Rishab panth gave India a possible shot at an improbable victory with a fast-paced 97.

Team India Showed Real Character
This raw between india and Australia india making a great escape on the back of some exceptional batting performances to the third test.
This is a huge huge moral victory for india. if we look at this batting lineup Rishabh had broken his elbow then hanuma bihari played through pain.
He had hamstring injury. Even he couldn’t even run between the wickets. The number of deliveries that he played was very are so crucial for his entire career.
Ravi Ashwin showed his character as well. He proved again that India can rely on his batting as well when it comes to such situations like this.
Ravindra Jadeja did not give up
Ravindra Jadeja was padded up. I would love to remember you that he had fractured his left thumb.
It is dislocated he may not be seen in action for the next one month.
Despite these problems, it is a great achievement for India.
On the last day, everybody was assuming that Team Australia would win this match.
Rishabh Pant Smashed team Australia
But when Rishabh pants came out to bat and he scored 97 runs on just 118 balls.
Then it seemed as if India were well within a chance to win this test match.
We could see australians the way they were behaving sledging.
In fact, earlier we spoke about what steve smith did on the pitch. He tried to distract the indian players.
Captain Tim payne from behind the stumps exchanged weird to talk with ashwin.
Ashwin played like a senior pro batsman. We should remember he is a bowler who can bat.
In this match, he stood like a rock with hanuma Bihari.
When chateshwar pujara got out, India still had to bat out 43 overs.
That was a huge problem as we know jadeja is injured and he could not bat properly. But he was ready in the dressing room to come out.
Now Jasprit Burma and Mayank agarwal are not fit. They both can miss the next test match.
So if Bumrah miss the next match then Navdeep Saini or Natarajan can play in his place.
We can see Saha keeping the wicket in the last test match and Rishabh Pant can play as a batsman.
