The match between India and Australia has come in good shape. Australia are leading by 173 runs after the first innings in the final match of the World Test Championship. On the third day of the match, the Australian team came back to bat in the second session. This time, Australia took the first wicket in the form of David Warner. After this wicket, a funny scene was seen in the field.
David Warner was dismissed for 43 runs in the first innings in the WTC final. The Australian team came out to bat for the second time on Friday (June 9). Warner lost his wicket in the fourth over of the second innings. He scored just one run in 8 balls in this innings and lost his wicket to Mohammad Siraj. After Warner’s dismissal, Marnus Labuchagne was expected to take the field immediately. However, Labuschagne, who was playing at number three, was sleeping soundly in the dugout at that time. This video of Labuschenne is currently going viral on social media.
Meanwhile, if we consider this match between both teams in terms of numbers, India will have to bowl well in the second innings to win. In the first innings, Australia posted a mountain of 469 runs in 121.3 overs, which the Indian batsmen could not manage. In such a case, if the match is to be won, the Australian batsmen will have to be dismissed quickly in the second innings. With Australia still in the lead, victory seems closer for Australia than for India.
Earlier, Travis Head (163) and Steve Smith (121) could score the highest innings for Australia in the first innings. On the other hand, Ajinkya Rahane (89), Ravindra Jadeja (48) and Shardul Thakur (51) scored important runs for India under pressure.

Rahane became the fourth batsman to score the highest runs in ICC finals, the first three names to lift the Indian pride
