‘We are all overjoyed at the success’: PM Modi congratulates Team India | Cricket News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: As a young and fearless Indian team created history at the Gabba, beating Australia at their fortress to seal the four-match series 2-1 in Brisbane, the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was one of the first to congratulate the team led by Ajinkya Rahane.
India retained the coveted Border-Gavaskar trophy with an emphatic three-wicket win in the fourth and final Test, as they successfully chased a 328-run target on the fifth and final day, becoming the first team since the West Indies in 1988 to beat Australia at the Gabba.

“We are all overjoyed at the success of the Indian Cricket Team in Australia. Their remarkable energy and passion was visible throughout. So was their stellar intent, remarkable grit and determination. Congratulations to the team! Best wishes for your future endeavours,” PM Modi wrote on his social media handle, to echo the mood of the nation.

Young wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant (89 not out off 138 balls) helped India end the home team’s 32-year-old unbeaten run at the ‘Fortress Gabba’. He was adjudged Man of the match for his heroic knock that took India to the stiff target of 328.

Overall, this series will be remembered forever for the fight and resilience shown by a severely depleted Indian team against a full strength Australian line-up to register just their second ever Test series win on Australian soil.
