IND vs AUS, 4th Test Live: Toss Time

wickets. The partnership for the third wicket is currently 77.

Earlier, Travis Head helped Australia start strongly in the fourth Test before the hosts fought back with two wickets. The visitors were 75-2 at lunch on the opening day after Head’s attacking 32 in a 61-run opening stand with Usman Khawaja at the world’s biggest cricket stadium in Ahmedabad. Ravichandran Ashwin found the opening breakthrough as he gets the better of Travis Head. But the first hour of play belonged to the Aussies. Head and Ysman Khawaja stitched a fifty-run stand for the first wicket. KS Bharat dropping head for 7 hurt India a bit. But it was Ashwin who struck after the drinks break and put India back in the game.

Earlier, Australia skipper Steve Smith won the toss and elected to bat on Thursday in the fourth and final Test against India at the world’s biggest cricket stadium in Ahmedabad. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Australian counterpart Anthony Albanese were in attendance at the 132,000-capacity stadium named after the Indian premier.

India may have retained the trophy courtesy their victories in the first two matches but Australia pulling one back in Indore means the hosts will now have to win the fourth Test in Ahmedabad to qualify for the final of the ICC World Test Championship and a failure to do so will leave their chances on the outcome of New Zealand vs Sri Lanka series. Australia will want to finish the series by drawling level and considering how down and out they appeared following the infamous Delhi mayhem, 2-2 result will seem as if they have won the trophy.
