A historic victory

Cricket is a funny game and the team letting the opportunities will have to face defeat in the end. Australian Team played into the hands of Indian Team despite having two star spinners and having two tearaway fast bowlers in the side. If the Pune match was a disaster for Team India, Bengaluru test saw Team Australia in poor light and losing the royal battle after achieving a handy first innings lead. If Ravindra Jadeja pinned Australian batsmen to the crease with a six wicket haul it was R. Ashwin, who had his share of six scalps when victory was smelt. Despite Virat Kohli’s double failure, K. L. Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane shouldered the responsibility very well to make a match of it in the end. No match is lost or won till the last ball is bowled and Team India did the trick with precision to erase Pune defeat. Even though, the winning streak was broken by the Kangaroos, we are back in the winning ways. History was created at the Chinnaswamy Stadium as wickets tumbled on the last day and Team India came back strongly. Kudos to Kohli’s side for this incredible victory.
