Hip Hip Hurrrraaayyyy!!! What a comeback by our Indian Lions. This test match was in the favor of the Aussies even before the start of the match for the reason that WACA pitch offers terrible pace and bounce and hence indian batsmen cannot face the fierceful aussie attack, but what had happened was different story alltogether. Indian started their first innings with a positive note and went on to pile a good score of 330 runs and to the surprise of any Indian cricket fan, they bundled the aussies for a mediocre 212, but i personally feel that India did not capitalize on their lead and set aussies 413 as their target. Aussies too had a turbulent start at the second innings but they had some good partnerships in the middle which really made the game interesting. Their 10th wicket stand of 72 runs were nightmarish to Indian bowlers and it look a long time for them to break that. Atlast Indians won by a margin of 86 runs.
This victory is one of India's best win overseas and this would have certainly boosted the confidence in the Indian camp just ahead of the final encounter at Adelaid. It would be great to see India levelling the series at Adelaid. Good job you MIB, keep up the momentum and go for the kill in the next match.
