India Won the 2nd Test against Australia Match by 6 Wickets on Day 3.

That was a swift end, wasn’t it? On the second day, Australian players were beaming with happiness after reaching 61/1 in their second innings. The Test match was evenly poised, with a potential for a thrilling finish. India was getting ready for a chase of over 200 runs. However, the situation changed drastically. Ravindra Jadeja started the destruction on the second day itself by dismissing Usman Khawaja, but most of the damage was done in the morning session when he swept through the Australian batting order like a hot knife through butter. He ended with impressive figures of 7/42 as the tourists crumbled against spin to be all out for 113 before the session ended. Notably, Ravichandran Ashwin was the bowler who sparked the collapse by removing overnight batter Travis Head on 43, finishing with three wickets.

India’s chase began with the early dismissal of KL Rahul by Nathan Lyon in the second over. However, Rohit Sharma batted positively, hitting boundaries, and his entertaining innings of 31 was cut short due to a mix-up with Cheteshwar Pujara, resulting in his run-out. Virat Kohli was in good form, but he was stumped for the first time in his Test career, and Shreyas Iyer played a couple of decent shots before getting out.

However, Pujara continued to bat in his usual style and led a successful chase, hitting the winning boundary as India achieved the target in 26.4 overs to finish with 118/4, winning by six wickets. They now lead the four-match series 2-0 and have retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
