Right then. What a heart-throbbing or a heartbreaking end to this Test match - depending on which side you are on. Sets up the rest of the series nicely. India are still favourites to win the series but the Aussies' second innings effort showed that they might just stretch the tourists a bit. How much will this drain both sides? The second Test is not far away, scheduled to start on Friday, December 14, 2018 in Perth at 10.20 am local (0220 GMT). Will be interesting to watch, especially the beginning. Do join us for that. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
Man of the Match, Cheteshwar Pujara says that he has played here before and that helped. Preparation is the most important thing, adds Pujara. Says that the way they came back in the game was the most important thing. Credits the bowlers for gaining the psychological lead and also lauds the partnerships in the second innings. Talks about the self belief in the team which helps a lot. Tells that he always backs his ability. On batting overseas, Pujara replies that there is always pressure to perform and they already showed improvement in the second innings. On his father's role in shaping his career, Che smiles and says that he means a lot and he's the one who coached him initially and always believed in him.
Victorious Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, is smiling and says that these things happen in Test cricket (talking about the close finish), ups and downs and you need to just keep calm. Adds that the odds were stacked against Australia and they were under pressure. Says that he told his bowlers to stay calm as they needed just one mistake to win the match. He is super proud of his four bowlers for taking 20 wickets and feels that it's their batting which needs to step up in this series. Calls the knock of Pujara priceless as that brought them back in the game. States that any lead was crucial and they built on it. Praises Pujara and Rahane's stand in the second innings says that it took a lot of grit and determination from them. Adds that their lower and lower middle order can put up a better show and these are the things they want to keep in mind going forward. He is looking forward to Perth Test and considers the momentum to be on their side.
Australian skipper, Tim Paine, says that the loss is shattering but he is proud of the fight. Admits that they had a number of opportunities but failed to capitalize. Mentions that they believed they can win this but their batsmen didn't score big. He's sad that he, Head and Marsh didn't bat long. Praises Pujara for his batting and calls his knocks the difference as they took a lot out of his bowling group. Feels that they can still win this Test series and is taking a lot of confidence from today. Signs off by hoping that the top order will take a leaf out of Pujara's book and fire in Perth. Informs that his finger is fine (took a blow while batting).
Rishabh Pant gives a quick interview near the boundary line. He admits that they were nervous as Australia were coming close. Adds that he is very happy to contribute to the win (took 11 catches in the match). Smiles and says that this is his sixth Test match and coincidentally also India's sixth Test win in Australia. States that that he enjoys chirping behind the wickets and disturb the batsmen's concentration. Stay around for the presentation.
One criticism from India's point of view was that the field was way too defensive in spite of the Aussies not playing their strokes. Even the lengths were more on the shorter side, which could have seen more of a mixture. However, in the end, Bumrah, Ashwin and Shami took 3 wickets each, which was too much to handle for the home side. Do not forget Ishant Sharma, who, in spite of picking just a solitary wicket, was hostile. He was the one who dismissed Travis Head this morning - had that not happened - who knows who would have been 1-0 up. Please stay tuned for the presentation.
They say that when Australia and New Zealand play cricket, it is never over till it is actually over. The Aussies made India toil so much that they struggled to dismiss even the last pair cheaply. 41, 31, 41, 31 and 32 - the last 5 wickets added 176 runs. Consumed 379 balls. The first 5 played out 340 deliveries. Great grit and determination shown but eventually, India were collectively better as a unit.
That late collapse from India in the second innings meant that Australia got an outside chance chasing 323. At one stage, they might have been expecting 400-450. They came out grittily, trying to see off the good balls but slowly but surely, the clock kept ticking. At the end of Day 4, India needed 6 wickets, while Australia needed 219 runs. Game over? Naah....
Australia came in with the thought of making 400. On a flat Adelaide track. They scraped to 235, that too, because of their lower order. Building on the 15-run lead, the Indians then batted better in their second dig but threw it away as well, as they folded from 282/5 to 307 all out. Nathan Lyon did take a 6-fer but most of those were gifted wickets.
Adelaide Oval is kind to India more often than not and it has not disappointed the visitors. They did not start in a great fashion though, being reduced to 41/4 and then 127/6. But Cheteshwar Pujara hung around to take the tourists to 250. Boy, didn't that turn out to be enough.
Phew! What a Test match. What a day. Started with the prospect of welcoming my milkman after the fall of the final wicket. That was at 6 am. Then, we thought we shall never have a second session. Eventually, we were just a ball away from having a third session on Day 5. Fantastic Test.

Ravichandran Ashwin To Josh Hazlewood OUT!
OUT! Caught at second slip! INDIA HAVE WON! Kohli is pumped up. The entire playing XI is pumped up. Or the playing XIII? Because Jadeja and Vihari are in the field as well. Full and outside off, Hazlewood looks to drive but gets a thick outside edge. It flies straight to Lokesh Rahul at second slip who takes it and immediately throws it up in the air in jubilation. Spare a thought for Josh Hazlewood. Spare another thought for Nathan Lyon. Ashwin does spare that thought and goes across to hug Lyon, congratulating him. Great to see such scenes. Ecstasy and disappointment along with sportsmanship. INDIA WIN BY 31 RUNS!

CLOSE CALL FOR LBW BUT ISHANT HAS OVERSTEPPED! So close. So, so close. Full and straight, Lyon misses his flick, getting beaten by pace and is hit on the pads. Ishant and the slip cordon start to appeal but then have a look behind. Umpire Dharmasena has his right hand outstretched. Ishant has his hands over his head. Kohli is not amused.

Jasprit Bumrah To Pat Cummins OUT!
OUT! Edged and taken! Cummins departs at last. He has hurt India with bat and ball in this Test. What a fight shown. Short and outside off, Pat arches back slightly and looks to cut but the ball is too close to him and he is undone by the extra bounce as well. Gets a thick outside edge and Virat Kohli at first slip makes no mistake. Patrick walks back disappointed but he needn't be. If the first 6 guys at the top had shown even half of this type of a resistance, Australia might have even won this Test. Well played.

Jasprit Bumrah To Nathan Lyon
EDGED, DROPPED! So near, yet so far from the world record! Would have become the first player to affect 12 dismissals in a Test. Full and outside off, Lyon looks to drive but gets an outside edge as the ball moves away. It goes at a comfortable height but Pant's initial reaction is to move to his left. Then he dives to his right which is a fraction late and that costs him. The catch is put down. A single is taken.

Mohammed Shami To Mitchell Starc OUT!
OUT! Caught behind! This was coming. This was always coming. The ploy of dangling the carrot works. Full and wide outside off, Starc gets tired of leaving balls alone and this time has a massive waft. Does not move his feet at all and gets a thick outside edge. He immediately looks up at the heavens in frustration. Yoga. Yoga might help. In developing patience, you see. 2 wickets away now, are India. Good resistance shown by Starc though. Stayed around for 97 balls with his fellow speedster. Thought we would have been home by now...

Drinks break. The last hour started with a bang for India as Bumrah dismissed Paine early. But since then Starc and Cummins have frustrated the touring team by forming a partnership. The pair is doing a good job as now the target for Australia is under 100. This is getting closer than we thought.
