The Indian team performed brilliantly and defeated Australia 2–1 in the Test series and retained the Border-Gavaskar trophy. The Indian team was congratulated by many veterans after the resounding victory in the fourth Test match at Brisbane’s Gaba on Tuesday. Congress leader Shashi Tharoor was also included in this list, who wrote an English word that only a few people could understand.
Before the start of this 4-match Test series, many former cricketers had said that India would lose badly in the series but no one had expected that it would be wonderful to defeat Australia once again in their home. When Team India named the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, Indian cricket fans trolled those former cricketers a lot. Congress MP Shashi Tharoor also trolled Australia in his trademark style.
Expressing happiness over the series win, Tharoor posted his ‘Word of the Day’ Epicaricacy on Twitter. He wrote, ‘Epicaricity, I am not a riot type, but today I am very happy to read these comments.’
This word means to get pleasure from the misfortune of others or such an act.

At the time of the start of the Test series between India and Australia, many felt that the visiting team would not win a match this time. India’s troubles were further aggravated when many of its star players got injured in the middle series. Virat Kohli returned home on Paternity Leave, Ajinkya Rahane again took command. Team India again not only won 2 matches showing amazing spirit, but also achieved a new record by beating Australia for the second time in a row.
