However, in the midst of the contest, during the first over of India’s 2nd innings, the Australian pacer, Mitchell Starc was seen bleeding. Despite the blow to his index finger, the ace fast bowler continued to bowl. Notably, Starc had some discomfort in his finger after snapping a tendon in a fielding mishap in December 2022.

Meanwhile, R Ashwin and Umesh Yadav conjured a stunning turnaround as the duo got three wickets each to warp up Australia’s first innings. The Aussies will be gunning to restrict the rival side to a meager total as India takes the field to set up a target.

After taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in the 4-match series, Rohit Sharma and his men are one win shy of cementing their place in the summit clash of the ICC World Test Championship. Meanwhile, Australia’s fine dominance in Test cricket came to a screeching halt after being handed back-to-back defeats by the Indian side.

With the consecutive losses, Australia’s wait for a place in the finals of the global ICC event continues. However, the Aussies started off well in the ongoing Test but it remains to be seen if they are able to obtain a result in their favor. Furthermore, a win or a draw in either of the last two Tests will see Australia sail through to the summit clash of the WTC.
