India: India beat Australia by three wickets in the fourth and final Test at the Gabba in Brisbane to win the four-match series 2-1 and retain the Border-Gavaskar trophy for the second time in a row.
Rishabh Pant played an excellent knock and remained unbeaten on 89 to help India chase down 328 on a fifth-day track in Brisbane. India became the first team to beat Australia in a Test match in Brisbane in 32 years.
This is also India’s first victory at Gabba in 7 Tests; before this, India had lost five while drawing one at the venue.
India had not played at the iconic venue during their last trip in 2018-19, wherein they clinched a historic Test series win.
On this massive victory, Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi congratulates team India through his tweet.
He said,” We are all overjoyed at the success of the Indian Cricket Team in Australia. Their remarkable energy and passion were visible throughout. So was their stellar intent, remarkable grit, and determination. Congratulations to the team! Best wishes for your future endeavors.”
God of Cricket Sachin Tendulkar said,” For all of us in & across the world, if you ever score 36 or lesser in life, remember: it isn’t the end of the world. The spring stretches backward only to propel you forward. And once you succeed, don’t forget to celebrate with those who stood by you when the world wrote you off.”
Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan tweeted, “What an absolutely marvelous victory for our team!!! I waited up all night to watch it unfold ball by ball. Now will sleep peacefully for a bit and savour this historic moment. Love to all our boys and greatly admire their resilience to power us through to this win. Chak De India.”
