Tim Paine hails Team India after historic Australia victory

Team India etched the name in the record books after scripting history at The Gabba. The Australian fortress was breached after Ajinkya Rahane & Co won the Test by 3 wickets. Before the fourth Test, Australia maintained a magnificent track record of not losing a single Test since 1988.

However, Team India came up with better plans, strategy and outsmarted the Australian side in Brisbane. India chased down the target of 328 with the help of Shubman Gill’s 91, Cheteshwar Pujara’s 56 and more importantly Rishabh Pant’s unbeaten 89*.

Pant was named the man of the match for his match-winning knock. On the other hand, Pat Cummins was named the man of the series for his total tally of 21 wickets in the four-match Test series. This is the second time India secured a Test series win in Australian soil.

During India’s previous visit to Australia, Virat Kohli & Co scripted 2-1 series win in Australia as India secured their first Test series win for the first time in 71 years.

Tim Paine hails Team India

After a heartbreaking series defeat at the hands of India, Australian Test skipper praised Team India for showing great character and attitude on the pitch.

“We were here to win the series, but we have just been outplayed by a disciplined and tough Indian side who fully deserve the series win. We have to look back over a lot of things, and we’ll go through it as a group, and we have been outplayed by a better side this series. There are many areas of improvement honestly. We wanted to set a bit over 300 and dangle a carrot for them to win the series.

I thought India turned up today, wore balls on the head arm and chest, put their body in the line, so credit to them, they deserve the win. Keeping is a part of my job, and I have to get them right. Our bowlers did really well as well, it’s just credit to the Indian side for this terrific series.” Paine said after India beat Australia by 3 wickets at The Gabba.

Pant who was named the man of the match said that it was one of the biggest days of his life. “This is one of my biggest days in life. The support the team has given me even when I was not playing has been incredible. It’s a dream come true. We’ve been practising hard after the first Test.

The team management always backs me and tells me you are match-winner and you have to go out there and win and I am happy I did it today. It was a fifth-day pitch and the ball was turning,” Pant added.
