What a glorious few days of Test match it has been for cricket fans, especially for the Indians.

Early on Monday, Team India ended their 10-year drought in Australia after the visitors defeated the hosts in what turned out to be a nail-biting 5th day, of the Adelaide Oval Test.

With this historic victory, India took a 1-0 series lead over the spirited Aussies, who fell short of just 31 runs with a target of 323 runs on the scoreboard.

Given that it was a huge moment to celebrate, fans united on Twitter to rejoice.

There was some nostalgia.

With 8 wickets in his bag and a fighting 24* and 38* in 1st and 2nd innings respectively, Nathan Lyon won hearts for his brilliant contribution to the cause.

"It was important to stay calm. The odds were against them after Pat Cummins was dismissed. I wouldn't say I was cool as ice but you try not to show it. It was just a matter of one mistake or one good ball. Super proud to have four bowlers and take 20 wickets to win this Test match. As I said earlier, it's up to our batsmen to step up in this series. Pujara and Rahane stood up in this match. I thought we were the better team and deserved to win overall," Virat Kohli said in the post-presentation ceremony.

With 123 and 71 in the Test, Cheteshwar Pujara was adjudged the man-of-the-match.

"Playing before in Australia helped me, had prepared accordingly. We still need to improve as a batting unit overall and the credit for the victory should go to the bowlers. It means a lot, my father was the one who started coaching me when I was 8. I am sure he would be proud of me today," Pujara said.

7-187 at one point, Aussies looked pretty much done and dusted but Tim Paine (41), Pat Cummins (28), Mitchell Starc (28), Nathan Lyon (38) delayed India's victory and brought the crowd back alive at the Adelaide.

Here's the final scorecard:
