Australia v India: Rishabh Pant leads India to hit series win over Australia in Gabba

Cheteshwar Pujara took the hits and Rishabh Pant hit an unbeaten 89 as India chased a record-breaking Border-Gavaskar Cup win with three big sums and three wickets to spare on the final day of the series.

Injury-affected India played without fear, ending Australia’s undefeated run in GABA dating back to 1988.

India on Tuesday restarted four times without a loss and had 98 raises to chase the 328-goal winning goal or three full club sessions to save the toss it needed to hold the Border-Javascar Cup.
