Spurred on by some individual performances, India fought back from 0-1 down to retain the Anthony De Mello Trophy. In the Hyderabad series opener, India suffered a 28-run defeat.

Ravichandran Ashwin, arguably India's greatest match-winner in the format, celebrated his 100th Test with nine wickets. With that, here's a look at the top performers

For Jaiswal, it was a memorable series. The 22-year-old joined an exclusive club by becoming only the second Indian batter to surpass the 700-run mark in a Test series. Sunil Gavaskar achieved the feat twice in his celebrated career.

The youngster also became the second-fastest Indian player to reach 1000 Test runs, in 16 innings, only behind Vinod Kambli (14 innings).
