CRICKET: Tendulkar backs India to rebound

CRICKET By AFP | March 3rd 2017

Sachin Tendulkar expects India to hit back hard in the second Test against Australia beginning tomorrow in Bangalore after their shock defeat in the opening encounter.

Australia’s crushing 333-run win in the first Test in Pune last weekend was the tourists’ first victory in India since 2004 and ended a 19-match unbeaten run for Virat Kohli’s world number one team. But while the result silenced predictions of another Indian whitewash against the Australians, batting legend Tendulkar is convinced the hosts will put it behind them by the time the second Test starts.

“It was a tough Test match for us but it is part and parcel of the game,” said Tendulkar.
