Even before the start of the match, Rahane had a look at the innings 6-7 times. The Indian captain ended scoring a memorable 112 as India won the MCG Test by eight wickets. The win was highly commendable coming in the wake of the embarrassing 36 all out in the first Test at Adelaide.

With this win, not only did India break the Aussie’s “invincible at Gabba” tag that they held for 32 years, they also registered their third highest run chase ever, and they also got rid of their Adelaide 2014 demons. The fact that they did it without Kohli, Ishant, Shami, Bumrah, Ashwin and Jadeja makes it even more special.

He also stated that Australia learned a harsh lesson from the stinging defeat - never underestimate the tough players from India.

Shubman Gill (91), Rishabh Pant (89 not out) and Cheteshwar Pujara (56) were the major contributors as the Aussies were stunned at their fortress, losing their first Test match at the Gabba since 1988. Following the massive triumph, Indian captain Ajinkya Rahane was left almost speechless as India retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy with a 2-1 triumph.

Thakur and Sundar featured in a record 123-run stand for the seventh wicket as India recovered from 186 for 6 to post a competitive 336.

After gifting his wicket away after getting his eye in twice at the SCG, Rohit Sharma did the same on Saturday at the Gabba. The Indian captain eased his way to 44 before playing a terrible shot to get out to Nathan Lyon.
