Mishra, Ojha return with rich hauls as match ends in draw
Left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha turned out to be the biggest gainer while comeback man Amit Mishra got five wickets and more importantly vital overs under his belt as the first unofficial ‘Test’ match between India A and Australia A ended in a tame draw.
Chasing a target of 240, Australia A reached 161 for four in 46 overs when the umpires decided to call off the match after the two captains shook hands.
For Ojha, a match haul of 6/132 (5/87 & 1/45) will do his confidence <g data-gr-id="13">a world</g> of good. Mishra bowled close to 40 overs across both innings and a return of five wickets could be considered a decent performance. Earlier, India A declared their first innings at 206 for 8, starting from their score of 121 for three.
