Twitterati hails India for a historic win at MCG
Indian team and players are full of praises at the moment for their historic win against Australia by 137 runs in Melbourne Cricket Ground.
India are now in a commanding position in the four-match Test series against Australia with a lead of 2-1 after the end of three matches in the series. And they also retained the Border-Gavaskar trophy with them despite the result of the last Test in Sydney Cricket Ground.
With this win, India recorded their fourth win in the calendar year outside Asia and broke a 50-year record for most wins outside Asia in the longest format of the game. At the same time, Virat Kohli registered his 24th Test win as the captain exactly after 4 years of taking the full responsibility.
Also, this is the first win for India against Australia in a Boxing Day Test. Now Indians have a huge chance to register their first ever Test series win in the Australian soil.
Here are some wishes and celebrations for India after a historic win at MCG:
Incredible effort by #TeamIndia to take a 2-1 lead, especially @Jaspritbumrah93 who has played an instrumental role in this win. He has gone from strength to strength in all formats of the game. Definitely one of the best in the world today. #INDvAUS pic.twitter.com/vweoHd0nEE
