Shubman Gill’s 91, Cheteshwar Pujara’s Battle Against Bouncers Praised by Fans on Twitter After Duo Keeps Australian Bowlers at Bay on Day 5 of Gabba Test

Shubman Gill put up a batting exhibition on the Day 5 of the fourth Test but missed out on his maiden Test hundred. After toiling the Aussie bowlers, Gill fell prey to off-spinner Nathan Lyon for 91. Nevertheless, his efforts were highly appreciated by the fans as social media went berserk. All the odds were against the youngster ahead of the final day’s play as the Gabba track seemed deteriorated while Pat Cummins were breathing fire with the red cherry. Moreover, his veteran opening partner Rohit Sharma got dismissed after scoring just seven runs. However, Gill found a potent partner in Cheteshwar Pujara who battled with the bouncers with great temperament. Justifying his title of the modern-day wall, the veteran batsman frustrated the Aussie bowlers with his rock-solid defence. India vs Australia 4th Test 2021 Live Score Updates Day 5.

At the same time, Team India are also not expected to chase down the total. However, cricket is a game of certainty, and all three results are still possible. Notably, Team India won the previous Test series between these two sides in 2019. Hence, if this series ends in a draw, Ajinkya Rahane’s men will retain the Border Gavaskar Trophy.
