Ajinkya Rahane: It means a lot to us. Don't know how to describe this victory. Proud of all the boys who showed attitude and character. Australia are a dangerous team, we just wanted to do our best.

When I went to bat, conversation between me and Pujara was for him to bat normal and I wanted to bat with intent. Credit to Pujara, the way he batted on this wicket was magnificent. Rishabh, Washington were really good in the end.

Taking 20 wickets was the key, that's why we went with 5 bowlers. Washington Sundar got that balance for us. All credit to them, Siraj has played two Tests, Saini and Shardul 1, Washington playing his first.

After Adelaide, we didn't discuss anything. It was a team effort. That was a key moment for us and I'm really happy for the team. I'd like to thank our fans who have come here.

From the Indian team, we'd like to give Nathan Lyon a signed jersey for playing 100 Tests.

Tim Paine: Absolutely disappointed. Came here to win the match and the series. In the key moments, we were completely outplayed by a discplined and tough Indian side who fully deserve to win. There's lots of things we look back at the series. We'll go through that as a group. Big series coming up against SA. Credit to India, we tried our absolute hearts out, but it wasn't to be.

13:25 (IST)

Man of the Match Rishabh Pant: One of the biggest moments for me. Happy and thanks to the team and all the fans who supported me even when I was not planning. Dream series for me. Team management always backs me, always tells me you're a match winner. That's what I think every day - that I want to win matches for India. Ball was turning a bit, thought I should be disciplined in my shot selection.

India vs Australia live score, IND 265-5: WICKET - Mayank Agarwal c Wade b Cummins. It's Cummins again, and Mayank Agarwal is gone to a rather loose shot. Looks to hit him on the rise over cover, ends up chipping a simple catch. Australia had burnt a review for a catch just the previous ball.

India vs Australia, Highlights, 4th Test at Brisbane, Day 5: India breach Australia's Gabba Fortress After 32 Years, Youngsters Shine

India vs Australia 4th Test Day 5 at Brisbane live score and latest update:India vs Australia live score, IND 329-7: INDIA WIN! India win the series 2-1. India breach fortress Gabba! What a sensational result for this Indian team that has battled every single obstacle. Who would have thought after the 36 all out in Adelaide? Who?! Fittingly, it’s Rishabh Pant who completes it with a boundary off Hazlewood. Don’t forget Cheteshwar Pujara. Don’t forget Shubman Gill. Don’t forget that little contribution from Washington Sundar. Don’t forget Mohammed Siraj, Shardul Thakur… don’t forget this Team India!

 

Mohammed Siraj picked up a maiden five-wicket haul as Australia set India a target of 328 in the fourth and final Test in Brisbane on Monday. At stumps, drawn early due to rain, on Day 4, India were 4 without loss. The Gabba cracks are opening up, but more rain is predicted for the fifth day, which could make it difficult for teams to enforce a result. For Australia, it was Steve Smith’s attacking half-century that stretched their lead even as India’s new-look bowling attack put its best foot forward through the day. The highest successful fourth innings chase at the ground is 236 by the West Indies, way back in 1951. Australia began the day 21 without loss and went on an aggressive mode straightaway, David Warner and Marcus Harris adding 40 in the first seven overs.

Warner (6×4) and Harris (8×4) hit 14 boundaries as Siraj and T Natarajan (14-4-41-0) erred in length during the first hour. The openers added 89 when finally, a sharp bouncer from Thakur ended Harris’ entertaining knock. He tried to sway away but the ball brushed his gloves on way to Rishabh Pant behind stumps. In the very next over, Warner, who was in sight of his first half-century of the series, was rapped on the backfoot by Washington who bowled one that kept straight. The opener ended up being cramped for room on the back-foot while going for the cut-shot. Labuschagne hit five boundaries and was in no mood to drop the tempo before Siraj bowled the ball of the session. Having been too short during the first spell, the delivery was on the off-stump and moved a shade before Rohit Sharma took a regulation catch at second slip. Two balls later, Matthew Wade was caught down leg side for nought as Siraj struck again.

The second session also witnessed fortunes swing as Smith attacked the Indian bowlers, found catches being dropped before three wickets kept the visitors’ spirits high. While Smith made a half-century, he was well supported by Cameron Green (37) while Tim Paine (27) and Pat Cummins (28*) made useful contributions too. At one stage, both Siraj and Thakur were competing for the five-wicket haul as both were one wicket away. In the end, Siraj got there with the help of Thakur, who took the final catch off Josh Hazlewood at third man to give Siraj a special moment. Chasing 328, India were 4 for no loss when rain arrived to put an end to proceedings.
