On the other hand, the Aussies had a full-strength team, and their triumph against a depleted Indian team looked inevitable. Moreover, India had to chase 327 runs in the last innings on a deteriorating Gabba track. Nevertheless, Ajinkya Rahane’s men didn’t put their guards down and crossed the line. While Shubman Gill and Cheteshwar Pujara played crucial knocks, wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant was the chief architect of India’s triumph. He scored an unbeaten 89 of 138 deliveries to take his side to supremacy. As records shattered in Brisbane, Twitterati also went wild as fans heaped praises on Team India.
