Virat Kohli-led India defeated Australia by 75 runs to level the four-Test series 1-1 in Bengaluru on Tuesday. Defending a modest 187-run total, the hosts bundled out the visitors for just 112 with off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin grabbing the limelight in the final session with his spell of 6/41.

It was a closely fought contest and victory didn’t come easy for India. The pressure was heavy after the shock loss in Pune and Kohli and his men found themselves on a sticky note after getting bowled out for just 189 in the first innings. The hosts bounced back strongly in order to win the match. If we take a close look, the win was a result of a series of events that went in India’s favour. It would be unfair to say that India convincingly took away the game from the visitors.

KL Rahul was the silent hero with fifties in both innings. Umesh Yadav’s spell which accounted for the wicket of Steven Smith and Shaun Marsh and The Pujara – Rahane stand were three such really critical factors that determined the win for India in a real sense. Ashwin’s spell was just the knockout blow, to be honest. If these series of events had not occurred, Smith & Co would certainly have been celebrating instead of standing with dropping shoulders. Let’s take a look at those scenes.
