The rhythm is heavy! Capt. Smith shows Pujara the way to the tent by catching a catch, watch the video
The second day’s play of the ongoing India vs Australia Test match at Indore has come to an end. The Australian team has stopped the Indian team in the second innings and is on its way to victory. Now on the third day, Australia will face a challenge of 76 runs for victory. However, Australia captain Steve Smith took a brilliant catch of Cheteshwar Pujara, who was leading India’s innings, to rein in his innings.
After Australia got a lead of 88 runs in the first innings, the Indian team had to fill this lead and get a big lead. However, along with Australia’s most experienced spinner Nathan Lyon, India’s leading four batsmen were back in the tent on 78 runs. On one side, Cheteshwar Pujara was seen struggling. Pujara faced more than 100 balls while other batsmen struggled on this pitch. He scored 59 runs off 142 balls. However, while dismissing him, Australia’s captain Steve Smith took an unexpected catch.

Pujara batted the ball outside off left wicket as Lion bowled. Then Smith, who was standing in the leg slips, lunged to his right and caught the ball very close to the ground.
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.
