Twitter hails Team India for the ” comeback of the decade ” as India wins the Boxing Day Test by 8 wickets

India scripted a fairytale comeback at the MCG as they hold their nerves to win the Boxing Day Test on the 4th day by 8 wickets. The day had begun with a quiet anticipation and a sense of India doing something historical but there were doubts everywhere considering how India got bundled up on 36 in Adelaide. India didn’t make the same mistake again and as soon as the winning runs were hit, Twitter erupted with joy to hail Team India and label the win as the ” comeback of the decade “.

Earlier in the morning, India had to toil hard and it took them two and a half hours to pick 4 remaining Australian wickets although at no point, they lost the grip of the match. Australians showed a lot of resilience when it came to protecting their wickets but they found it hard to score freely. Once Bumrah broke the partnership between Paine and Cummins, the writing was on the walls for Aussies.

After early hiccups, India chased the target of 70 quite convincingly to win the Melbourne Test and level the series 1-1 as of now. Ajinkya Rahane was adjudged as the player of the match for his wonderful century in the first inning. People took to twitter to celebrate the win and appreciate team India’s fighting spirit along with the captaincy of Ajinkya Rahane.

Here are some of the best reactions to the victory :

Both teams will now enjoy few days off and celebrate the new year’s break as the next test is scheduled to start on 7th January. However, with the current border lockdown situation due to COVID-19, there is still uncertainty over the venue for the 3rd Test.
