Australia force draw in third test against India

Adjust Comment Print

We took the new ball and got a couple of wickets.

When an Australian scribe asked about the mocking incident involving himself and Glenn Maxwell, an upset Kohli said: "It's amusing all our guys ask about cricket as the first thing and you ask about something controversial".

"It's never easy batting in the fourth [third] innings of a game in India and trying to save the game, and I was exceptionally proud of the way they all went about their business". Not being able to take the field [due to a shoulder injury] and watching the opposition get big runs was hard.

"Always liked playing against spin". Everyone is in good form we have had a good three Test matches, we've played some very good cricket.

"The partnership between Saha and Pujara is the best I have seen".

"Saha did it in West Indies, he did it in Calcutta as well, and here under pressure, he really stood up". You really feel glad for a guy like him. "Always smiling, always happy for whoever achieves anything".

The Ranchi Test between India and Australia has been a memorable one for the Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja. "He knows his limitations and sticks to it". The India medical staff will do everything in their powers to get the captain fit and ready for the final Test match, and India desperately need their skipper to be in the right frame of mind, in all facets, in Dharamsala. Dharamsala (the venue for the final Test), (will be) no different from what I have done here. That's what we want to be.resilient. "Credit to our boys the way they came out today after having such heavy legs to be able hold out for the draw". They didn't look like they were getting out for a while.

The skipper added: "It was important to score big first-innings run, we left ourselves a bit short there".

Marsh, who had made a modest contribution of just 93 runs in his five previous innings in the series, did enough to ensure even the loss of Glenn Maxwell (2) didn't throw the Australians too far off course.

Renshaw and Smith safely navigated their way through the first hour before both were dismissed after the drinks break.

"They [Handscomb and Marsh] backed their defence for long periods of time and to see the game out for as long as they did was an outstanding performance. We will look at our positives and move forward.". "If we can get closer to the target and maybe, if possible, extend the lead from there, I think it's going to be a good game in hand".

During the knock, Pujara consumed the most number of balls by an Indian batsman in an innings, overtaking Rahul Dravid's 495 deliveries during his 270 against Pakistan at Rawalpindi in 2004.

"When Wriddhi (Saha) came in, we had a chat we needed a big partnership".

"This is the best I have watched him bat. That's how I would explain it, no issue with that".
