Pat Cummins-led Australia had the advantage at the start of Day 3 on Sunday. The visitors were 61 for 1 in just 12 overs. Besides, Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne were looking set for a big score.
But the game changed completely on the third morning as Australia lost nine wickets for just 48 runs in 19.1 overs. Australia batters were again found wanting against the spin duo of Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin.
Skipper Rohit Sharma was all praise for Jadeja at the post-match ceremony. Rohit lauded the prolific all-rounder for his tremendous mental fortitude.
“Yeah, look, he has been brilliant. Comebacks are not easy, but the confidence that guy has in his ability, that is massive, and you can see it out on the field. There were times when he was put under pressure but there was no sense of panic from him. He just kept relying on what he is best at, and he just kept doing that,” Rohit was quoted as saying after the match.
