India beat Bangladesh by 3 wickets.
India named the Test series 2-0.
new Delhi. In the second test between India and Bangladesh, there was a close fight between the two teams. The hero of this match was Team India’s spin master Ashwin (R Ashwin). India won this exciting match by 3 wickets. Even though this match was named after India, but there was a time when the Indian team’s breath was stuck. But Ashwin, who came to bat at number 9 in the field, snatched victory from the mouth of the host team.
In fact, on the fourth day, India had lost 7 of its batsmen within 100 runs. The magic of veteran players like Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant did not work. At the same time, Pujara and Shubman Gill also walked cheaply. But an important partnership was seen between Shreyas Iyer and R Ashwin, who came to bat in the lower order. R Ashwin played an excellent inning of 42 runs while Iyer also scored 29 runs. The spin master of Team India has also been awarded the Player of the Match for his match-winning innings. After licking the dust of the host team, the spin master has given his reaction to the Indian batsmen.
Our batsmen didn’t focus on defence- R Ashwin
Ashwin said after the match, ‘We did not have much batting. This was a match that we let drift. Although we could have finished it earlier. Shreyas Iyer batted well. We need to stay ahead of things sometimes in situations like this. Excellent performance by Bangladesh bowlers. But our players did not focus on defence. The pitches here are very good. I felt that the ball got soft a little early. Credit goes to Bangladesh, they put pressure on us.
Ashwin took revenge of Rishabh Pant
Bangladesh’s brilliant all-rounder Mehdi Hasan bowled brilliantly. He took five wickets in the second innings. Not only this, Mehndi Hasan made Team India’s explosive batsman Rishabh Pant his victim. He dismissed Pant thrice in the entire series. But one of his did not work in front of Ashwin. R Ashwin hit 16 runs in his over and put the victory in India’s bag.
