India has defeated Australia in the fourth Test series by winning the final test of the series in a record run-chase and hand Australia their first defeat at Brisbane’s Gabba ground since 1988 and clinch the series 2-1.

The visitors has defeated the hosts on Tuesday in the fourth Test in Brisbane due to the heroic efforts of wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant. He tarred with 89 not out as the injury-depleted visitors overhauled the 328-run target with three overs to go, winning by three wickets.

In Queensland, India mowed down 145 runs after tea to claim the win when the wicketkeeper smashed Josh Hazlewood to the long-off fence for four with 18 balls to spare.

Rishabh Pant said, after being named Man of the Match, that this is one of the biggest moments of his life now. He said, “I’m happy that all the support staff and all my team mates supported me even when I wasn’t playing. It’s been a dream series. It was a fifth-day pitch and the ball was turning a bit. I thought I have to be disciplined with my shot selection.”
