India's come from behind victory helped skipper Virat Kohli register an impressive feat - his 10th home series win, equalling Ricky Pointing's record.
As India continued their unbeaten run at home, they roared into the final of the inaugural edition of the ICC World Test Championship (WTC). India will face New Zealand in the WTC final slated to be played from June 18 to 22, with June 23 as the reserve day at the iconic Lord's Stadium in London.
India finished as the number one team with 72.2 percentage points in the WTC points table, the factor that determined the final placings rather than total points won, following a change to the points system owing to the Covid-19 disruption.
The Black Caps were the first team to ensure a place in the final with 70 percentage points. Australia finished third with 69.2 percentage points while England ended with 61.4 percentage points at the fourth position.
