But thanks for your company. On behalf of the entire ESPNCricinfo team, as well as Sreshth Shah, Himanshu Agrawal and Chandan Duorah it is goodbye from Ahmedabad.
India series winners. The two teams will next meet in a Test in the WTC final in England in June. India captain Rohit Sharma : “It was fantastic. Right from the word go. It was exciting, all the Test matches there was something in it for everyone to watch.
We understand the importance of the series and definitely understand the importance of the opposition. After playing good cricket for 40-odd days we stand here with a result we are quite happy with. There were challenges thrown up but we responded to them. With the result 2-1, the first two Tests, we knew how important it was to start the series.
I think the Delhi Test match was something I’m really proud of because we were very much behind the game and to comeback from the situation that we did shows a lot of character and a lot of fight.” Joint Player of the series to R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja,
- Ashwin: “It’s been a great journey together.
- We wouldn’t be the same without the other.
- He gives me a lot of freedom to be creative on the field with the ball.
- Credit to him.
- I thought he bowled beautifully in the Delhi Test.
- That’s why we’re here.” Jadeja: “We’re always talking about the wicket, what field we should have to particular batters.
We’re always talking and discussing. I’m not happy with my batting in the series. I missed on a few occasions. Especially in this game. Hopefully I’ll work harder and more focussed on my batting for the next series.” Player of the match is Virat Kohli : “The expectations that I have for myself as a player are more important to me.
I think in Test cricket I wasn’t able to play with my tempo and template that I have played with for the last 10 years for awhile now. So that was the one thing I was trying to do. I felt like I was batting really well from the first innings in Nagpur. But we focussed more on batting as long as possible for the team.
I did that for periods but not to the capability that I have done in the past. From that perspective I was disappointed but there was belief there that I was playing well and if I got an opportunity on a decent wicket then I can make a big one.” Australia captain Steve Smith : “It did end slowly.
- That was a pretty flat wicket that one.
- It was a really enjoyable series to be a part of.
- The boys had a great time over here.
- The hospitality has been outstanding and the crowds have been amazing.
- It was a really well fought series.
- I think we started to play a lot better as the series went on.
- That hour of madness I suppose in Delhi really cost us in that game.
But I think coming back from that in Indore we fought back really nicely and this game as well. Unfortunately the wicket was probably a little bit too flat for a result in the end.” India coach Rahul Dravid on Star : “It was a really hard fought series, there were moments where we were put under extreme pressure by a really good cricket team and we responded.
Whenever we needed someone to step up and put in a special performance, we found it. Rohit led the way in the first Test with a brilliant hundred and it was bookended by Virat Kohli’s brilliant 186. In the middle we had performances from Ashwin, Jadeja, Axar, Shubman there. I’ve probably missed out a few.
I think our fight stood out. Whenever we were under pressure with our backs to the wall we had to respond and we always found that. It’s one of the heartening things about coaching this team. People want to stand up and take responsibility. We just qualified at lunchtime today.
- I wasn’t counting my chickens before they hatched.
- We’ll celebrate this for starters.
- It is going to be a challenge.
- There’s going to be a lot of logistics involved given the IPL final is only a week before the WTC final.
- We’ll think about it.” Shubman Gill on Star : ” is always on his mark.
- He tests your patience so much.
Especially when I was batting to him on day three and the first session was quite challenging for me and Rohit. Just the areas that he bowls. He doesn’t give much to the batter for someone who is consistently bowling outside off stump, he doesn’t give half volleys or short balls.
That’s quite amazing. As a batter it’s quite difficult to score runs off him.” Nathan Lyon on Star : “It’s been a tough challenge. We knew it was going to be tough but it’s been rewarding. I think our group can take a lot out of it. There’s areas where we can improve but some proud moments along the way.
was a pretty tough surface. There wasn’t a lot in it. It can be quite challenging but it’s up to us bowlers get the guys caught on the crease and trying to get them to play false shots. A totally different surface to the first three wickets.” 3.21pm No we’re done now.
Australia can technically declare 10 minutes early. The umpires agree to call it off. Handshakes all-round. The 4th Test ends in a draw and India win the series 2-1. India too good. They deserve to retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Australia will kick themselves for their collapse in Delhi that cost them a rare chance at a series win in India.
But India’s spinners were far too good in the first two Test matches. The two teams will meet again in the World Test Championship final at the Oval in England in June. Neil: “India should’ve sneakily gone for the 84 in 16 overs because I assume Australia “declared” to lose 2 overs for change of innings?” Rohit joked that he would call for the light roller but they ended it by mutual agreement.
- Otherwise Australia would have kept batting obviously.
- Vijaykumar: “I can imagine Chris Broad sharpening his knives before writing up the pitch report ” It will be interesting to see how this is rated following Indore.
- Only 20 wickets fell to bowlers in 5 days.

So India qualifies for the World Test Championship final for the second time in a row.12:12 (IST) Mar 13 JUST IN – INDIA QUALIFY FOR WORLD TEST CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL AS NEW ZEALAND BEAT SRI LANKA BY 2 WICKETS IN A LAST-OVER THRILLER.11:50 (IST) Mar 13 Morning session in a nutshell Australian batters adopted a risk-free approach to reach 73 for 1 at lunch on the final day of the fourth Test against India as the match meandered towards a dull draw.
Australia still need 18 runs to erase the first innings deficit of 91 runs after India scored 571 in their first essay. Australia had score 480 in their first effort. With Sri Lanka not likely to win the opening Test against New Zealand in Christchurch, the Indian team will be a happy unit, going into lunch as they are all set to enter the World Test Championship final.
- With the Motera track showing no signs of wear and tear, a result looked improbable even after end of day four but the academic interest was whether India can effect a collapse on day five.
- However there was no such drama during the fifth morning as Travis Head (45 batting, 96 balls) continued his good form while Marnus Labuschagne (22 batting, 85 balls) was happy to play an ultra-defensive game with no result in sight.
Australia had no chance of forcing a win and their batting unit was justified as they played for a draw on a good batting track. There were not many deliveries that turned and despite their best batter Usman Khawaja’s absence due to a leg injury, Australians didn’t break any sweat.
- Matthew Kuhnemann (6) did the job given to him as he played the tricky overs in the fourth evening and would consider himself distinctly unlucky to be adjudged leg-before off Ashwin.
- Head on his part didn’t play too many attacking shots save one lofted six over long off Ashwin’s bowling.
- He also had five fours in his kitty.11:44 (IST) Mar 13 The Head-Labuschagne defiance! 11:33 (IST) Mar 13 Australia 73/1 at Lunch on Day 5 | Trail by 18 That’s Lunch on Day 5 as Travis Head (45*) and Marnus Labuschagne (22*) bat out the session to frustrate India.
India needed wickets to press for victory but both Head and Labuschagne have denied India any success. Umesh Yadav completes the final over before the break. Head and Labuschagne added 59 runs for the second wicket and faced 152 balls in the session. The only wicket that fell was of nightwatchman Matthew Kuhnemann (6) who was trapped in front by Ashwin in the fifth over of the day.11:29 (IST) Mar 13 Unsuccessful review from India! A review out of desperation from Rohit Sharma and co.
Travis Head presses forward to defend the ball and Ashwin hits his front pad. He was a long way forward and umpire Nitin Menon ruled it in favour of the batter. Ball-tracking does confirm that the delivery is just clipping the top of the leg stump. The on-field decision stays as Head survives a review.11:19 (IST) Mar 13 Head and Labuschagne solid A lot of oohs and aahs around the wicket but India still in search of a second breakthrough.
Travis Head (41*) and Marnus Labuschagne (21*) have done really well and have produced a gritty performance in this morning session. Till now, they have faced 134 balls together and looked quite decent. Bowling change for India now as Umesh Yadav comes into the attack for the first time on Day 5.

Australia now trail by 41 runs.10:47 (IST) Mar 13 Pitch now aiding spinners a lot more! A probing over from R Ashwin. The ball has started to do a lot more off the pitch.

This is the second time Labuschagne has come down and gone aerial against Ashwin. Taking on the challenge from the ace India spinner. AUS 37/1, trail by 54 runs 10:34 (IST) Mar 13 First hour of play done on Day 5! Travis Head (18*) and Marnus Labuschagne (9*) steady for Australia as India continue their search for wickets.

Can India qualify for WTC?
India qualify for World Test Championship final India have qualified for the World Test Championship final. They will take on Australia at The Oval for the World Test Championship 2023.
After an exciting last-ball victory for put an end to Sri Lanka’s attempt to finish in the top two, India has locked up a spot in the World Test Championship final, which will take place at The Oval on June 7. India’s Test series against Australia at home did not begin well, meaning their worst possible WTC points percentage is 57%, even if there are no penalty points due to poor over rates. Sri Lanka initially struggled with rain and failed to bowl out New Zealand on day five of the first Test in Christchurch, resulting in a best possible WTC points percentage of 56% if they win the second Test.

Has India ever won a Test match in Australia?
Series summary – Cricketing contests between the two nations have usually been of high intensity. The importance of the series is also fuelled by Australia’s desire to beat India in a Test match series in India, which, until their victory in the 2004–05 series, they had not done so since 1969–70.
- India has developed a reputation of being particularly difficult to beat at home, having lost only two Test series since 1986–87.
- Conversely, India had never managed to win a Test series in Australia until 2018–19 series, after which they continued their winning streak in the 2020-21 series, thereby retaining the trophy for two editions outside home.
The competitiveness of the series played between the two sides is also reflected in the fact that in both 2000–01 and 2007–08, it was India who ended Australia’s runs of 16 consecutive Test wins. Matches in India are commonly described with labels like final frontier or iconic event,
- The Test series held in India in 2000–01 was labelled the final frontier by Steve Waugh and it lived up to its reputation; it had the closest result in decades with India overpowering the mighty Australians in the final session of the final Test at Chennai.
- The series also gave the cricketing world three champion cricketers in Hayden, Harbhajan and Laxman who were relatively unknown or under-performing till then.
They were the cornerstones of the series and the duels between Laxman & Australian bowlers on the one hand; and Harbhajan & Hayden on the other are often termed the most engrossing player rivalries in a Test series of cricket. The series was played in the backdrop of the death of legendary Sir Donald Bradman who was quoted as saying that he was very much looking forward to the series and had high expectations of both the teams.

How to draw Test cricket?
Draw – The result of a match is a “draw” if a match is concluded, as defined in Law 16, without being a win or a tie. A draw therefore occurs when one or both of the teams have not completed their innings by the scheduled end of play. In matches where the number of overs is not limited, therefore, a team unable to win may be able to ‘save the draw’ by either avoiding being all-out if they are batting (i.e.
by having two or more batsmen left at the end of play who are ”), or, if bowling, by slowing down the scoring of the batting team. The match is then drawn regardless of the total of runs accumulated by either side. Some league competitions allow for a “winning draw” (and therefore also a “losing draw”), allocating more points to one of the teams based on factors such as run rates or overall runs scored.
The official result is still a draw.

What happened to IND vs Aus?

Who won the 4th Ashes 2023?
Australia retain Ashes with 4th Test draw after rain plays spoilsport on final day at Manchester : The fourth Test match of the Ashes 2023 series between England and Australia, held at Emirates Old Trafford, ended in a draw due to persistent rain on the final day.
- The result meant that Australia retained the Ashes, having come into this game with a 2-1 lead.
- This is the third straight time that Australia will be retaining the Ashes having never lost a series since 2015.
- Australia have dominated the proceedings since their 2017/18 Ashes victory and only drew the series once in 2019 in England.
England on the other hand would feel hard done by the draw given they only needed 5 wickets in the final day to win the Test match and score whatever runs Australia could possibly have taken the lead of. Australia were on the backfoot and were vocal about hoping for rain given their disadvantageous position ahead of Day 5 of the Test match.
England who have grown into the series as the day’s progressed had started the match on a high note, bowling out Australia for a modest total of 317 runs in just over a day’s play. In response, England put up a mammoth total of 592 runs in their first innings. Zak Crawley was the star of the show, scoring a magnificent 189.
His innings was marked by aggressive stroke play, what has been touted as Bazball since the appointment of Brendon McCullum as the Test head coach in 2022. He was well supported by the rest of the English batting line-up – Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali, and Joe Root who made valuable contributions to help England amass such a huge total.
Jonny Bairstow starred on Day 3 of the Test match, hitting a rapid 99* silencing his critics over his poor form in the series. As England took to the field for their second innings, they were buoyed by their commanding position in the match. The bowlers started off brilliantly, taking four early Australian wickets and putting the visitors on the back foot.
However, Marnus Labuschagne stood tall amidst the ruins, scoring a gritty century to keep Australia in the game. His innings was marked by patience and resilience, as he weathered the English bowling attack and kept the scoreboard ticking. However, the final day of the match was marred by incessant rain, which washed out any chances of a result.
England, needing five wickets to win, were left frustrated as the weather played spoilsport. Despite the draw, there were several positives for England to take from the match, including their dominant batting performance and the effectiveness of their bowlers. Australia, on the other hand, would be relieved to have escaped with a draw, thanks largely to Labuschagne’s century.
They would also be pleased to have retained the Ashes, despite the challenging conditions and a spirited performance from England. Edited By: Kingshuk Kusari Published On: Jul 23, 2023 : Australia retain Ashes with 4th Test draw after rain plays spoilsport on final day at Manchester
