India has made their call of Victory after 71 years of battle in a field with Australia however succeeded with a happy scoreline of 2-1 after the fifth day of the fourth and final test held in Sydney on Monday (January 7, 2019).
The match was held in Sydney cricket ground continuing the recent day of action in whites between these opposite sides in India’s visit Down Under 2-1 and that could be the last scoreline as there is no time left for the Aussies to take care of this diversion. The main variable would be 3-1 if India does figure out how to bowl out the hosts today. That appears to be implausible thinking about what we experienced yesterday and the gauge of cricket we got the chance to see. But one thing is without a doubt, Kohli’s young men will make history by winning their first historically speaking Test series in Australia since their stays began 71 years back.
Coming to the cricket in hand, Australia trails India by 316 runs in the second day. Switching back to the India tour in Australia, the epic play of Pujara and pant was mind-blowing in the fourth test of day 2 made the Aussies struggle with the scoreline. The previous day was lined up with only 25.2 overs by Australians that didn’t make time for India to wrap them.
For the Indians, today is not about winning or losing anymore, the history is going to be written. The match was so thrilling that the Indian covered all the bowls batted by Aussies. The rain only stayed away for a while promising the light to shine. But feeling the defeat of the host, rain flushed the ground making the match 4 hours late. The home team crumbled at 300 runs all out. Even after the lunch break, the rain drizzle continues that made the captains and the officials consult the groundstaff. The match is being officially CALLED OFF!
Though the Sydney match ends up in a draw, India wins THE BORDER-GAVASKAR TROPHY 2-1. Such a proud moment for the Indian Cricketers to rewrite the history after a gap of 71 years. An incredible achievement for the Indian cricket team, Allan Border handed over the Border-Gavaskar Trophy to the captain Virat Kohli and with him, the whole team joins making the stadium gracious.
The man of the match and man of the series goes to the man who well deserved it – Chetheswar Pujara (521 runs from 1258 balls).
