Ravichandran Ashwin on Australia’s Famous Gabba Win: “I Wanted A Draw,” said Ravi Shastri.
After defeating Australia by three wickets in the Gabba Test, India won the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2-1.
No one will forget how an injury-plagued India beat Australia in their own backyard against all odds in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in 2020-21. When India was bowled out for 36 in the Adelaide Test, many people predicted a whitewash, especially after Virat Kohli returned home to prepare for the birth of his child. However, under the leadership of Ajinkya Rahane, the team rallied to defeat Tim Paine’s side in Melbourne and Brisbane.
The four-match series was locked at 1-1 heading into the fourth Test, with the decider scheduled for Gabba, which Australia had not lost in a long time. India, on the other hand, pierced Australia’s fortress thanks to Rishabh Pant’s heroics, winning the series 2-1.
Pant hit an unbeaten 89 as India chased down a 328-run target.
