The third test of Border Gavaskar Trophy between Australia and India ended as Draw on Day 5. Game play between both the teams was superb on all five days with India showing strong determination to fight against all the odds.
Rishabh Pant, Hanuma Vihari and Ravichandran Ashwin battled out through out the day despite being injured. Even Ravindra Jadeja who dislocated his thumb in first innings was padded up to bat if required. Despite of so many injured players, and controversies around Racism, Indian team didn’t give up and showed a character to fight while chasing a mammoth total of 407.
Cricket Fans, and retired cricketers were amazed with Team India’s performance at SCG and they showed their reaction via social media. Indian Players who were part of the heroics today also shared their views on this epic draw. Here are the top tweets.

What a remarkable performance by Team India. Once again great show of resilience under grave provocation, spate of injuries and several key players missing. Bravo! #AUSvsIND

Loved the fight and determination of India all day today. Starting with Pant and Pujara, and then for Vihari and Ashwin to withstand Australia and look largely in control for most of the day was very impressive. Can't wait for Brisbane now. #AUSvIND

I have been hugely impressed by the steel and resolve in this Indian team. Whether it was fighting back after Adelaide or saving a lost game here in Sydney. Outstanding.

Hope all of us realise the importance of pujara,pant and Ashwin in cricket teams..batting at 3 in test cricket against quality bowling is not always hitting through the line ..almost 400 test wickets don't come just like that..well fought india..time to win the series @bcci
