Thunder Downunder 4th Test Day 3| India vs Australia

India is having a dream series in Australia and they have managed to keep the home team at bay even after losing half their actual side due to injuries. The team India is playing with could be considered a 3rd xi for all practical purposes but the men in blue seem to be upto the challenge.

Australians look frustrated and their behavior of late on the field could be described as childish at the least. India on their hand have given their players a license to go out and have fun in the middle. The Indian teams main test squad is missing quite a bit of big names such as Virat Kohli, R.Ashwin, Mohammed Shammi, Ishant Sharma, K.L.Rahul and Hanuma Vihari ,Ravindra Jadeja and Jasprit Bumrah. Though the Indian team have been affected badly their performance on the field have been another story altogether.

Natarajan who came in place of Bumrah has stepped up to the plate in the bowling department with by picking 3 wickets in the 1st innings. He was supported well by both fellow debutants Washington Sundar and Shardul Thakur who picked up 3 wickets each.
India’s batting seemed to have started quite well with Rohit Sharma looking really good in the middle but threw away his wicket once again at 44. The star of the batting though was Washington Sundar and Shardul Thakur who added 125 runs to their 7th wicket partnership. Overall Asutralia was left with a lead of 50 odd runs at the close of the 3rd days play.

Will India outperform the aussies in the last 2 days to hold onto the border-Gavaskar series or will they crumble? What will be India’s plan for tomorrow? All these and more tonight at 7.30 PM live only at Cheeky Cheeka.
