Also, how would people compare this series win v

The Sri Lankan 2-0 test series win in 2019 v SA in SA?

If you take into account a disasterous first test, Kholi leaving the tour, Jadeja and Ashwin out for the last match, injuries and lack of experience of the team in the second half of the tour it's the best Indian win away from home in my memory and I've seen a lot of test matches  :)

To win away in Australia is up there as the hardest to achieve in world cricket, it's always special for us England fans to win in Oz(and hasn't happened that often) so it's the same for any team.

There are some holes in the Aussie batting line up but the bowling is strong, Indian have beaten a good team.

We drew the last Ashes series in England and I thought that was a good result, and we needed Stokes heroics to get that draw.

I'd suggest that this has to be one of the best away series wins in Test Cricket, right?

Given the circumstances...

Thats a tricky one. Certainly Indias best win in history. Is it the best in the history of the game across all teams? I would say no purely because of how close the two teams were ranked going into it. In terms of a real upset (based on mismatch of rankings), SL beating SA, 2-0, IN SA was probably a much bigger shock. I am sure there are plenty of others back in time - England beating India in India is perhaps another candidate... and am sure going back in time will yield more epic wins.
Either way, this one is right up there amongst the most epic.

Considering this was closer to a team of Indian reserves than first choice players it was a hell of a beating.

36 all out takes some coming back from.

I saw some of that Sri Lanka/SA series and to be fair im pretty sure they had their leading two bats Chandimal and Matthews missing aswell. Couple of fantastic knocks from Perera and Mendis 

But India only had 2 players from the first Test that played all series! Bowled Aus out twice at the Gabba with a rookie attack

The SL series win in SA was a far far bigger shock IMO.

They were the 1st ever Asian side to win a series in SA, the SA pace attack for that series was Steyn, Rababa, Philander, Olivier. And they had a full batting line up with everyone available.

Perera's 153 not out in the 1st test 2nd innings was an amazing knock to win the match.

India's win will go down in history no doubt due to winning at the Gabba with a 2nd string attack, but India's 2nd string  will always be quality and Australia's batting had been woeful barring Smith and Marnus.
