Gabba has once again witnessed a nail-biting Test day as the fourth match continues between the homesitters Australia and the guests India. This time, the terrific partnership on the seventh wicket, that took place between Washington Sundar and Shardul Thakur, is breaking the internet.
Everyone heaps praise on the duo as India has successfully chased 336 in the first innings. The duo stunned when the men in blue were struggling at 186 with 6 wickets parted. Both of them smashed some crucial runs to the Kangaroos’ bowlers.
The frustrated Aussies finally broke the partnership on a 123-run stand but later, Mohammad Siraj has prepared some tactics to disturb the bowlers once again until reaching 336.

Extremely impressed with the fighting attitude shown by @Sundarwashi5 and @imShard. They have symbolised what India has been in this series, consistently punching above their weight. It is so satisfying to see.
