Indian cricket team chased 328 to win the 4th Test on the final day of the match and series on Tuesday. India is the first team to beat Australia at The Gabba since the West Indies in 1988. It's also India's maiden win at the venue.

Rishabh Pant starred with a swashbuckling 89 not out as the injury-depleted Indian team overhauled the 328-run target with three overs to go, winning by three wickets.

Shubman Gill scored 91 runs to set up a thrilling hour of play on either side of the Lunch break, before Ajinkya Rahane joined Cheteshwar Pujara. Shubman Gill fell nine runs short of his maiden Test hundred, skipper Ajinkya Rahane departed after a brisk 24 but Cheteshwar Pujara endured blows to the body and fought on with Rishabh Pant for company to keep India in the hunt to register back-to-back series wins on Australian soil at The Gabba on Tuesday.

Brief Score:

India 336 & 329/7 in 97 overs (Gill 91, Pant 89, Pujara 56, Cummins 4/55, Lyon 2/85) beat Australia 369 & 294/10 in 75.5 overs(Smith 55, Warner 48, Harris 38, Siraj 5/73, Shardul 4/61 Shundar 1/80) by 3 wickets.
