Twitter Reactions: Pujara, Pant and Jadeja put Australia to the sword in the Sydney Test

Posted On / /

A marathon century by Cheteshwar Pujara and a swashbuckling ton from Rishabh Pant all but ended Australia’s hopes of saving the Test series as India built a massive 622 for seven (declared) in the fourth and final Test match being played in Sydney.

The methodical Pujara made a masterful 193 off 373 balls while Pant scored his highest Test score in an entertaining 159 not-out.

All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja chipped in with a lively 81 in a 204-run stand with Pant – a record seventh-wicket partnership at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).

Indian captain Virat Kohli finally declared when Jadeja got out, with the tireless Nathan Lyon picking up 4-178 off 57.2 gruelling overs.

It left new-look Australian openers Marcus Harris (19) and Usman Khawaja (5) to negotiate 10 tricky overs before stumps after a torturous day in the field. They ended at 24 without loss.

Here’s how Twitter reacted:
