India justified their top ranking with their breakthrough overseas win in Australia and captain Virat Kohli has reasons to be optimistic about leading a team which can dominate test cricket for years to come.

Their rise to the top of the test rankings under Kohli was built on strong home form and the 30-year-old has since been insisting on winning abroad to lend legitimacy to the status.

After defeats in South Africa and England, success finally came in Sydney when Kohli and his men ended India’s agonising 71-year wait for a Test series victory in Australia.
