Twitter was abuzz with congratulations from across the world for an Indian side that broke Australia's 32-year unbeaten streak at the Gabba and made it back-to-back Test series wins down under.
"Just watching it from a cricketing fan's perspective, it was an amazing game of cricket, an incredible series. We certainly know how hard it is going over to Australia, and playing against them, they are a formidable side, but so are India and they had such a number of injuries and to show their depth and keep competing right to the end and come away with a series win very special for that side."
