Australia Vs India – 2nd Test: Rahane-inspired India trumps Australia to level series

December 29, 2020

Hungry for redemption, India recorded a win under an inspirational Ajinkya Rahane, beating Australia by eight wickets in the second Test to level the four-match series 1-1 in Melbourne today.

The target of 70 was never a big one but for a team that was bowled out for its all-time lowest score of 36 only 10 days back, one can’t fault them if that played at the back of their minds. Shubman Gill (35 not out) and skipper Rahane (27 not out) knocked off the runs in 15.5 overs to complete the victory.

Earlier the Indian bowlers Jasprit Bumrah (2/54 in 27 overs), debutant Mohammed Siraj (3/37 in 21.3 overs), Ravichandran Ashwin (2/71 in 37.1 overs) and Ravindra Jadeja (2/28 in 14 overs) bowled out Australia for 200 in their second innings, thus leaving India just 70 runs to win which they did in style losing just two wickets.

SCORES: Australia – 195 and 200; India – 326 and 70/2.

The third of the 4-Test series will take place at Sydney from Jan. 7 to 11, 2021.
