After quick fall in the early morning India has dominated Australian Batting line-up throughout the day by taking 6 wickets in just 13 runs. Rahane and bowlers’ plans worked out today that put them in a good position. All the five Indian bowlers took atleast one wicket; Jadeja sweeps two big wickets of Wade and T Paine.
Bumrah and Ashwin bowled outstanding in the middle after Umesh Yadav ruled out from the ground due to injury. While debutant Siraj took the wicket of Travis Head in his first spell. Joe Burns failed to defend earlier when he got catch out by Rishabh Pant in the 4 over of the inning by Umesh Yadav. Matthew Wade and Labuschagne then hold the strings for Australia; tried to build a partnership but mystery spinner Ravi Ashwin departed Labuschagne in the 18th over.
Steven Smith again showed underrated performance got bowled by Bumrah scoring just 8 runs. Travis head, Tim Paine and Wade then couldn’t change the scenario and spare their wickets easily. Paine’s catch by Rishabh Pant in the over of Jadeja becomes discussing stock now as Paine was not satisfied with the decision by third umpire.
