Brisbane Test: Selector Sunil Joshi hails India's 'epic win'

Brisbane, India on Tuesday became the first team to beat Australia at The Gabba in over 32 years when they defeated the hosts by three wickets in the fourth and final Test and clinched the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2-1.

Wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant starred with a swashbuckling 89 not out as the injury-depleted visitors overhauled the 328-run target with three overs to go, winning by three wickets.

Kohli played in that match, but missed the rest of the series after returning to India to be with his wife for the birth of their child.

Opener Shubman Gill posted 91 and Cheteshwar Pujara absorbed 11 blows to the body in his 211-ball 56 before Pant finished things off with a Twenty20-style batting assault.

Soon after India won at Gabba, legendary Indian cricketer Rahul Dravid started trending on social media as fans thanked the former India A coach for grooming India's future stars under his supervision. "Last hour of the last day of the last test. Test series for the ages".

Former India cricketer Snehal Pradhan tweeted, "In an office at the NCA in Bangalore, Rahul Dravid must be watching and feeling proud of the India A and India U19 programs he's developed, which gave India their depth".
