Mumbai: In a hictoric victory, India defeated Australia by three wickets against all odds in the final Test of the series at The Gabba on Tuesday to take the series 2-1. After breaching the Gabba fortress, Indian cricketers Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Prithvi Shaw, and Team India's coach Ravi Shastri arrived in Mumbai on Thursday.
The players will be facilitated by Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA). Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) president Vijay Patil, said, ""Our apex body will soon have a meeting and we will decide on felicitating our players and team who performed exceptionally well in Australia. We are also trying to find a suitable time before the England series to felicitate players."
Hero of the victory, Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant played an unbeaten inning of 89 runs in the fourth innings of the Gabba Test as India chased down the total of 328. This is the highest chase recorded at the Gabba, Brisbane. As India won the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, BCCI also announced a cash bonus of Rs 5 crore. What makes the feat even more commendable is how the Indians fought multiple injuries and mental fatigue - due to the bio-bubble restrictions -- to register a historic win. This win has also ensured they toppled Australia in the ICC Test Team Rankings to claim the second spot. Rohit and Rahane will now be seen in action when India lock horns with England in the Test series in February.
