Team India Registers Historic Win Over Australia
The win over Australia is none short than a historic feat. Australia were beaten for the first time in 32 years at the Gabba. The Australian Cricket Team had been unbeaten in the last 32 games at the Gabba and the Indian cricket team broke this record too. This was India’s third-highest successful run chase in Test cricket.
Now, the Indian Cricket Team will take on England in the Test series from February 5 at home. The Indian selection committee will choose the team for the first two Tests on Tuesday.
