India began with the early dropping first wicket in the second inning of Australia as Ashwin dismissed nightwatchman Matthew Kuhnemann in the morning session. Despite falling the early wicket, the Aussies managed to keep themselves in the game as the duo of Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne are slowly striding Australia’s innings. Travis Head looks to have taken the whole responsibility as he is batting unbeaten on 77 off 141 with the help of nine 4s and two 6s. In contrast, Labuschagne is gradually striding by scoring an unbeaten 37 off 137 with the help of four 4s.
On the stumps day 4, Australia was 3 for no loss. Today in the early session Ashwin got India first wicket in the form of nightwatchman Kuhnemann. Australia now has the lead of 62 runs as the duo continues to lead the team. In the first innings, Usman Khwaja scoring a whooping 180 guided Australia to score a massive 480. In response to this, India with the help of Shubhman Gill 128 and Virat Kohli 186 managed to reach a score of 571, leading Australia to trail by 91 runs.
The first day of the match belonged to Usman Khwaja as he set his feet on the pitch and scored a massive 150, giving Australia a huge run margin. Khwaja’s 180 innings off 422 laced with 22 fours. On behalf of India, ace batter Virat Kohli turned the fourth day of the match to his favour as he missed a double century with minuscule 14 runs. Virat scored 186 off 364 taking the team to a good position. His solid 150 is laced with 15 fours.
Despite having to strive for massive scores, the match seems to go for a draw. On the last day of the match, Australia in its second innings is leading with 62 runs. For any team to win the match, both teams will be required to play on the last day of the game which looks impossible.
