India collapsed from a seemingly impregnable position... Mohali Test: Dhawan’s spectacular innings made victory possible When India went into bat in their first innings, at the stroke of lunch at day three, a draw seemed the most likely result.

India take 3-0 lead with tremendous win in Mohali Test India pulled off a tremendous victory by 6 wickets in the Mohali Test despite the entire opening day’s play washed out. Needing 133 to win in about 33 overs, India got to the target steadily in the last hour. Shikhar Dhawan’s Innings of a Lifetime It must be that the Indian selectors were holding back Shikhar Dhawan so that they could put him into the mix at the right time -- like an army would withhold a secret weapon so as to unleash it when it is likely to inflict maximum damage. Bhuvneshwar's triple blow leaves Aussies in danger zone Australia are in the danger of losing the Third Test at Mohali after losing three top order wickets in 21 overs before stumps on Day 4. The visitors were jolted by Bhuvneshwar Kumar who used both conventional and reverse swing to take all the three wickets to fall to give India hopes of a victory. Shikhar Dhawan’s nonchalance on debut was unbelievable Those who witnessed Shikhar Dhawan’s debut ton on day three of the Mohali Test at the ground or even on their television sets would have been bamboozled for sure. Most would have asked themselves only one question.. Dhawan's scintillating 185* on debut puts India in charge Shikhar Dhawan scored a scintillating 185* on Test debut as India smashed 283 for no loss in just 58 overs in reply to Australia’s first innings total of 408 on Day 3 of the 3rd Test at Mohali. Australia wobble on a good batting surface at Mohali India bowled out as many as 104 overs in six and a half hours to restrict the Aussies to 273 for 7. This was despite the tourists getting a strong opening stand of 139! It was a dramatic collapse for the Aussies – losing two wickets in two balls on two occasions in the day’s play. The match is now nicely in the favour of an Indian victory although the first day’s play was completely washed out.
