Australia managed to draw the Ranchi Test after a fighting partnership between Peter Handscomb and Shaun Marsh. The visitors lost couple of big wickets in the opening session on a pitch that had something in it for the spinners, but the home team couldn't make another breakthrough till just before play was called off.
The series is still level at 1-1, India will need to win at Dharamsala to regain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
Here are some of the initial reactions after the Test ended in a draw:

Great effort from Australia to save this one. But this will be remembered as the Pujara Test Match.#IndvAus— Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) March 20, 2017
