Captain Ajinkya Rahane leads India to a comfortable victory against Australia in the second test to level the Border-Gavaskar series 1-1. Rahane was also awarded the man of the match for his brilliant batting.
Australia had decided to bat but couldn’t manage to score more than 195 in the first innings. Thanks to captain Rahane’s century India scored 326 and then bowled out Australia for 200. The target was 70 runs which India chased down with eight wickets in hand.
India looked in control for most part of the game and didn’t give the Aussies a second chance to make a comeback.
After their dismal performance in the first test against Australia in which India were bowled out for 36 runs in the second innings and set a target of 90 which the Aussies chased easily, this has been a good comeback.
This victory is special as India didn’t have Captain Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ishant or Shami at their disposal.
