After the loss in Adelaide many former Australian cricketers felt India would be whitewashed.
But India roared back in Melbourne, held on in Sydney and then on Tuesday, the young Indian team ‘pushed harder when the chips were down’ and toppled the mighty Australians in their fortress – the Gabba to clinch the series 2-1 and retain the coveted Border Gavaskar trophy.
The members of the triumphant Indian team took to Twitter to celebrate their historic victory Down Under.
“When the chips are down. You push harder. A series we can never forget. Smiling face with heart-shaped eyes. Through the tough times we always believed and backed ourselves and this series win proves with belief you can achieve everything,” young wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant, who played a match-winning 89 not out in Brisbane, wrote on his social media handle. Pant was also adjudged Man of the match.
