As Day 1 of the ongoing third Test between India and Australia came to a close, there were a lot of highlights from the day. From India getting bundled out for a mere 109 runs to Usman Khawaja’s sensational knock to further mount the pressure on the hosts, one highlight that caught attention was Dinesh Karthik’s spot-on prediction during the latter stages of India’s first innings.
After the top order of India’s batting line-up collapsed under the constant attack of the Australian bowling lineup, it once again depended on the lower order to score the runs for India, but they were unable to do so as well. However, an interesting moment happened when Umesh Yadav came out to bat.

Dinesh Karthik, who was commentating during the match between India and Australia, predicted about the outcome of the ball before Umesh Yadav actually faced it.
“I think he’s going for a six,” Dinesh Karthik said as Nathan Lyon bowled the second ball of the 32nd over to Yadav, and rightly so, the ball sailed over the deep-backward square leg fielder for a 74-meter six. Karthik shared a video of the moment saying “I loved this moment…. Hahah.”

It was quite an eventful day for the hosts, as the rank turner pitch in Indore proved to be a lot to handle for them. Matthew Kunhemann and Nathan Lyon were influential for the visitors as India was bundled out after scoring mere 109 runs.
