Cheteshwar Pujara is the Man of the Match for his 204. Says that there was pressure on him as he had just got married and his wife was worried whether he would perform. Pujara says having scored a big hundred against the Kiwis here, the pitch is very familiar to him and that it was important to see off the new ball and take it from there. Says that he had good communication going with Vijay in that massive partnership which took the match away from the Aussies.
MS Dhoni who has become the most successful Indian Captain with 22 Tests wins looks satisfied. He says that Bhuvneshwar gave his team a superb start to the Test match. Says that the pacers aren't expected to take many wickets but Bhuvneshwar did so by bowling good lines and then the spinners took over. Vijay and Pujara according to him tired the Australian bowlers with their massive partnership. Dhoni reveals that the plan was to bat for 30 more mins yesterday and declare but India lost wickets in a hurry to get bowled. Dhoni gives full credit to all his team members and mentions that Harbhajan had to wait long before he could get the ball as Jadeja and Ashwin were doing all the damage themselves.
A tremendous victory from India in this morning session! And here is Michael Clarke talking about the match to Ravi Shastri. Says that his team has been outplayed completely and their batting faltered in the best of conditions. Clarke is certainly not happy with his batsmen and says that there is plenty of hard work to be done to come up with a stronger performance in the third Test.

Over 66.6 R Ashwin to JL Pattinson, OUT LBW! Persistent lbw appeal from Ashwin and Dharmasena lifts his finger up to end the Test match! Did not look convincing though, a flatter delivery drifting in towards leg to strike the pad in a forward defence, and the ball seems to have straightened and kept low to get the lbw for Aswhin. So India win by an innings and 135 runs to take a 2-0 lead in the 4-match series.
