A historical fightback was scripted by Hanuma Vihari (23 off 161 balls) and Ravichandran Ashwin (39 off 128 balls) when they batted for over three hours valiantly to take India to safety as the Sydney Pink Test concluded in a draw. India scored 312-6 on the final day during their chase of 407.

Starting on an overnight total of 98-2, India lost Ajinkya Rahane (4) early but Rishabh Pant (97 off 118 balls) and Cheteshwar Pujara (77 off 225 balls) showed some real resilience putting up a 148-run stand. But once they got out, an injury-hit India had to slow down and target a draw.
