In the last couple of days, Indian and Australian cricket team players were locking horns in Australia to claim the trophy for Border–Gavaskar series. Even though the Indian team didn’t start on a good note, the Ajinkya Rahane-led team has finally managed to retain the trophy by winning the fourth and final Test against Australia.
Several well-known personalities and people alike flooded social media with praises and appreciations for the powerpack victory of the Indian team.

This is young India at work. Give them a stage and move out. Our generation thinks: don't lose. This one inhabits a different world. They see victory, opportunity.

While there have been several memorable moments from this series, an Australian team supporter cheering for India from the stands at the Gabba in Brisbane remains our favorite.

The video, which is apparently from the 4th day of the Test at the Gabba, shows an Aussie fan chanting ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ and ‘Vande Mataram’. You could also hear all the other spectators joining him in cheering for the Indian team.
We’re sure you would have goosebumps while watching it. Take a look:

This more than makes up for the allegedly racist incidents happened earlier.
