KL Rahul was adjudged the man of the match.
"There's no better place for me to come and perform. The loss really hit us hard. This victory for the young team india will be the best victory."
Whe asked if his local knowledge about the track helped, he didn't hesitate one bit.
"I know what the wicket's going to play like. I told Virat, if we get 150 runs, we'll win by 30 runs and that's what happened."
Virat Kohli was visibly ecstatic.
"We wanted to bounce back hard. Not to show anyone, but ourselves that we can compete. We showed the intent that we can win from any situation. I think that first sesson on day 2 was game changing for us. From the moment they did not score big in the first innings, we knew we were in with a chance. We knew if we get 150, they would be under pressure."
The skpper picked out the Pujara-Rahane partnership as the vital moment.
"Pujara-Rahane partnership was a champion partnership. The way they batted was absolutely pleasing to see. As soon as we got 188, we decided that the game was going to finish today. We can't wait to get to Ranchin now. The team's not going to look back anymore".
Steve Smith, despite the loss, sounded upbeat.
"It was a great Test match. I think we were outplayed in the last day or two. The Pujara-Rahane partnership hurt us. This afternoon didn't go to plan. R Ashwin hit the good areas and challenged our batters."
When quizzed about the pitch, he said the conditions were tough. "It was quite hard to play. It was a bit of up and down with the quicks. It wasn't difficult but Test match cricket isn't supposed to be easy."
He added that the team will have to give the DRS a thought.
"It's a difficult pitch to umpire on and we'll have to think about our referrals going forward. It's been a great two Test matches and certainly everything to play for."
Speaking after the Test, C Pujara said the target was good enough. "Anything above 200 was almost impossible to chase. After getting past 150 runs, we believed in ourselves."
R Ashwin was visibly happy with his rhythm. "When wickets come, things automatically come in place. We tried to bowl short spell and rotating between me and Jaddu to keep attacking. Short spells gave me the window to toss it up."
Umesh Yadav was instrumental today. "We were just trying to hit the deck hard. We were just trying to focus on hitting the wickets," he said.
After conceding a first innings lead of 87, India's comeback in this Test has been remarkable. At the end of Day1, after Nathan Lyon sent India packing with 8/50, fans feared the worst. But India's ability to unite as a team and fight hard was heartening to watch.
On a wicket that did everything, the batsmen had to really put their heads down and apply themselves to the task on hand. Australia did that well in the first innings and India took a leaf out of their book in their second innings.
It's all over.
India win by 75 runs
