The official Twitter handle of Cricket Australia's digital content team, @cricketcomau, shared a video of India debutant Washington Sundar hitting Mitchell Starc with a caption, which read: "Washington looks the part!" as the fourth and final Test at The Gabba, Brisbane witnessed a stunning fightback from the injury-ravaged visitors.

And that tweet tells only half the story.

India lost their top order in a hurry, then Sundar and Shardul Thakur resurrected their innings with a brilliant seventh-wicket stand, which at the time of filing the story was nearing hundred runs -- against one of the best-ever pace attack in cricket history.

During his knock, Sundar played some exquisite shots including that one against Starc. Watch it here:

Here are some reactions:

Sundar, who was not even in the pecking order when the tour started, has now produced an all-round performance that would make even the greatest all-rounders of the game proud.

Australia were dismissed for 369 in their first innings with Sundar and another debutant Thangarasu Natarajan taking three wickets each.

This is a winners' take all match with the series tied at 1-1.
