In the name of defense Australians was pre judging Indian spinners on these kinds off beautiful spinning tracks, they are not defensing intelligently. Well it’s just a issue of mindset, but now Australia has lots of pressure to equal this series by winning the remaining two matches. Well Ashwin and Jadeja are looking like Waqar and Wasim of 90s to the Australian team.
Pujara said on the sweep shot, “If you look at this pitch, its not an ideal shot to play because of the low bounce. If there’s enough bounce I would’ve played that. If you can move your feet and get to the ball, that’s better on turning tracks.
Pujara on pitch, was it difficult? “Not really. You have to get used to the pace of the pitch. Some balls spun, some balls go straight. Once you played 30-40 balls, then it’s a good pitch to bat on.
India win by 6 wickets and rise in the series by 2-0
India kept the Border Gavaskar Trophy with this sensational win. For the last over Murphy has been asked to bowl, but Pujara hits a smashing shot over the midwicket for four. Australia looks like skill less in this series and India got to know that in very short time and if Indian bowlers notice that weakness then there is no place where you can save your wickets from them.
