India captain Rohit Sharma rarely shows his emotions on the field. However, he showed his emotion after India did well against Australia in the second Test in Delhi. India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja picked up 7 wickets whereas R Ashwin claimed 3 in Australia’s second innings and they bundled the visitors within 113.
Meanwhile, Australian off-spinner Nathan Lyon applauded Axar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin after their crucial partnership on day two of the second Test in Delhi. He also feels they are frontline batters and could easily fit into any of the top six line-ups in world cricket as well.

“They are not lower order – Axar, Ash could easily bat in top-6 anywhere in the world, they are not lower order, India have long top order. Very happy with the five-for, we have got the whole eye in the test match, still a lot more work to do,” he said.

On the other hand, this is Cheteshwar Pujara’s 100th Test match and ahead of the memorable game, he spoke to the media a s well. He said:
“It is an honour to receive this cap from you, legends like you have inspired me (On getting the cap from Sunny G). I wanted to play for India as a youngster but I never thought I’d get to 100 Test matches. Test cricket is the ultimate format for me, it challenges you just like life. To all the youngsters, I’d encourage y’all to work hard to play Test cricket for India. I’d like to thank my wife, my family, everyone in BCCI and all my teammates who’ve supported me throughout this journey,” he said.
“A special cap to honour Pujara’s 100th Test. Sunil Gavaskar doing the honours, prior to giving a very earnest speech on Pujara’s contributions for India. The entire team is standing behind, and he has him family beside him to celebrate this special occasion,” he concluded.
