    If we go that way then most of the posters didn't think that India would have won this match itself on last day.
  2. Great Post

    Phase 1:
    Gill-Pujara - Gill playing normally, Pujara in blockathon mode
    Overs 36, Runs 71, RR 1.97
    Gill 57(114), Pujara 8(87)
     
    Phase 2:
    Gill attacking, Pujara still in blockathon mode
    Over 41, Runs 95. RR 2.35
    Gill 72(125), Pujara 11(101)
    First real acceleration. 5 overs 24 runs mainly due to Gill who scored 15 runs in next 11 balls and Pujara scored 3 in 14 balls.
     
    Phase 3:
    Pujara also goes in acceleration mode along with Gill. Highlight - Pujara smashing Starc for boundary on off in 42 over - Chepu's first boundary. Starc 20 runs in 46th over.
    Overs 48, Runs 132 RR 2.75
    Gill 91(146), Pujara 26(123)
    7 overs, 37 runs, Gill scored 19 in 21 balls, Pujara 14 in 22 balls. 
     
    Gill got out here.
     
    Phase 4:
    Rahane comes out with intent and scores 24 off 22. This was the time when it looked like India might be going for draw by not sending Pant in. But Rahane's approach was different.
    Overs 57, Runs 167 RR 2.92
    9 overs, 35 runs, Pujara 37 (154) Pujara scored 11 in 34 balls - took some blows in this phase.
     
    Phase 5
    Pant and Pujara - at this point people probably expected Pant to attack, didn't happen. 
    Overs 80, Runs 228 2.85 (Run rate actually dropped when Pant joined)
    Phase Overs 23. Runs 61, Pujara 19 runs in 55 balls, Pant 34 (84)
     
    Pant batted at SR of 40 and Pujara 35 - who would have thought? They built partnership and new ball was taken. Pant played only 2 attacking shots IIRC. One he missed and keeper also. Second was 4 on mind on.
    2nd session was also over and team was in final session.
    Pujara got out in 81 over, just after new ball. 
     
    Overs left 20, Runs requred 100.
     
    Some are commenting that Pujara got out at right time otherwise it would have not been possible. I disagree. Phase 2, 3 and 4 yielded 96 runs in 21 overs with 2 wickets in which Pujara was also batting. RRR was similar here. 
     
    Phase 6
    Mayank is dismissed scoring 9 off 15, Pant scored 23 runs in 24 balls here.
    Overs 87, Runs 265. RR 3.06
    Phase overs 7, runs 37
     
    Phase 7
    Sundar and Pant partnership. It was going nicely, but RRR was ticking up.
    At point it was 44 balls 49 required. At this point it looked like it might just go out of hand. 
     
    India needed a big over to stay in hunt.
     
    Then Sundar smoked Cummins for six, then slashed over slips for 4. They scored 33 runs in next 12 balls and sealed the game.

    They were going for it till the end. But towards the end, after Mayanks dismissal and with 10 overs left it seemed that even Pant had shut shop. He was content with blocking. 
     
    Then THAT SIX happened. It was like a sucker punch out of nowhere, that to their best bowler. Suddenly woke everyone up. Followed by a four. Pant again got confident, went after Lyon and the rest is history

    After 92 overs, we were to score 50 runs in 8 overs.
    From the over 93 to 97, we scored 51 runs in 5 overs. This started with Sundar's six and four on 92.5 and 92.6.

    Once Pujara got out.
     
    Imo he got out in the right time. Otherwise it was going to be a draw

    Yes, ironically the first time in a long long time the new ball's worked for us away from home!

    This. I wanted a promotion to Pant and was disappointed to see Rahane. Thought they're settling for the draw. But wow he surprised

    It was a cat and mouse game for the most part, till the time Agarwal got out. IMO Australia made a mistake taking the new ball as soon as they became eligible to take it. They could have waited a little bit, giving1-2 overs more to Lyon, hoping that Pant would succumb to his own aggressive instincts. Pant's wicket was key,and the bowler with the best chance to make it happen was Lyon. The second new ball fetched them a wicket, but it also cost quite a few runs and changed a win for India from a theoritical possibility to a realistic one. With the target at about 55-60 runs, Pant and Sundar's IPL experience kicked in and they just went for the jugular. Attack was the best form of defense for them, because dead batting for 10-12 overs is just not their forte. Luck was on their side, and the rest is history.

    It was in phases.. first Gill took on Starc.. we got some 20 runs over.. even went for a upper cut over point on the last over before lunch. After Gill got out, Rahane batted quite positively. Pant took time but we knew that he would always go for it. After agarwal got out, there was some tension but Sundar's hook shot for 6 and a 4 immediately over slips nailed it

    Falling asleep at lunch on the 5th day, 3am UK time will be a life long regret! Very bummed out because I watched most of the series. I've seen the highlights now and listened to 8 hours of recorded radio commentary. It's not immediately obvious to me when they started going for it. Can someone comment? Was there an over, a moment, did they push forward then reverse course? Maybe it was more gradual. When you've seen Tendulkar, Kohli, Dravid bat countless times the signs are easy to read but most of these guys we've never seen before, certainly not in this situation. Looking at the scorecard, the standout is Rahane's 22 ball 24. The only bat with a 100+ strike rate. Maybe his knock was the clearest signal of intent both for the viewer and the team.
