Rahane: Sydney's draw vs Australia as good as a win

Jan 11, 2021 15:53 IST

Bruised, broken, but never short of character. That is how skipper Ajinkya Rahane described his side after India's remarkable resilience and fightback in Sydney. Though it will go down in history books as a draw, the game was a lot more than that. Despite an injury list growing to 9 and regular skipper Virat Kohli heading back home, India's remarkable effort to keep the Aussies in check in their own backyard speaks volumes about them. Chasing a mammoth 407 in the last 4 sessions of the Test, not many gave the visitors a fighting chance but Rahane's men proved their doubters wrong by playing out 131 overs to stun the Aussies.
