The third day of the fourth test match between India and Australia is expected to be thrilling as both teams are eyeing a win. The live score is currently 75/1 with Australia taking a wicket by dismissing Rohit Sharma.
The Indian team started the day with Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill on the crease. Sharma was in a fantastic form and had scored a brilliant century in the previous match. However, tragedy struck for India as the Australian spinner Mitchell Swepson dismissed Rohit Sharma in the 20th over. Rohit who was playing extremely well scored 14 runs off 38 deliveries.
After Sharma’s dismissal, India sent Cheteshwar Pujara to the crease. Pujara who is known for his defensive strategies played cautiously and managed to score 8 runs off 25 balls. Meanwhile, Shubman Gill played his natural game and scored 36 runs off 104 deliveries, hitting five fours.
The Australian team, on the other hand, displayed their strong bowling performance. The left-arm spinner, Xavier Kuhnemann, who played his second test match, took the wicket of Rohit Sharma, giving his team an early breakthrough. Apart from Kuhnemann, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood, Australia’s pace attack, kept the Indian batsmen at bay.
The Indian team’s batting order has been in the spotlight throughout the series, with criticism coming from various quarters. However, on the third day of the fourth test match, the Indian batsmen put in a decent performance. Plays were stopped due to rain, but it didn’t stop the Indian team from scoring runs. They managed to score 48 runs in the 15.5 overs played on the day.
The Indian skipper, Ajinkya Rahane, will be looking to take the team’s score beyond 300. He has a lot of experience batting in Australian conditions and can guide the young Indian players to success. Rahane’s contribution will be crucial for India’s chances of winning the test match.
The Australian team, on the other hand, will be looking to capitalize on their early success and take more wickets. Their batting performance has been a bit unsteady in the series, and they haven’t been able to score big runs. However, the Australian captain, Tim Paine, will be hoping that his batsmen will step up and deliver a good performance in the fourth test.
The fourth test match is being played at the Gabba, Brisbane, and is the final match of the test series. Australia had won the first test, whereas India made a comeback and won the second test. The third test had ended in a draw, which set up the series nicely for the final test match.
The Gabba pitch has traditionally been known for being a fast bowler’s paradise.
