Rohit Sharma had continued the same performance with 127 runs in the second innings. The second test was graced by the century of Mayank Agarwal (108) and the double century of Virat Kohli (254).

The first test was won with a difference of 203 runs whereas the second and third test was won with a difference of an innings and 137 runs and an innings and 202 runs.
