IndvAus 4th Test is at the final state. India needs another 87 runs to seal the match and Border-Gavaskar Trophy. On the third day, Indian bowlers took the control of the match as Australia got bundled out for 137 runs. In the process, Indian bowlers did something rare.
This is only the second time in a last 17 years, that three Indian bowlers have taken 3 wickets each, in the same innings. The first such instance was in last year against New Zealand in Eden Gardens. Today, Umesh Yadav, R Ashwin, and R Jadeja took three wickets each. This rare combination has helped India to be on the edge of winning the match.
India resumed the innings today morning with Saha and Jadeja. The fireworks of Jadeja ensured that Indian negate the Australian advantage and India took 32 runs lead. On the other hand, Australia looked confused as they kept on losing wickets.
India now needs 87 runs and they have all the 10 wickets in hand. The pitch is already turning and Indian batsmen need to tackle O’Keefe and Nathan Lyon to win the match.
It is very much possible that the match will be decided in the morning session. However, no one really knows about the Test Cricket and IndvAus match can also turn the other way.
