India vs Australia: Heroic Ashwin and Vihari ensure a fighting draw in SCG Test

Ravichandran Ashwin and Hanuma Vihari put up a heroic show with the willow to help India pull off a fighting draw in the third Test against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). Chasing 407 to win, Ashwin and Vihari had to face the envious task of batting out time with the former taking plenty of blows on the body and the latter batting through pain of a hamstring injury. Ashwin stayed put for over three hours and Vihari for over three-and-a-half overs to ensure that Ravindra Jadeja didn't have to come out and bat with a fractured thumb. Ashwin remained unbeaten on 39 off 128 balls (7x4) while Vihari, batting on one leg, was not out on 23 off 161 balls (4x4) when stumps were drawn for the final time in game. The sixth wicket pair batted for 42.4 over and put on 62 runs to seal the draw for India with the score at 334/5 in 131 overs.
