India Scripts History At The Gabba, Australia Suffers Historic Defeat
January 19, 2021, will be remembered as the historical date in the history of Indian cricket. They have defeated the so-called Australian side back in their home. Although the odds were against Team India. But still, they managed to turn things around in their favor. At the beginning of Day-5, the stage was set for both sides and a dramatic game was expected with some drama in it.
The visitors got off the mark poorly as they lost the wicket of Rohit Sharma quite early. It looked like Australia will easily castle out Team India on the final day with the pitch having cracks in it. But, Team India had a plan of creating history. Shubhman Gill, the young Indian batsman took responsibility on his shoulders.
Subhman Gill, Rishabh Pant, And Cheteshwar Pujara Played Outstanding Knocks
He played a match-defining knock of 91 runs before getting dismissed to Nathan Lyon. Later on, Rishabh Pant joined the party. Before the Test series began, the Delhiite was struggling to regain his place on the national side. But, today he has proved every single critic wrong with a bang-on knock at The Gabba.
Pant partnered senior player Cheteshwar Pujara and helped Team India in winning the game. The youngster played a remarkable knock of 89 runs that single-handedly took the game away from Australia. Meanwhile, Cheteshwar Pujara did at what he is best and played a resilient inning of 56 runs off 211 balls.
In the end, Team India registered a convincing win with 17 balls to spare and chased down a mammoth total of 328 runs with ease. This was the first occasion in the last three decades that any Asian side has defeated Australia at their fortress (The Gabba). And, finally, the Indian cricket team proved that winning the Test series in Australia against the home side back in 2018-19 was not a fluke. But, they can go and win wherever they want across the globe.
