India suffered some anxious moments in the tiny chase, falling to 19-2, but rookie opener Shubman Gill (35 not out) and stand-in skipper Ajinkya Rahane (27 not out) guided them home in the 16th over.

India vs Australia, 2nd Test Day 2 Highlights: Rahane hits hundred, IND  leads by 82 runs - Sportstar

India had taken a first-innings lead of 131, thanks to a century { 112(223) } by skipper Ajinkya Rahane . The Aussies, who resumed on 133 for six, added 67 more runs before getting bowled out at the stroke of lunch in the extended first session.

Ajinkya Rahane is the Man of the Match. “Really proud of all the players, credit to our debutants Gill and Siraj. The way they showed character was amazing, unfortunately we lose Umesh but credit to everyone. The five bowling options worked out really well. We were thinking of one allrounder and Jadeja did really well. Shubman has done well in first-class cricket, showed intent and composure. Siraj bowled with a lot of discipline. Sometimes as debutants, you can get carried away,” Rahane said.
