With the win, India registered their 10th victory by an innings under the leadership of Kohli, who went past MS Dhoni to become the Indian captain with most innings under his name. Previously, former India captain Dhoni had led the country to nine victories by an innings.
It was the sixth consecutive victory for the team in the longest format of the game. India have consolidated their first position on the ICC World Test Championship points table, as they now have 300 points.
India will now play against Bangladesh in the second Test which will be a day/night match played with a pink ball at Eden Gardens in Kolkata from November 22-26.
