Marsh, Handscomb defy India

21 March, 2017, 19:10 | Author: Alberta Rodriguez

Allegations and denials flew thick and fast between rival captains with the India skipper alleging that his team's physio Patrick Farhart was "disrespected" by Australians during the 3rd Test in Ranchi.

"India skipper Virat Kohli on Monday credited Shaun Marsh and Peter Handscomb with preventing an Australian defeat in the third Test, adding that although the hosts got into a winning position it was their excellent batting that forced the draw". Both Renshaw and the Aussie captain Smith, who had just come in to bat at the beginning of the final day's play, would have been fairly nervous to face a combination of Jadeja and Ashwin bowling together to a close-in field.

"Losing the toss here was never easy". Meanwhile, Pujara led India's onslaught of the visitors' bowlers and went on to score 202 off 525 balls. "We have given our best here, and as long as we keep doing that, I am sure we will get ourselves into winning positions", Kohli said.

But the fifth-wicket pair took the innings deep into the last session before Marsh was out to Ravindra Jadeja (4-54), caught by a close fielder, and setting up a suspenseful last half hour.

The Saurashtra Cricket Association (SCA) applauded the performances of two of their local players - Ravindra Jadeja and Cheteshwar Pujara - for their performances in the third Test of the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia. He's a quality bowler and I thought he bowled fantastically well and it was a great challenge out there against him. "All our guys ask about cricket and the first thing you ask is controversial".

Later, it was Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell, who started mocking the India captain, when he dived to save a boundary. I'm really proud of the way they did that. That's what we want to be...resilient. "They're in good form, and we've had a good three Tests, played some good cricket", Smith concluded. "They played beautifully today". They didn't look like they were getting out for a while. "The group's looking forward to it".

Handscomb and Marsh (53) started their partnership before lunch when Australia, having resumed at 23-2, lost the vital wickets of opener Matt Renshaw (15) and Smith (21) in successive overs. "That's how I'd explain it, no issue with that". Pujara also said that his and Saha's partnership was "much-needed for the team".

"You get tired, but I have been working hard on my fitness, careful with my diet, and hoping to recover soon for the big Test coming up", concluded Pujara.
