With the writing on the wall, it was a matter of time before India reclaimed the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and won the series 2-1.
Australia tried their level best to make life difficult for the Indian batsmen and were successful to a certain extent. There were a couple of nervy moments when India lost two wickets in the same over. However, Ajinkya Rahane came out all guns blazing and ensured the smiles were back in the Indian camp.
Twitter had a field day and could not stop congratulating the Indian team after their series win over the Aussies by a 2-1 scoreline.
The winning moment- KL Rahul’s celebration says it all

End of a great great season for India. 10-1 and two draws in the 13 home tests. The pace bowlers have been the unsung heroes for me.

Lost 4 tosses vs England, won four Tests…lost three tosses vs Australia, won the series 2-1. Play well to make the toss irrelevant.
