Stats - India breach the Gabba fortress

India's bowling attack was decimated by the loss of Jasprit Bumrah and Ravichandran Ashwin, who could easily have been chosen as man of the series ahead of Pat Cummins if he played the final test.

Starc has come under intense scrutiny after a modest series against India, with the fast bowler taking just 11 wickets at 40.72 across the four Tests. He had made centuries in each innings (127 & 100 n.o.) in the four-match series against South Africa in 2015.

"Just a remarkable win.To go to Australia and win a test series in this way.will be remembered in the history of indian cricket forever.Bcci announces a 5 cr bonus for the team.The value of this win is beyond any number.well done to every member of the touring party", Ganguly tweeted. We walked away from Adelaide, everyone were saying we were awesome and we were pretty ordinary for most of that Test match except for an hour. Chasing Australia's target of 328 in the Gabba Test, India rode on brilliant knocks from Shubman Gill (91), Rishabh Pant (89 not out) and Cheteshwar Pujara (56).

Jason Gillespie believes Travis Head was harshly dealt with by Australian selectors following his axing from the Test side.

⦾ Rishabh Pant became the first Indian wicketkeeper to score fifty-plus scores in the fourth innings of a Test match on three separate occasions. Three of the top five batsmen are Indians, with Pujara's 2018-19 series at the top with 1258 deliveries.

After Australia won it by two wickets, Worrell presented Australian captain Richie Benaud with his cap, tie and blazer, along with the comments "I give Richie my scalp, my neck and my body".


2 - Series won by India in Australia.

Having been rolled for a record 36 in the series opener in Adelaide, almost every pundit had Australia sweeping India 4-0 - including England legend Michael Vaughan.

2015 - The last instance when two consecutive Tests had the same result in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy when the third and fourth Tests were draws.

It was a gracious act by a gracious team - one that differs in so many ways from those that have come before. On the other hand, right-handers at that slot average only 24.76 in this period.

India have played seven matches, losing five, drawing one and winning the one in the ongoing series.
