Newbies, Mohammed Siraj, and Shardul Thakur restricted Australia to 294 in their second innings.

Youngsters, Rishabh Pant and, Shubman Gill showed brilliant performance, along with Cheteshwar Pujara, who slammed a half-century to take India over the scoreline in the 328-run chase at the Gabba on the final day of the series. 

Shubman Gill provided a heroic performance to India with his career-best Test score of 91, unfortunately missing his Test ton. Pujara scored a mettlesome 56 runs and Pant’s valiant performance with an unbeaten 89 to drive India to a memorable series win. With this three-wicket win, India brought an end to Australia’s 32-year-long history of the unbeaten streak at The Gabba and inscribed their maiden Test victory at the venue.

This win at The Gabba is extremely special in many ways for the Indian team as the team played without a number of experienced, and key players and their regular skipper Virat Kohli for the last three games.

Even Team India faced a backlash by many former cricketers and experts, and also the netizens after their humiliating 8-wicket defeat in the series-opener in Adelaide but the visitors fought back to win the second Test in Melbourne before drawing the third one in Sydney.

Ahead of the fourth Test, India lost four key players to injuries namely Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah, R Ashwin, and Hanuma Vihari but the youngsters like Shardul Thakur, Washington Sundar, Mohammed Siraj, Shubman Gill, and Rishabh Pant stepped up and drove India to a brilliant victory at The Gabba ensuring the Indian Cricket Team future.
