It was a very sportive pitch rolled out with runs, movement, turn, bounce to keep all facets in the game. Both teams put up some top performances and showed very good mental strength. This only leaves us longing for more long format action in women's cricket. Signing off with the hope that we see a rise in women's Test cricket soon. Goodbye! Meg Lanning | Australia skipper: We would have got a result in four days if we didn't have the weather. I thought India played really well. We had to fight it out which I'm pretty proud of the group for doing. They (debutants) ran in hard and gave it their all. We fielded every day of this Test, so we spent a bit of time out there and that's all we can ask really to give your full effort and that certainly was on. Mithali Raj | India skipper : Had we got four more wickets we would have gone for a few more overs. Rain took a lot of time out of the game. We tried to do whatever we could in the time we got. Jhulan has always been my best bowler for so many years and she shares her experience with the young bowlers. We do have couple of young seamers, Meghna and Pooja, who have done well in the ODIs and they get to a learn a lot. Smriti has been fabulous. I was impressed by Yastika in the series. We do have impressive talent in the squad. I am sure she (Harmanpreet Kaur) will take the field in the T20 format. Smriti Mandhana | Player of the Match : It's definitely in the top three (asked to rate this hundred). First time playing a day-night Test, really happy that I gave good pace (start) to the team. Most nervous night I have ever had - after the first day. Lucky with that no-ball on 80. That sort of cleared my mind after that. To wear whites and go into the field is the top-most thing. Different situation today to bat than the first day and that happens only in Tests. To bat with slips, gully is a different feel. We just have three days before the T20s. Rest for a day and get back to business with the T20s coming up. The game saw fine performances from Smriti Mandhana with bat in the first innings, Shafali in the second, with the ball - Jhulan was outstanding and the others chipped in. For Australia, again it was Ellyse Perry who came to the team's rescue with the bat along with Ash Gardner who made a fifty while Stella Campbell on debut impressed with her attitude to charge in and try at all times. Since the game is a draw - both teams get 2 points each which means in this multi-format series, Australia lead India 6-4 at the moment. India accquited themselves well despite not having any preparation with the pink ball in their debut Test and playing more games will only improve this young side further. Plenty of good things to come out from the game for both sides then. Stay tuned for the post-match formalities... 21:10 Local Time, 11:10 GMT, 16:40 IST: The players are milling around. Lanning looks at Mithali, perhaps asking for it to be called off. The Indian captain has a word with her team and the players shake hands. The pink-ball Test ends in a draw. Handshakes and pleasantries being exchanged while two legends of the women's game - Ellyse Perry and Jhulan Goswami have a long chat. No-one dare get closer to them and they are left all to themselves. Great moment between the two. Fabulous advertisement for the game this match. Both the teams tried their best to eke out a result but the first two days, when rain played a huge role, proved to be decisive. More than a session was lost on each of those days and despite good weather on the last two days, time won over a result.
