He's stopped after that drop . Meanwhile partnership 50 off 247 balls. Hazlewood, Starc spewing venom through their balls.

3 overs left and I am breathing normal now. What a morning this has been. Talk about Grit, determination, strength or whatever adjectives - our folks demonstrated this in full.

Rahane is yet to lose a test match as a captain. The statistics show that the last time India had played 100plus overs in the fourth innings was1980.

Glad we pulled out a draw. (If I can say so, 15 more balls left)

Edit:

Shaking hands. It’s a draw indeed. Well
Done Team India.

So India draw the match. A phenomenal draw. One for the ages. Kudos.

I hope our injured players' list doesn't grow any more.

I've been waiting for such a fighting drawn test by India, can't remember when this happened last. Kudos to the team, I think this is historic and a huge win mentally against the Aussies

Unreal from India. One of those to savour for years to come. What resilience and attitude. Vihari and Aswin, two unexpected saviours, with the bat.

I am pissed. Cos if Jadeja and Vihari were fully fit we would have won this and created history.

I am happy. Cos not even in our wild dreams we would have thought of playing 130+ overs in the 4th innings of a test match in Australia to save a match with series on the line. Absolutely brilliant.

Gill and Rohit gave the platform.
Pant played an amazing innings.
Pujara played a Pujara.
Vihari and Ashwin should take a bow for the outstanding defenseive game.

This has to be our best effort for a draw ever outside Asia.

Disappointed with Smith. For all his remorse at the last cheating scandal and he was at his tricks again today? Removing Pant's batting guard mark!

Really really disappointing. He should be permanently stripped from the lists of all time greats. Honour is non-negotiable.

And bat they did!!! What an amazing performace. Kudos to India. They now have the record for most overs batted out by Asian teams in 4th innings in draws in Australia.
The grit, the resolve, the defiance all packed in the innings and what better day to do it than the Legend Rahul Dravid's Birthday.

Add Tim Paine and Wade to it. Although not even close to the achievements of Smith, their behaviour will harm Australian Cricket more than the game itself. Paine does not deserve a place in the team. Neither he is a good batsman nor a good keeper. His captaincy too will come under scanner after today's result. Josh Hazelwood or Labuschagne makes a good case for captaincy as at least they have their places in the team justified.

Oh wow ! I didn’t know Smith resorted to these tactics. I read your post and then, caught up with that video that I found on Twitter. Such cheap tactics.

This is nothing less than a win. Pant has cemented his place now with that batting performance. Even if he has to sit out for injury, selectors will not consider anyone else to replace Saha. Aswin and Vihari showed what test cricket is all about. It has been a long time since I watched a test with such tension. Had Rohit or Pant stayed on for a few more overs, we would have won this.

And Smith, time and again he will display why life is not only about skills and there is something called class which will always be alien to him.

Shameful of Smith to resorting to cheap tactics again. Hope he is reprimanded. Paine sure learnt his lesson. When India won the series last time, everyone kept saying it was against B-grade Aussie team as Smith and likes were missing. Now its been 2 Tests already with half of Indian squad being injured and Aussies still struggle to defeat them. Take a bow Ashwin & Vihari for the valiant effort of defending 43 overs

P.S: I had a feeling Ashwin would go for a half century in the last over. But Paine denied him that by calling it off.

What was this Smith tampering with Pant’s batting guard stuff about?

I saw Paine chatting stuff at Ashwin. I think a lot of the Aussie players are sore losers with no morals. They expect everything to go their way and if at some point things don’t go their way, they resort to throwing their toys out of the pram and show their true colors.

Usually I’m not a fan of Sanjay Manjrekar’s commentary but I thought he was correct in calling out Tim Paine. Don’t talk unless you walk the talk.

Edit- just saw Smith’s scrapgate. Such a silly thing to do. They didn’t give him sandpaper, so he resorted to using his studs.

Edit 2- I’m genuinely happy for Vihari. I truly wish he gets another crack at the test squad.

For Brisbane almost certain that Natarajan will get a game. Pant if fit will get a game. So it will be between Shaw or Saha or Kuldeep.

For Brisbane, anyone who’s fit will find themselves in the team.
