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.
No team scored more than 236-7 in the fourth half to win a Test match at GABA Stadium. India won 3 wickets and, with a total of 329-7, now replaces the 1951 Australian national team for that record.

Having never won a Test series on Australian soil until 2018-19, India has now done so twice in consecutive rounds of Down Under.
Opener Shopman Gil scored 91 hits, and Bogara absorbed no fewer than 11 strokes in his 211 ball. The four tests were tied 1-1, meaning India only needed a tie to retain the title.
