The free-moving Rishabh Pant has attacked Australia’s Gabba Fortress in a record-breaking manner, helping India grab an amazing three-port victory to get one of the greatest test series of the modern era.

Stoinen Cheteshwar Pujara refused to release India’s four-year Border-Gavaskar trophy on the dramatic final day of four test series.
Pujara’s vigilance set a record for 328 venues on Pant’s platform.
The voluptuous guard-striker did a remarkably light job of pressurized situation and raised the winning runs on the run boundary from Josh Hazlewood.
Pant placed 89 out and secured the win at 5.37pm (local time).
A one-generation loss can have long-term consequences – at least it has blurred Australia’s path to the finals of this year’s test race in the Lord.
It was a tiring and frustrating Tuesday for Tim Painen and the Australian attack.
Twilight, for many reasons, may linger in their minds longer than Head Stowley’s heartache caused by Ben Stokes in 2019.
The most successful division of the Gabba test was previously 7-236, which Australia completed in 1951, while this shock loss ended Australia’s 32-year unbeaten run at the scene.
Pat Cummins worked overtime for five days in the final test of the series, earning four of the first five dropped gates to give Australia a battle opportunity.
Cummins eliminated Pujara and Mayank Agarwal over seven with a spell on another new ball.
However, Pant vaporized Nathan Lyon and Josh Hazlewood’s debut with a quick fire in the Washington Sundar.
Pressure can curse a potential lost kick when Pant was 16, the decision-making system (DRS) and his team’s inability to close a series win in several situations after India had fallen to a record low in 36 Adelaide events.
There, questions are asked about Captain Painen, possible changes and the lack of Australian ruthlessness.
Praise should also be given to the inexperienced Indian XI who threw the kitchen sink against the hosts for refusing to buckle when it was seriously under the pump in countless situations in the final test of the series.
Australia, as happened in Sydney, failed to run through India on the field for five days.
Tourists had seven down teas, needing another 145 to drive from the last session.
Their winning equation was 69 runs from the last hour – not nearly enough to intimidate Pant.
