On Tuesday, Team India completed a historic Test series win Down Under. The hosts were baffled by the visiting party at their fortress, thus ending their 33-year long unbeaten streak at the Gabba. With valuable contributions from both the batsmen and bowlers, India won the Border Gavaskar Trophy for the third consecutive time.

Wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant played an unbeaten knock of 89 in the fourth innings of the 4th Test, which ensured the victory for the men in blue. The 23-year-old has always seen former India captain MS Dhoni as his cricketing idol. Now Twitteratis and Journalists are comparing Pant to captain cool for his ability to play a crucial role when the team needs. 

"You feel amazing when you are compared to someone like MS Dhoni and you compare me with him," he told reporters on return from Australia.

"It's amazing but I don't want to be compared with anyone, I want to make myself a name in Indian cricket because it's not good to compare some legend with some youngster," he added.

This win will surely go down the history books as one of India's finest Test matches overseas. Pant also said that the whole team is delighted with the result and credits to everyone because it was a collective performance that brought the glory.

"I think the whole team is very happy with the way we played the series in Australia," he said.
