on the final before lunch on day three was the delivery of the series.
Tim Paine, 12th man - 174 runs at 24.85. 14 catches
