IND vs AUS 3rd Test Highlights: India made a perfect start to the day when Ravichandran Ashwin struck with the very second delivery to have Australia opener Usman Khawaja caught behind on 0. Then a few nervy overs later, Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne decided to switch gears and unleashed a flurry of boundaries to take control. They eventually chased down the target in style with Head remaining unbeaten on 49 while Labuschagne hitting the winning boundary to make 28 not out.

Australia Seal Dominant Win

The toss didn’t go their way. They were trailing 0-2 in the series. Two of their top players back home due to different reasons. Down and out. Australia were certainly not the favourites in Indore when India captain Rohit Sharma won the coin toss and opted to bat first at the Holkar Stadium a couple of days ago. However, in about six-and-a-half sessions, they engineered a remarkable turnaround, beating India at their own game to seal a memorable nine-wicket win. At the start of Day 3, Australia needed 76 runs to win with all 10 wickets in the bank. Ravichandran Ashwin picked up the wicket of Usman Khawaja with the second delivery of the morning session to raise India’s hopes. A few nervy overs followed. But having settled in, Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne then switched gears and began scoring boundaries nearly every over. Head scored 49 not out while Labuschagne made 28 not out as the target was overhauled in just 18.5 overs. Australia certainly will celebrate this victory which would boost their confidence sky-high going into the fourth and final Test that will be played in Ahmedabad. India still lead the series 2-1.

Last throw of the dice from India. Umesh Yadav introduced into the attack. He was brilliant yesterday but the ball was old then and he generated reverse swing. This one is just 15 overs old. Travis Head threads the gap between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma at covers to score his fifth four of the innings. 5 runs from it. AUS 61/1 in 6 overs, chasing 76.

So Marnus Labuschagne interrupted Ravichandran Ashwin to before taking his guard. Ashwin was preparing for a two-step run-up to deliver. Labuschagne continued to make him wait.

An appeal for a catch by India. Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer convince Rohit Sharma  after taking a diving catch at leg-slip. The ball spun towards the leg-side after pitching. No spike on ultra-edge, no pad involved either. AUS 11/1 in 8 overs, chasing 76.

3rd Test India vs Australia Live: Nervy Phase

Australia are aware how playing out these initial few overs will be the key to how easily they chase down the target. Slowly they will whittle down the requirement. But as of now, it’s not easy. India need wickets and a bunch of them to have any hopes of making a match out of it. Score 10/1 in 6 overs, chasing 76.

Ind vs Aus 2023 Latest Score: Turn And Bounce

The pitch is behaving how it was expected to. Unfortunately, India don’t have enough runs to defend. They have started well by picking up a wicket with the very first delivery but can they sustain it? Every single run scored will put India under more and more pressure. AUS 7/1 in 4 overs, chasing 76.

3rd Test Live: Is There Another Twist?

Cheteshwar Pujara And The Art of Playing Spin

When he walked out to bat at 15/1 in the fifth over, India were left with a mountain to climb. They first had to wipe off the deficit and then put on enough runs on the board to challenge Australia on a wearing fourth-inning track. None happened as the hosts’ batters fell one after the another and none applied themselves like Pujara did. Read More Here.

final Test in Ahmedanad.

India are staring at a defeat as the visitors need 76 runs to win their first match on the tour. Apart from Cheteshwar Pujara, other Indian batters failed to show any resilience on the tricky batting surface as the hosts were bundled out for 163 on Day 3. Nathan Lyon was the standout performer with the ball as he claimed an eight-wicket haul to put Australia in the driver’s seat. The Australian team dominated the first two days of the Test and now they have a golden opportunity to make it 1-2.

Meanwhile, it’s not going to be an easy task for the Aussie batters as Indian spin troika Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel can put up a tough task ahead of them.

India pacer Umesh Yadav said afterwards that India would try to be “positive” and secure what would be a stunning victory to take a 3-0 lead in the four-Test series.

“It’s cricket and anything could happen,” Umesh told reporters.

“We will try to bowl tight and bowl them out soon. The wicket is not easy and scoring runs is difficult. It’s not easy to step out and hit as the bounce is low.”

On a dramatic day two in Indore, Australia’s batting imploded in their first innings only for them to fight back and restrict India in their second to 163, giving them a victory target of 76.

Lyon said his performance was “up there as one of my career highlights” but that he was “more proud about our group”.

“Personal success is great to have but after (the second Test defeat in) Delhi we had a couple of really good days off as a team, and really good conversations at training,” Lyon said.

He also paid tribute to his “very good mate” Smith, who was captaining the side in place of Pat Cummins who went back to Australia to be with his ill mother.

“(Smith) is one of the best batters in the world, especially over the last decade. The way his brain works with cricket tactics provides me with good conversations,” Lyon said.
