‘When the chips are down, you push harder’: Team India celebrates historic series win on social media | Cricket News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: The 2-1 series win vs Australia was one of the most memorable Test series wins of all time for India, more so as they achieved it after shrugging off the humiliating defeat in the first Test in Adelaide and beat the Aussies in their own backyard despite multiple injuries to silence all their critics.
After the loss in Adelaide many former Australian cricketers felt India would be whitewashed.
But India roared back in Melbourne, held on in Sydney and then on Tuesday, the young Indian team ‘pushed harder when the chips were down’ and toppled the mighty Australians in their fortress – the Gabba to clinch the series 2-1 and retain the coveted Border Gavaskar trophy.
The members of the triumphant Indian team took to Twitter to celebrate their historic victory Down Under.
“When the chips are down. You push harder. A series we can never forget. Smiling face with heart-shaped eyes. Through the tough times we always believed and backed ourselves and this series win proves with belief you can achieve everything,” young wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant, who played a match-winning 89 not out in Brisbane, wrote on his social media handle. Pant was also adjudged Man of the match.

While skipper Virat Kohli, who left the team after Adelaide debacle on paternity leave, congratulated the team and wrote:”WHAT A WIN!!! Yessssss. To everyone who doubted us after Adelaide, stand up and take notice. Exemplary performance but the grit and determination was the standout for us the whole way. Well done to all the boys and the management. Enjoy this historic feat lads. Cheers.”
