India Seals the Series after a Historic Gabba Test Victory:- The Indian tour of Australia came to an end after a historic victory by Team India in the final and decider fourth test that took place in Gabba. Australia has been left undefeated in the Gabba for the past 32 years and India created a history in the test and sealed the Gavaskar - Border test series by 2-1. Australia won the toss and elected to bat. The host made 369 runs in their first innings and India turned up for 336 in their first innings after which Australia received a slight lead of 33 runs. India dominated the test match from the third day and Australia fell short of expectations and went all out for 294 in their second innings.
Chasing a total of 328, India looked comfortable from the first over. Even after losing Rohit Sharma for a low score, Indian batsmen stood strong. Shubman Gill (91) and Rishabh Pant (89 not out) have been top class and contributed the most. Cheteshwar Pujara (56) has been quite supportive and India chased the total with three overs left and lost seven wickets. Rishabh Pant has been named as the Player of the Match and Pat Cummins is the Player of the series for his outstanding performance in all the test matches. Though the test match seemed to head for a draw, Indian batsmen over-performed in the last 15 overs and scored most of the runs.
