After this match, its captain Virat Kohli returned home for the birth of his first child. But from here again India under the leadership of captain Ajinkya Rahane made a strong comeback in difficult conditions. Many important players got injured and sat on the bench – players like Mohammad Siraj, Shardul Thakur, Washington Sundar, T. Natarajan got a chance and all of them helped India win the series.
