India's limited-overs opener Shikhar Dhawan celebrated Team India's Test series win by 2-1 in Australia. He danced on Bollywood song 'Omkara' and shared the clip with fans on Instagram.

Ajinkya Rahane-led India won the final Test at the Gabba and defeated Australia by three wickets. They retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2020-21 and also ended Australia's 32-year-long unbeaten streak at the Gabba.

"Dedicated to the Indian team for today's victory. #champions #victory," read the caption on Dhawan's post.

It took a strong batting performance from India on day five at Gabba to chase down the remaining 324 runs after ending the fourth day on 4/0. Shubman Gill scored 91 runs after his opening partner Rohit Sharma was dismissed early. It took Rishabh Pant's unbeaten 89 runs to finish the chase successfully. 

Cheteshwar Pujara's half-century also played a role in making history. He made sure India don't lose wickets from one end and at one point they have the option to go for the win. After a partnership between Pujara-Gill (114 runs) to keep India in the chase, the quick runs added by Pant-Washington Sundar (53) ensured the victory. 

Australia's last defeat in Brisbane came against West Indies in 1988. They were undefeated at The Gabba in their last 31 games having won 24 and drawn seven matches.
