Aus vs Ind – 3rd Test – R Ashwin


Despite four Test centuries to his name, R Ashwin, who returned battered and bruised from the barrage of short-pitched bowling at the SCG on Monday to help India draw the third Test, said his undefeated 128-ball 39 was one of his best batting efforts in what was a “fantastic” result for India, even if his desire was to hit the winning runs.

Ashwin said India were “relieved” after the great escape – earned with a lot of grit an determination – and talked up the mood in the dressing room. “The atmosphere in the dressing room is absolutely electric, everyone is relieved to a certain extent,” Ashwin told Fox Sports after the match. “At the same time, we are so very happy, I haven’t seen such smiles in a long time. Yes, the last game [Melbourne] was a lovely win, but I think this draw… in Test cricket you don’t get a lot of lovely draws and this was one of those fantastic draws.”
