India vs Australia: If India win at Gabba, this will be their greatest Test series victory ever-Shoaib Akhtar

After Team India’s gallant effort to draw the Sydney Test match, the Border-Gavaskar Trophy is nicely set up for the finale in Brisbane in two days time, and former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar feels that the historic series is now set up for India to win.

Akhtar also added that after the valiant efforts in the Sydney Test, where India batted out 131 overs in the fourth innings to survive the game, if the visitors go on to win in the Brisbane Test, then this will be their greatest Test series win ever, and probably one of the best Test series win in the history of the game.

“Now at the final stages (of the series), I think India have got it in them to win this series. Again, a last little push, where they will face issues, they have several injury concerns, but the Indian bench strength has to believe that they can do it, they need to give one last effort and they can win the series.

“If from this point onwards, India goes on to win this series, then that will be a big big victory. According to me, it will be the biggest series win in Test history.

“Again, if India win this, and I think that they are going to win it, then this will be one of the finest Test series that India could have ever played or could play in the next week or so.

“I think all credit goes to India because they have shown a lot of guts, a lot of guts. The whole team, spinner, tailenders, fast bowlers, Bumrah has put in all his energy, even got himself injured, but did not let the series slip away,” Shoaib Akhtar said on his Youtube channel.

Ravichandran Ashwin and Hanuma Vihari, despite getting injured in the game, batted out an entire session and played 289 deliveries between the two of them to draw the third Test match in Sydney.
