india vs australia 2nd test match

In what turned out to be one of the most fascinating Tests in the recent times, India shot down Australia for 112 to seal a 75-run win. Australia dominated the first day before spirited Indian fightback helped them claw their way back in the Test. At the end of third day, Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara helped India edge ahead but it was Josh Hazlewood’s six-wicket haul that gave Australia a chance to seal the series.

After the hard-earned win, here’s what Indian skipper Virat Kohli had to say:

“Especially after the way we lost the first Test, we wanted to prove ourselves. Today the boys showed their heart and character along with the crowd. A couple of the sessions were game changing. The moment they did not get big runs in the first innings, we knew we had a chance. The wicket has been relaid. It exactly panned out the way we wanted.”

“After conceding the lead, it was a champion partnership (between Pujara and Rahane). The two of our best Test batsmen applied themselves. The knock from Wriddhi (man) and the way Ishant batted was a bonus as well. Ranchi is going to be very competitive. We can’t wait to get there. Hopefully, we can take the momentum forward and never look back.”

KL Rahul is named the man of the match for showing passion in scoring 90 and 51 in the first and second innings. Ravichandran Ashwin who picked up two in the first innings came back strongly in the second innings to register 6 wicket.
