With India leading by 25 runs, Australian captain Steve Smith called on leading paceman Mitchell Starc to bowl. Shreyas tries to hit his bowling big and is caught by Usman Khawaja. He completed a brilliant catch by leaping to his left hand. The video of that catch is going viral on social media.
After Australia’s first innings lead of 88 runs, India’s second innings ended on just 163 runs. Nathan Lyon was the top wicket taker for Australia with 8 wickets. So, Cheteshwar Pujara scored 59 runs for India. On this pitch, which is becoming very difficult to bat on, Australia will have to pass the target of 76 runs.
