R. Ashwin and Hanuma Vihari exhibited great resilience and grit as India pulled off a remarkable draw in a tense and thrilling third Test against Australia on Monday.
Against a hostile Australian attack, India resumed at 99 for the loss of two wickets requiring 309 runs to win. At close, India finished at 334 for the loss of five wickets. The series now heads to Brisbane where the decider will be played with both the teams locked 1-1.
“Our talk coming this morning was to show character and fight till the end. Not to think about the result. Really happy with the way we fought especially today but also throughout the game, even in the first innings when Australia were 200 for 2 and getting them all out for 338 was really good,” India skipper Rahane said.
