List of India's overseas Test series wins

With the win in Australia, Virat Kohli has become the first Indian and Asian captain to lift a trophy Down Under.   

The Virat Kohli-led side created history on Monday by sealing India's first-ever Test series win in Australia by 2-1 after the rain-marred fourth and the final Test concluded in a draw at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). 
Though the final Test was turned out to be a damp squib, the visitors utterly dominated the action and eventually became the first team side from the Asian sub-continent to take the honors Down Under.
India had earlier already retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy by registering 31-run and 137-run wins in Adelaide and Melbourne, but a 193-run knock from Cheteshwar Pujara, 159-run knock from Rishabh Pant and significant contributions from Mayank Agarwal (77) and Ravindra Jadeja (81) allowed the visitors post a daunting 622/7 declared total in the first-innings and bat Australia out of the fourth match.
The match also saw India force the hosts to follow-on at home ground for the first time since 1988.
Earlier, Kohli’s side had become the first Indian team in 41 years to win two Test matches in a series against Australia in an away series after clinching wins in Adelaide and Melbourne.
With the win, Kohli has become the first Indian and Asian captain to lift a trophy Down Under. While it was indeed a historic win for India, let us have a look at some of the side's other greatest Test series wins overseas.
