Aus vs Ind, 4th Test: A Statistical Review

Published Date:

Who would have thought that after getting bowled out for 36 in Adelaide, India would go on to beat Australia at their fortress Gabba where the hosts have remained unbeaten since 1988? Who would have thought that Rishabh Pant would strike the winning runs after getting dropped from the first Test match? The answer is no one! Test cricket witnessed an unfathomable turn around on Tuesday when India beat Australia in Brisbane to clinch the series 2-1.

The young Indian side made it their motto, “Bruised, broken. But never short of character!” This was stan-in skipper Ajinkya Rahane’s Tweet after the Sydney Test draw. With half the Indian side having played less than five Test matches, this victory will be remembered for days to come.

India found its heroes in each session on the fifth day of the fourth Test match to outplay Australia at their stranglehold. While Gill and Pant shone with their bats, Mohammed Siraj, T Natarajan rose to the occasion with the ball. Washington Sundar and Shardul Thakur showed how to belittle one of the fiercest bowling attacks when the team depended on them.

India’s Gabba heroics – in numbers:

  1. Australia lost in Brisbane after 31 Tests. They last lost a Test match at Gabba against West Indies in 1988. 
  2. The first time Australia have lost at the Gabba after taking the first innings lead.
  3. India became the first Asian side to win at the Gabba. 
  4. The third highest target successfully chased down by India in the fourth innings of a Test – 328.
  5. This is now the third highest successful chase against Australia in Australia.
  6. Fifth time India came back to win a series after losing the first Test of the rubber and the second time they did so away from home after winning 2-1 in Sri Lanka in 2015.
  7. Cheteshwar Pujara became the first Indian batsman to survive 200+ balls in an innings six times in Australia. He overcame five instances each by Sunil Gavaskar and Virat Kohli.
  8. Rishabh Pant’s 89 is the third highest score by an Indian wicketkeeper in the fourth innings of a Test.
  9. India’s 325 runs on the fifth day come after instances – Australia’s 404 vs England at Leeds in 1948 and West Indies’ 344 against England at Lord’s in 1984.
  10.  This is the fourth time India have ended Australia’s streaks – 
  • 16 consecutive Test wins – 2001 in Kolkata & 2008 in Perth.
  • First and only Asian side to win at WACA in 2008.
  • 19 consecutive ODI wins at home – 2016 in Sydney.
  • 32 years unbeaten at Gabba bw 1989 & 2020.
