IND beat Aus in 4th Test to retain Border-Gavaskar Trophy: The Ajinkya Rahane-led inexperienced side on Tuesday beat Australia in the fourth and final Test to retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. India playing without Jasprit Bumrah, Ashwin and Jadeja were the underdogs in Brisbane Test but the youngsters stepped up to lead the visitors to a historic win. Cricket legends were quick to react on India’s victory in Brisbane which was once Australia’s citadel. It was the first time in 30 years that the Men Down Under collapsed at Gabba.
Here is how Cricket legends reacted:
WHAT A WIN!!! Yessssss. To everyone who doubted us after Adelaide, stand up and take notice. Exemplary performance but the grit and determination was the standout for us the whole way. Well done to all the boys and the management. Enjoy this historic feat lads. Cheers 👏🏼🇮🇳 @BCCI pic.twitter.com/CgWElgOOO1

A few years ago, these two Pant and Sundar were going great guns at the Under 19 world cup.
Who would have thought a few years later, these two on Australian soil will take us on course to one of India’s greatest test wins . pic.twitter.com/FEfozghPP6

#TeamIndia win the Gabba Test by 3 wickets. Rishabh Pant shines with a match-winning 89*.

Okay then….let’s say this one more time. Rishabh Pant should be playing for India in all three formats too. He’s reminded us that let’s not lose patience with him. How blooody good has he been….!!! A game-changer. #AusvInd

Long live test cricket ! No global sport gives you what we just witnessed over the last 2 months. Absolutely love test cricket. As for Aust-no disgrace in being beaten by a better side-but I’m sure there will be a huge debrief analysing strategy and tactics from the entire series

For all of us in 🇮🇳 & across the world, if you ever score 36 or lesser in life, remember: it isn’t 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. pic.twitter.com/qqaTTAg9uW

Only issue with India beating Australia in such an INCREDIBLE manner, is that the Test was played in Brisbane.
A city that doesn’t deserve an event so good! 🤣
Pant – the boy who turned into a man today in Australia, in cricketing terms!

Test cricket’s heart is beating strongly! That was an extraordinary win @BCCI & a fantastic series to watch. Aussies not lost at The Gabba since 1988. Wow
