MELBOURNE: India skipper Virat Kohli hailed stand-in captain Ajinkya Rahane after the team scripted a majestic comeback in the Test series against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Tuesday.
India defeated Australia by eight wickets to level the four-match Test series 1-1.
Chasing 70 for a win, it was only poetic justice that Rahane hit the winning run of Nathan Lyon as India made a thrilling comeback in the series. The win also ensures India moves a step closer to the final of the World Test Championship.

Kohli said it was an amazing effort by Team India and hailed Rahane for his captaincy.
“What a win this is, absolutely amazing effort by the whole team. Couldn’t be happier for the boys and specially Jinks who led the team to victory amazingly. Onwards and upwards from here,” Kohli tweeted.

Riding on the back of the confidence from day three, India first dismissed Australia for 200 and then came back to chase the target of 70 in just 15.5 overs.
