Sachin Relives Epic Victory!

In the third match of Titan Cup 2019, Australia kept a target of 215 runs for India while batting first. Skipper Mark Taylor played a 105-run knock and Steve Waugh (41) and Michael Bevan (36) played helping knocks to build team's batting. India's middle-order suffered a severe batting collapse with Rahul Dravid (6), Mohammad Azharuddin (1) and Sourav Ganguly (4) losing their wickets in quick succession. However, Sachin kept his wicket on the tough batting pitch.

At 4-47, Ajay Jadeja managed a rebuilding partnership of 79 runs with Sachin. However, he faced a run-out and got out at 27. The biggest blow occurred after Sachin was dismissed at team score 164/8. With 8 wickets down and 52 more runs needed, it was a tough situation for India. However, Srinath and Kumble did not lose their wickets and hit 30* and 16* runs respectively to clinch victory for India by 2 wickets. It was really an unbelievable achievement for India. India also won the final after defeating South Africa by 35 runs in the final.
