India needs 87 more runs to wins for Gavaskar Trophy


Australian second innings capitulated dramatically in front of some superb bowling by the Indians. The Aussies managed to set a 106-run target, out of which 19 runs have already been knocked off by the hosts’ openers Lokesh Rahul and Murali Vijay.

Glenn Maxwell was the first Australian wicket to fall in the third session of the day when he offered no shot to an Ashwin delivery that was spinning back from a fullish length. Umpire Marais Erasmus gave it out and Maxwell opted for the review. Maxwell had offered his pad without playing a shot, the impact didn’t matter when a batsman does that and the decision of the on field umpire stayed. Maxwell top scored for Australia in the second innings with a 45-run knock.

Jadeja struck in the next over when he had Shaun Marsh caught by Cheteshwar Pujara at short leg at the stroke of tea.

Earlier, Jadeja scored a fine half-century to help India overhaul Australia’s first innings lead as the hosts were 332 all out at lunch.

Nathan Lyon took 5/92 as India secured a 32-run lead over Australia thanks to Jadeja and Wriddhiman Saha.
