It was a riveting Bengaluru Test, where India emerged trumps by 75 runs. This was a Test which was great from the point of view of cricket. The balance of the game kept shifting like a pendulum. It oscillated from session to session. There came a time in the Test, when bowlers of each team had a face-off, not literally. It was a moment that both the bowlers won’t forget soon.

India batted first and they could not manage to take advantage with a decent enough score. In reply, Australia batted well to gain advantage in the Test.

But the incident we are focusing on is when Starc got the better of Mukund in the first innings. It was a pacy delivery which caught Mukund napping. Starc gave him a sent back, pointing fingers towards his head, probably indicating it is a all in the head.

Indian off spinner Ashwin, who bowled fantastically in the second innings to win it for India, gave it back to his Australian counterpart. It is like, the doctor gets a taste of his own medicine.

Ashwin, foxed Mitchell Starc at a very crucial juncture of the Test. Ashwin managed to get Starc bowled in the second innings, when the visiting all rounder left a gap between his bat and pad. Ashwin bowled a ball that did not turn a lot and went straight on to rip the timber.

It was a moment that will be etched in the memory of both the world class cricketers.
