The International Cricket Council named the 2020-21 Border-Gavaskar Trophy match between India and Australia as the “Ultimate Test Series” on Tuesday (ICC).
“Ahead of the #WTC21 final, we set out to determine #TheUltimateTestSeries. After 15 head-to-heads and over seven million votes across our social channels, we have a winner… The 2020/21 Border-Gavaskar Trophy takes the crown,” the official handle of ICC tweeted.
The Border-Gavaskar Trophy for 2020-21 was a finalist, along with the 1999 series between India and Pakistan, and the former received the most votes in the end.
On the other hand, England and Australia met in the semi-finals of the 2005 Ashes series.
At the semi-final stage, the 2020-21 Border-Gavaskar Trophy was pick over the 2001 India vs Australia series.
The historic Kolkata Test, in which VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid produced a spectacular comeback to hand Sourav Ganguly’s side an unexpected victory, is remembered fondly from the 2001 series.
India defeated Australia for the first time in a Test match at The Gabba since 1988 in the 2020-21 series, winning the four-match series 2-1.
The last time a visiting team won at the Brisbane Cricket Ground was in November 1988.
