Lokesh Rahul is the Man of the Match
Virat Kohli: Specially after the way we lost the first Test. We wanted to prove ourselves. Today the boys showed their heart and character along with the crowd. A couple of the sessions were game changing. The moment they did not get big runs in the first innings. We knew we had a chance. The wicket has been relaid. It exactly panned out the way we wanted. After conceding the lead, it was a champion partenrship. The two of our best Test batsmen applied themsleves. The knock from Wriddhi and the way Ishant batted was a bonus as well. Ranchi is going to be very competitive. We can't wait to get there. Hopefully, we can take the momentum forward and never look back.

Steven Smith: Yeah, it was a great Test match. It was a good one. I am proud of the boys. The partnership between Rahane and Pujara hurt us. Ashwin challenged our boys and we were not up for it. Everyone makes mistakes. It is a difficult pitch to umpire on. You have to be smart to take your referrals as well. Certainly a lot to play for as we go to Ranchi. Hopefully some good times ahead.

Over 34.2 Ravindra Jadeja bowls a quicker arm ball to SJN O'Keefe, out Bowled!! . The arm ball. Keeps sliding in straight, scoots low as well in amplifying the misery. O'Keefe wants to feel the turn with his defence and the gap, the one that should never be open.
