"What we can do?" - Pat Cummins responds to Washington Sundar naming his pet dog 'Gabba'
Washington Sundar hogged the limelight in the wake of a sensational batting performance against Australia at The Gabba in Brisbane. When India were in all sorts of trouble, the youngster held his nerves and played an exceptional brand of cricket alongside his partner Shardul Thakur.
Both the cricketers drew plaudits from every nook and corner of the cricket fraternity for putting the team in the pole position. The duo added a crucial 123-run stand that helped Team India claw their way back into the game. Sundar and Thakur scored a half-century apiece and helped India post 336 in the first innings.
Washington Sundar had a dream debut at Australia's fortress as he scored 62 runs with the help of 7 boundaries and 1 hit over the fence. He looked good even after scoring a half-century and was en route to scoring a century but was dismissed by Mitchell Starc. Sundar's father expressed his frustration after his son missed out on scoring a century.
India chased down 328 at The Gabba and became the first team to beat Australia in Brisbane after 32 years. It was Rishabh Pant who hit the winning runs in the form of a boundary. India won the game by 3 wickets and clinched the Test series by 2-1, in what was India's historic second consecutive Test series win in Australia.
