In front of a near full-house in Indore, Team India gave it's fans a lot to cheer about as Virat Kohli's men ran through New Zealand's batting order to complete a 3-0 whitewash in the Test series.
India bundled out New Zealand for 153 in their second innings to register a massive 321-run win on day four of the third and final Test and won the three-Test series 3-0. This is Virat Kohli's first series whitewash since becoming captain.
And the man of the moment? Why Ravichandran Ashwin, of course.
On Twitter, Team India came in for a lot of praise:
A career-best 7 for 59 in the innings. A career-best 13 for 140 in a match.October 11, 2016

A tick mark too for @imVkohli who never took his foot off the pedal.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) October 11, 2016
Well fought series but eventually India knocked the fight out of NZ. Dominance. Best in Test. Well done, India 😊👏🙏👍 #IndvsNZ— Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) October 11, 2016
Ashwin, of course, was the hero of the moment!
Too much for everything is bad, we were told. Clearly not with wickets for @ashwinravi99— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) October 11, 2016
Stunning performance by @ashwinravi99: this Test, this series, the past couple of years - in fact since he came into international cricket— Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) October 11, 2016
Far too easy for Ashwin. He could very well break plenty of records in this home season itself. #INDvNZ— Nikhil 🏏 (@CricCrazyNIKS) October 11, 2016
I love how the best contribution of the seamers has been providing Ashwin with footmarks.— SMV (@poisonaavi) October 11, 2016
Nobody else is going to win the MoS award as long as this Ashwin plays for India. #INDvNZ— Pratyush Sinha (@prat1204) October 11, 2016
7th Man of the Series in just 15 series for Ash! #IndvsNZ
