I am absolutely over the moon. Due to a busier day at work and some commitments, I managed to only watch the last session bit of Day 5. I started watching from seven wickets down.
Following the commentary at the tea break and watching the whole reverse swinging yorkers from Bumrah breaching furniture evoked goosebumps. Commentators at the end of Day 4 play were questioning what would Thakur offer on a pitch as flat as this. Guess what? That man not only came up trumps in both innings with effervescent half-centuries, but he also went on to take the two big wickets of the fourth innings.
Everybody questioned Kohli for not picking Ashwin for this test, and yet, Kohli has redeemed his wild card Thakur like a million-dollar lottery.
What a handsome position to be in going into the final test. India is going places.
