Follow-on is scowling Australia. Australia lost 6 wickets to score 236 runs before abounded day three to weather. Now, Australia has to pick 187 runs to escape from follow-on.
Two Aussie openers started from 24 runs on day three in Sydney. They started cooperatively well. The first session costs only Usman Khawaja (27) to Kuldeep Yadav. The opening partnership brought 72 runs. But Marcus Harris picked 79 runs before got bold to Jadeja. Two openers backed to the pavilion at 128 runs. Then they lost another 3 wickets in adding next 64 runs. Two Indian bowlers Jadeja and Yadav forbade the Aussie Middle order to set on the wicket.
Kuldeep Yadav picked 3 wickets and Ravindra Jadeja got 2 wickets. Which brought Australia close to another batting disaster.
Marnus Labuschagne, Shaun Marsh and Travis Head couldn’t steer the team. Peter Handscomb and Pat Cummins will face the Indian bowling on the fourth day of Sydney. Which is the last hope of Australia?
Another interesting thing, a team never lost a test scoring more than 600. So, India is on a safe zone accept the fourth day happened a miracle. Because Bangladesh lost test scoring 595 last year in Wellington.
Finally, Virat Kohli leads his team to a comfort zone. That brought him to win test series in Australia. On the other, another Follow-on is scowling Australia. But weather can be their last hope to save the test.
