Team India delivered one of the greatest performances in the country’s test cricket history as they not only won the Border-Gavaskar trophy by defeating Australia, but also secured the top spot at the ICC World Test Championship points table. India bested Australia by 3 wickets in the 4th Test at The Gabba as Rishabh Pant, Shubman Gill and others put on an eye-opening show to help their team win the final game. The win was even more impressive as the team was without their key players, including Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammad Shami and Umesh Yadav.
