After losing the first Test at Pune by 333 runs must have been a chest-blow for the Indian, but then they are a champion side and their reputation was at stake. The way they made a comeback, first in the Bengaluru Test and then coming back from behind to inflict a win which did not happen, to finally winning the Dharamsala. The win must have been even more sweeter because they won without Virat Kohli, their ace batsman. The win was hard to come by but it was the bowlers who stood up to the plate, even the pacers led by Umesh Yadav and of course the famous spinning duo of Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin stood up and took responsibility. The batters that really stood up at crucial times were KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, even Wriddhiman Saha stood up and took responsibility when it mattered.
In the video you will see, KL Rahul in the fist-pumping, he is elated and seems like in cloud nine. The joy in his face sums up the intriguing contest we have all witnessed during the last two months. In the meanwhile Ravindra Jadeja has been aptly named the man of the match and the man of the series. What a home series the Indian allrounder has had.
