Urging the country's youth to draw inspiration from Team India's historic test cricket victory at Australia's Gabba, clinched with less experienced players, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said India must fight back challenges with the same spirit. In a virtual address to the outgoing students of the Tezpur University, PM Modi drew parallels between the country's performance during the coronavirus pandemic and India's 2-1 series win, adding "our action-reaction instinct has changed".

Soon after the historic win, the Prime Minister has tweeted a congratulatory message appreciating the team's "remarkable energy, passion and grit". "In the beginning of the pandemic, people were apprehensive about what will happen, but the country showed resilience. We fought Covid with Made in India solutions," he said talking about India's home-grown vaccines that have the potential to "stop the pandemic". Our vaccines are the outcome of trust in our scientists, PM Modi said referring to Bharat Biotech's Covaxin and AstraZeneca's Covishield being made in Pune's Serum Institute of India.
