Cameron Green and Pat Cummins (22) walked out to bat on day 4 with a lead of 2 runs. After surviving for the first 16 overs of the morning, the partnership was finally broken when Cummins fell prey to Bumrah’s quick bouncer and was caught by Mayank Agarwal in the slips. Green departed in the 91st over after playing a patient knock, the all-rounder intended to pull the short ball by Mohammed Siraj but found the fielder. Without adding much to the total Nathan Lyon (3) was sent to the pavilion before he was caught by Rishabh Pant behind the stumps. The Indian team finally got their much needed Aussie wicket of Josh Hazlewood, who just left the delivery which knocked the off-stump of the tailender.
