There were joyous scenes at the Multan Stadium as India secured its first Test win on Pakistani soil, beating the hosts by an innings and 52 runs on Thursday.
The Indians had not won any of their previous 20 Tests in Pakistan, losing five and drawing 15.
It was only India's second innings victory over Pakistan. The other was the inaugural Test between the two teams in New Delhi in 1952.
Sourav Ganguly and his boys are proving they are one of the best Indian teams ever. Victories in the West Indies, Australia, England and now Pakistan have seen them shed the tag of home tigers.
Join in the celebration and congratulate the Indian team on their historic victory!
