In this article, you will get all information regarding “Idli and Sambhar is always a good combo” – United States KNews.MEDIA

An incredible partnership between Ravichandran Ashwin and Shreyas Iyer helped India avoid a major scare and complete a 2-0 whitewash over Bangladesh on Sunday, December 25. The visitors won a nail-biting encounter by three wickets in Mirpur.

Chasing 145 to win, the match seemed to have escaped the visitors’ grasp after they were in a precarious situation at 74/7. However, Ashwin and Iyer added 71 crucial runs for the eighth wicket and ensured that India ended the year 2022 on a high.

Fans on Twitter hailed Ravichandran Ashwin and Shreyas Iyer for their Houdini act as their miraculous unbeaten partnership got India over the line. However, some fans also hoped the win shouldn’t overshadow the management’s poor decision-making and some of their batters being exposed by spin.

One of them wrote in reference to the states that Ashwin (Tamil Nadu) and Iyer (Karnataka) hail from:

“Idli and Sambhar is always a good combo”

Here are some of the reactions:

Idli and Sambhar is always a good combo

More than celebrating this test win the men who call the shots need to scrutinise how and why India got into the hole, chasing a modest total. This win shouldn’t vindicate the men who’re at the helm of the team affairs #DoddaMathu #CricketTwitter

Ashwin as a test all rounder is like Gold 👏

Shreyas Iyer in Test cricket:- 105 (171).- 65 (125).- 18 (41).- 14 (8).- 27 (48).- 92 (98).- 67 (87).- 15 (11).- 19 (26).- 86 (192).- 87 (105).- 29* (46).- 624 runs at an average of 56.72, a dream start by Iyer in Test cricket!

KL and Rahul Dravid should thank all their lives to Ashwin and Shreyas for saving their respective jobs.

The scientist did it. Somehow got this one. Brilliant innings from Ashwin and wonderful partnership with Shreyas Iyer.

These knocks of 42*, 29*, and 34 by @ashwinravi99, @ShreyasIyer15, and @akshar2026 might be small in number, but they’re huge in stature! Congratulations India on winning the series 👏🏽 Well played to Bangladesh too, gave India proper scare! #BANvIND

ASHWIN YOU FREAKING CHAMPION!What level of mental strength this guy possess.Too good!💪🔥

Ashwin ❤️🔥 legend easily comes in Top 5 greatest indian test players

Mr. Consistent Shreyas Iyer 🫡🫡🫡What a Player he is and Now its time to even stop doubting his capabilities He is soon gonna become India’s Favourite Player 🤞🤞

This is India’s 5th successful 4th innings chase in Asia since 2015, has to be the trickiest one pulled off. First one under Dravid.

Mominul Haque dropping Ravichandran Ashwin proved to be the turning point

India seemed to have learned from their mistakes from Day 3 as they showed positive intent and tried to score quick runs. Jaydev Unadkat smashed a delivery from Mehidy Hasan into the stands in the very first over on Day 4.

However, Bangladesh picked up three quick wickets, with Mehidy dismissing Rishabh Pant and Axar Patel to complete an incredible five-wicket haul. Only one result seemed to be on the cards at that point and that was a win for the hosts.

Mehidy could have easily got more wickets, but luck favored Ravichandran Ashwin as Mominul Haq dropped a regulation chance at short leg. Ashwin had scored just one run at that point and India could have been 80/8.

The Tamil Nadu batter capitalized on the reprive as he and Iyer showed the other batters how to apply themselves on such a pitch. The duo also took some calculated risks and got India over the line. Iyer remained unbeaten on 29 while Ashwin, who took more initiative towards the end, was not out on 42.

This win has boosted India’s chances of making it into the World Test Championship final.
