Sydney Test: India miraculously hold Australia to a draw

Jan 11, 2021 13:15 IST

If it was a movie, Sydney Test would have been declared a blockbuster. India did the unthinkable and held Australia to a miraculous draw in Sydney as the 4-match Test series remains locked at 1-1 with one game left. Chasing 407, the visitors lost skipper Rahane early on day 5 but in walked Rishabh Pant and turned the game on its head. While he blasted 97 from one end, Cheteshwar Pujara dropped anchor at the other. They both got out in quick succession but it was Hanuma Vihari's turn to be a hero. He dug deep and played out 161 deliveries on literally one leg as he struggled with a hamstring injury. Great support from R Ashwin snatched victory from Australia as India played out 131 overs to end their 2nd innings at 334/5.
