Amazing work of Ravichandran Ashwin and Jadeja
Even before the start of the series, the Australian team and the media were making hue and cry that the pitch here has been made only to help spin. This fear of Australia proved to be correct and India’s best spin pair Ashwin-Jadeja did wonders and troubled the Kangaroos a lot in both the innings.
