Indian cricket team stand-in captain Ajinkya Rahane and star batsman Rohit Sharma arrived in the city following their tour in Australia today.
Ajinkya Rahane led the Indian cricket team to a historic 2-1 win in the four-match Test series against the Aussies. Team India won the fourth and final Test at The Gabba in historic fashion by 3 wickets after they lost the first Test, won the second Test and drew the third.
The Gabba, which was also known as a fortress of the Australian team, was breached thanks to a superlative performance by Team India in what could be called as one of the most memorable Tests played. The Aussies were defeated at the Gabba for the first time since 1988.
