Sunil Gavaskar believes that India can defeat the hosts in their fortress in the final Test. Australia always look forward to playing at the Gabba as the pitch completely suits their style of play. Because of pace and bounce on the surface, the Australian fast bowlers will easily pressure the visitors in the 4th Test.

The former Indian captain also highlighted that Australia has some excellent record at the venue. He also mentioned that Ajinkya Rahane and team have what it takes to defeat them in Brisbane.

The Gabba stadium is widely known as Australia's fortress as the hosts haven't lose a single Test match there since 1988. India's best result was a draw in December 2003.

If India wins this series, it would be ranked as one of the best wins: Sunil Gavaskar

Gavaskar feels that the current team has shown that they perform at their best when their backs are against the wall. He was gratified with the way the team performed on the last of the Sydney test. Sunil Gavaskar praised the young batsman Rishabh Pant and Cheteshwar Pujara who stood tall and batted brilliantly.

He highlighted that apart from their pace attack, the hosts have struggled to find a solid opening combination. However, the Indian side finally succeeded on that part with Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill.

Sunil Gavaskar labelled it as one of the most famous fightbacks in Indian cricket history. He also stated that it was a perfect gift for Rahul Dravid on his birthday. The Border-Gavaskar Trophy results firmly hang in the balance, as the series equal at 1-1. With one last face-off left, Sunil Gavaskar believes that India can win the series 2-1.  The men in blue would be at the top of my list when it comes to performing in overseas conditions, especially considering the opposition's quality.

The Indian cricket team lost several players to injury before and during the tour. However, the visitors have still managed to perform admirably in the absence of skipper Virat Kohli and batsman KL Rahul. Team India should be more confident about winning in the Brisbane Test, especially after their brilliant Sydney performance. The side knocked the wind out of the Australians in the third Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
