Sachin and others hailed the Indian cricket team after winning the historic The Gabba Test. India not only managed to retain the Border Gavaskar Trophy but also win the four-match test series against Australia.
Team India scripted a famous win on the Gabba on the fifth day of the fourth test match of the series. This is the fifth instance when Team India won the series despite losing the first test match. The last series win after losing the first game was also against Australia. In 2016/17 Team India won the series by 2-1 (in India) after losing the first test match of the series.
This is India’s third-highest successful chase in the history of test cricket. The other two highest successful run chase by India are 387 runs against England in Chennai, and 406 runs against West Indies in 1975/76.
Team India also ended the 31 consecutive test win at a particular venue of Australia today (1989-2019). This series win also important because most of the Indian key players are not present to showcase their skills.
On the historic series win, Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly, and others hailed Team India.

EVERY SESSION WE DISCOVERED A NEW HERO.
Every time we got hit, we stayed put & stood taller. We pushed boundaries of belief to play fearless but not careless cricket. Injuries & uncertainties were countered with poise & confidence. One of the greatest series wins!
