Day 3: Stumps – Australia 236/6 (83.3 Ovs)
Australia trail by 386 runs
Pat Cummins was again at his batting best. He proved to be too tough a nut to crack for the Indians as along with Peter Handscomb he saw the session through in which they lost only 1 wicket!
Day 3: At Tea – Australia trail by 424 runs
Australia 198/5 in 68 overs Paine 5(8) Handscomb 21(45)
After a fighting first wicket partnership, Jadeja and Kuldeep made merry and jolted Australia down to 198/5.
Could India win a series down under this time? Kohli boys are leading the Australian side by 2-1. A little more chopping and changing at the top order meant that Lokesh Rahul would share the crease with Mayank Agarwal when India go batting at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
India: Lokesh Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah
