Team India played like true heroes in the fourth and final Test against Australia at the Gabba in Brisbane. Crippled by a spate of injuries to their top players, India fielded almost a third-string bowling attack but still managed to beat Australia by three wickets to clinch the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2-1. Head coach Ravi Shastri gave a rousing speech to the pround members of the Indian team in the dressing room after they became the first team to defeat Australia at the Gabba after 32 years.
Shastri hailed the team for the resilience and spirit they showed to come back from the Adelaide debacle and win the series to retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. He then lavished praise on Shubman Gill for his fluent 91. He hailed Cheteshwar Pujara — who copped several blows to the body for his 211-ball 56 in India’s second innings — as ‘the ultimate warrior’.
