Must Read


Score: Australia 369 & 295; India 336 & 7-329. India win by three wickets, claim series 2-1.

Summary: A win appeared out of reach for all but Australia at lunch, but India backed themselves in a record-breaking fourth innings chase at the Gabba. Rishabh Pant and Washington Sundar stepped up in the final session to stun the hosts in a famous three-wicket win with just 19 balls remaining.

Man of the moment: Rishabh Pant (89 not out) was denied the role of match-winner in the SCG draw but he saw India home in even grander style at the Gabba, steering India home when they needed 69 off more than a run in a ball in the final hour of play.

Key moment: Mitchell Starc was taken for 20 runs from his 12th over during the middle session, Shubman Gill (91) and Cheteshwar Pujara (56) choosing their moment to attack and suddenly give hope to India’s most unlikely chase.

Stat of the day: India’s chase of 328 was the highest successful fourth innings effort in Tests played at the Gabba, ending an unbeaten streak for the hosts that stretched back to 1988.

Quote of the day: “Young India has done it. Young India has shown the way. Young India is showing that they are not afraid. What a win. What a magnificent win,” proud Indian great Sunil Gavaskar said in Channel 7 commentary.
