Man of the Match: Cheteshwar Pujara
MS Dhoni says "It was important to get off to a good start". "Bhuvneshwar provided that. You don'tsee fast bowlers getting too many in these conditions. We often talk about long partnerships. If you get 40-50, you have to score big. That's what Pujara and Vijay did. That resulted in a massive partnership, which gave us the freedom to accelerate yesterday. It was very important to not give their seamers wickets, and I think they saw that period off really well. After that they could dictate terms. Very good bowling performance. It was important to start today's play really well, and Ishant gave us the important breakthrough. I think I have got a very good side. Yes we have gone through a period we haven't won many games. Credit goes to the team and the support staff. And winning most matches as captain is a collective effort, and credit goes to each and everyone."
Michael Clarke says "India deserve a lot of credit". "They outplayed us in every facet of the game. There is no doubt we have a lot of work to do. In all facets of the game. There will certainly be no stone left unturned. The batsmen haven't put enough runs on, and there is no excuse for that. There will be no break between the Test matches. There will be a lot of hard work, I can assure you. You don't get better sitting on the couch. We have had guys get in and out without making big scores. That's unacceptable."
R Aswin: 600 runs, 81 wickets, 8 five-wkts, all in just 14 matches.
Pujara and Vijay = 370 runs Australia in both Innings = 368.
Six wickets in India's innings went for under 30 runs, last 7 for Australia went for 23 runs, after day 2 both sides must have given up.
8th time India have won a Test without taking 20 opposition wickets- four such instances have come vs Australia
Congrats to MS Dhoni on becoming the most successful captain in the history of Indian cricket.
