IND VS AUS
What a historic match! Team India saved the 3rd Test in Sydney Cricket Ground. This draw is more than a win and the architect of this feat are Hanuma Vihari, R. Ashwin, Rishabh Pant & Cheteshwar Pujara. This is the beauty of Test Cricket, and Indian team has proved yet again, why they are considered one of the best.
Win or lose is a part of game, but what matters is the intent, passion & fight back attitude. Team India have today showed the world, that this is new India & they are not willing to give up at any cost. The way Indian batsman fought back today, with all the injuries and pain in their body, is being applauded by Twitteratis.
Whether it’s Rishabh Pant aggressive knock of 97 runs or Cheteshwar Pujara’s 77 runs. Both the batsman showed hope to 1.3 Billion people. The temperament of the Indian batsman forced the Australian bowlers and Captain to think. But after the set batsmen departed, Hanuma Vihari & R. Ashwin’s fighting knock stole the show.
Hanuma Vihari with his one leg & Ashwin bearing all the sledge from the opponent, saved the Test match for India. This is an answer to all the spectators & critics of the team. However, Australian captain Tim Paine also played a big role in making this possible. The Australian wicketkeeper dropped 3 catches in today’s play, that too at crucial moments. This game will go down the history, as one of the best fight backs.
Hanuma Vihari’s 23 runs and Ashwin’s 39 runs may seem to be a small score, but the impact both the batsman created on the play can’t be justified by the numbers. Both the batsmen together spent more than 3 hours, in the middle.
The likes of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon had to finally give up infront of these two strong forces. This match will surely boost the morale and confidence of the team.
Twitter is flooded with appreciation tweets for Indian team. Here are few of the tweets:

Hi, just your reminder that if Cheteshwar Pujara had not spent as much time batting in the first innings as he did, India would still have had a lot more overs to survive. #INDvAUS
