Brisbane: Former Pakistan fast bowler Waseem Akram has praised Team India for their outstanding performance in the Test series against Australia. India defeated Australia by three wickets in the fourth and final Test of the series at The Gabba on Tuesday to win the series 2–1.
Akram, who is counted among the best bowlers of all time, said that he has never seen such a courageous, brave and patient Asian team on a difficult tour of Australia before. Akram tweeted saying, "Never before have I seen such a courageous, brave and patient Asian team on a difficult tour of Australia. No difficulty could stop this team, the players got injured, and in the first Test scored only 36 runs, the team came back strongly and won the series. Inspirational victory for others. Congratulations Team India. "
The Australian team had not lost any match in Gaba for the last 32 years. Earlier in 1988, the West Indies team led by Viv Richards defeated the Australian team led by Ellen Border by 9 wickets in Gaba.
