Social Media Celebrates With Memes & Wishes After India’s Historic ‘Gabba’ Win

Injury-ravaged Team India with sheer grit and resilience defeated Australia in the fourth and last Test match of the Border Gavaskar trophy. Heroics of Pujara, Gill, and Pant helped the visitors to overhaul the target of 328 on the last day of the Test match.

The victory at Gabba is also pivotal as it comes after Adelaide’s debacle where India was reduced to 36 runs, the record lowest for the visitors in the longer format of the game.

It took 32 years and two months, but the unthinkable has been achieved as a young Indian team beat the home side by three wickets against all odds in the final Test of the series at The Gabba to take the series 2-1.

Wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant will be forgiven for all the mistakes he has made through the series with wicket-keeping gloves in hand as each of the 89 runs that he scored in the final hour on Tuesday was worth its weight in gold.

It was only poetic justice that he hit a boundary to win India a thriller. The last time a visiting team came out triumphant from the Brisbane Cricket Ground was back in November 1988 when the mighty West Indian outfit under the leadership of Viv Richards thrashed Allan Border’s team by 9 wickets. What makes the feat even more commendable is how the Indians fought multiple injuries and mental fatigue due to the bio-bubble restrictions to register a historic win.

The scoreboard witnessed India’s bravery on a difficult pitch to bat on. Cheteshwar Pujara faced 211 balls to score crucial 56 runs. It was also his slowest in the longest format of the game off 196 deliveries. By the second session of Day 5, the veteran had already suffered multiple nasty blows to his head, including a bouncer by pacer Josh Hazlewood that ended up knocking off a piece of the batsman’s helmet.

The story of India’s success was narrated by two other batsmen – Opener Shubman Gill and Rishabh Pant. Gill played 146 deliveries for his 91. Former Indian batsman VVS Laxman praised his gritty knock and said that he deserved a hundred.

Social Media Buzzing

From Prime Minister Narendra Modi to BCCI Chief Sourav Ganguly – everyone has been vocal about India’s historic win on the social media platform.

Indian team faced brutal blows not only from the Australian bowlers but also from their veterans. The visitors were massively trolled after the Adelaide collapse. Social media is in full flow with banters, memes, tweets hailing Indian players for the courage they have shown at the Gabba.
