The Indian team won the second Test match against Australia by 6 wickets on Sunday (February 19). With this victory, the Indian team took a 2-0 lead in the four-match Test series. Also, India retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. It was a memorable match for India’s veteran batsman Cheteshwar Pujara, who was playing his 100th match. Then the Australian team also gave him due respect.
Pujara became the thirteenth player to play 100 Test matches for India. Pujara failed in the first innings of this match. He was grounded on the second ball. However, he made up for this failure in the second innings. In the second innings, he also managed India’s innings with an unbeaten 31 runs. He also had the honor of hitting the winning four for the Indian team.
