Third Test, Day 5: India Draw Against Australia, Series Still Level At 1-1

Sydney: A resolute Ravichandran Ashwin and a hamstrung Hanuma Vihari battled pain and a hostile Australian bowling attack while displaying the largely extinct art of Test-saving batsmanship to snatch a remarkable draw for India after Rishabh Pant raised visions of an improbable win at Sydney Cricket Ground on Monday.
Earlier, Australia was firmly on course for a victory in the third Test after getting rid of a dangerous Rishabh Pant and the rock-steady Cheteshwar Pujara, reducing India to 280 for 5 at Tea in pursuit of 407.
India now needs 107 runs to win but, in all probability, will be looking to survive in the final session of the match to salvage a draw.
Pant (97) and Pujara (77) added 148 runs for the fourth wicket in an amazing counter-attacking partnership before their dismissals put India in a spot with an injured Hanuma Vihari (4 batting) in the company of Ravichandran Ashwin (7 batting) engaged in an arduous battle.
Earlier on Day 4, openers Shubman Gill (31) and Rohit Sharma (52) were winkled out by the Australian pace attack in the final session, leaving Cheteshwar Pujara, who had scored nine not out, and skipper Ajinkya Rahane, who was unbeaten on four, to continue the fight.
Scoreboard: Australia 338 and 312 for 6 dec drew with India 244 and 334 for 5 (Pant 97, Pujara 77, Sharma 52, Ashwin 39*, Vihari 23*, Hazlewood 2-39).
