Kohli now has four Test series wins away from home.

Regardless, it marks the first time a touring team has had the option to enforce the follow on twice in one summer in Australia. With a 2-1 lead, India could not have lost the series and it seemed improbable Australia could bounce back from the thrashing at the Melbourne Cricket Ground to share honours 2-2.

India came into the Sydney Test with a 2-1 lead in the four-match Test series after winning the matches in Adelaide and Melbourne while the hosts were able to win the second match in Perth.

The left-hander showed plenty of intent but just when it seemed he could be heading for a maiden test ton, he played the ball onto his own stumps off the bowling of Ravindra Jadeja.

Kohli admitted he's "never been more proud to be a part of a team than this one", singling out man of the series Cheteshwar Pujara as the backbone of the Indian side. So win or draw today, they'll still win the series. But he was not to be satisfied with that.

India now lead the four Test series 2-1 and only need a draw to clinch a first-ever series win Australia. "The boys make the captain look good", an elated skipper Virat Kohli said after the mission was accomplished. Leave alone a three-figure score, none of the Australian batsman could even cross the 80-run barrier, something that legends like Ricky Ponting, Shane Warne, Mike Hussey, Ian Chappell found hard to fathom. The duo of Pujara and Rishabh Pant scored big hundreds and batted Australia out of the match and hence the series as well. With their full focus on how to decode Kohli's genius, Australian team led by an out of depth Tim Paine realised late that Pujara has struck from the "blind side" with his near flawless defensive technique and three hundreds. He became the only Indian wicketkeeper to score a hundred in Australia and only the fourth Indian wicketkeeper to score over 150 in Tests.

And then it was all about Kuldeep Yadav.

Rain arrived, as predicted on Saturday.

With the quality of tennis displayed against Novak Djokovic , Roberto will be the favorite going into the finals. Djokovic was in cruise control in the first set, winning 6-3, and took an early break in the second.

Kuldeep (5-99) then trapped Nathan Lyon for no score, becoming the sixth Indian to take a five-wicket haul at the SCG.

For India captain Virat Kohli, this is a watershed moment for Indian cricket. No visiting team had enforced the follow-on in Australia since 1988. Australia, without Steve Smith and David Warner, were considerably weakened but the presence of a full-strength bowling attack had given them hope. While young Prithvi Shaw missed out due to an ankle injury, Mayank Agarwal made most of his chances after an eternal wait for the India cap with two half centuries.

Kohli and teammates celebrated by thanking supporters who had stuck around despite the showers.
