Sydney: After Australia stretched their lead to a mammoth 291 to bat India almost out of the game in the second Test on Wednesday, off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin agreed that his side will now have to play a catch-up game.
"It's going to be a catch-up game from now on. We will have to dig deep and bat long. One or two person will have to stand up and try to turn things around from now on," said a visibly frustrated Ashwin.
"But if you need to turn it around, you need players to stand up and make themselves counted. It has to come from within. You can't really sit together. It's all fine when you sit together and give all those speeches. Those speeches are very good to watch on TV. It has to come from within. You have to deliver out there," he added.
