The 3rd Test between Australia and India in Sydney ended in a draw, leaving the 4-match series tied at 1-1
Rishabh Pant made 97 as India reached 334/5 in their 2nd innings, chasing 407 for victory, at close of play on the final day.
Praises pour in for Hanuman Vihari and Ashwin for hanging in there to eke out a draw as the players shake hands with just six balls remaining of the mandatory over. Vihari was applauded for showing grit and fight despite suffering a hamstring injury early in his innings. ” A brilliant 5 days of a Test match, a true entertainment. We have seen rain, run scoring, collapse, dropped catches, fightback, resilience and what not. Australia would be the disappointed of the two sides as they let the game slip from the point where they could have had the result in their favour,” Were the words by cricket critics.
It was a A moral victory for India going ahead into the final Test.
