Indian Cricketer Ajinkya Rahane, before taking the trophy gifted Australian cricketer Nathan Lyon a signed t-shirt.
Excellent gesture from @ajinkyarahane88 and the indian team to Felicitate Nathan Lyon on his 100th Test Match. One more example of Sportsman Spirt from Rahane. How dignified he is even after achieving such a incredible win. #Leader #AUSvsIND— VVS Laxman (@VVSLaxman281) January 19, 2021

In an exciting, nail-biting finish, India beat Australia at its own bastion after 32 years. India managed to retain the Border-Gavaskar trophy. Rahane’s voice was drowned in the “Bharat Mata Ki Jai” chants that filled the stadium.
Further, as Pant hit the winning stroke, the stadium was filled with Vande Mataram song.
