After losing the first test match to Australia, India pulled off a famous win against the Australians in Bangalore on Tuesday. The four match test series is now tied at 1-1 with two more matches to be played.
It was a test that didn’t begin too well for India with the team getting out for just 189 runs. Indian bowlers managed to get the Australians out for 276, and Indian batsmen such as Cheteshwar Pujara (92 runs) and Ajinkya Rahane (52 runs) managed to establish a 187 run lead for India. On the fourth day, the Australians came in to bat and began comfortably before Ravichandran Ashwin and the rest of the Indian bowlers struck.
Ashwin went on to pick up six wickets and was well supported by bowlers Umesh Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja and Ishant Sharma. By the end of the day, India had won the series by 75 runs.
With both teams competing tremendously, there should be some exciting cricket ahead at Ranchi where the third match will be played.
