India chased down 328 in the final Test to end Australia’s 32-year unbeaten run at the Gabba, Brisbane. The BCCI announced a Rs 5 crore bonus for the Indian cricket team after they won the fourth and final Test against Australia to retain the Border-Gavaskar trophy. BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Secertary Jay Shah tweeted within minutes of each other to make the annoucement of a bonus.
“Just a remarkable win…To go to Australia and win a test series in this way..will be remembered in the history of indian cricket forever ..Bcci announces a 5 cr bonus for the team ..The value of this win is beyond any number ..well done to every member of the touring party,” Ganguly tweeted.
The three-wicket win at the Gabba on the final day meant that India have won an unprecedented back-to-back Test series Down Under. Rishabh Pant led the chase with his aggressive yet mature unbeaten 89 while Shubman Gill scored 91.
