At least they got a lap of honour in front of a scattered but raucous crowd of supporters at the Gabba to soak up the significance of their stunning three-wicket win and series comeback, after getting rolled for just 36 runs to lose the first Test in Adelaide.

Vaughan also took his sentiments to Twitter, and was joined by a host of fellow Brits heralding India's triumph.

"The day when Fortress Gabba was stormed by a group of cavalier raiders who kicked down the draw bridge, stole the crown jewels and raced off into the late afternoon sunshine towards hysterical fans who will cherish the memory forever". This is also the fifth-highest successful chase in Australia. There have been several top-notch performers in this period, including Kusal Perera (153* against South Africa), Ben Stokes (135* versus Australia), Matthew Wade (117 against England), Fawad Alam (102 against New Zealand) and Pant (97 in Sydney and 89* in Brisbane).

This has been the team's approach right through the series, even when it lost one key player after another owing to injuries.

"Starcy is someone who, the way he bowls, he is going to come in for some criticism", Paine said. "I still don't know what happened and how to describe this victory", he said.

"We need someone who can swing the ball a bit, someone who can ask questions around LBW or bowled, not always looking to bounce batsmen out or get them caught behind". There's a lot of talk about Australia not being aggressive enough, but I don't agree with that.

"I think I've said this before - it's an Alastair Clarkson quote I heard many years before "it's never as bad as you think, and it's never as good as you think".

"They are seasoned bowlers and they've got through five".

After Australia won it by two wickets, Worrell presented Australian captain Richie Benaud with his cap, tie and blazer, along with the comments "I give Richie my scalp, my neck and my body".

Australia should look to bowlers such as the South Australian fast-medium pair Chadd Sayers and Daniel Worrall, who would add something different to the current three-pronged pace attack, said Taylor. Team India resumed on their overnight score of 4 for no loss Tuesday on the final day of the series, but suffered an early setback as they lost Rohit Sharma for only seven runs.
