04:49(IST)As for India, their batting line-up stood up, Cheteshwar Pujara having the series of his life, Rishabh Pant kicking on and Virat Kohli making vital runs. But, on a rain-hit penultimate day, what came to the fore once more was the superiority of India’s bowlers. Mohammad Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav all did a job, as soon as drizzle allowed play, bowling out Australia for only 300, and the lead of 322 with the rest provided by the breaks was enough for Kohli to enforce the follow-on.
04:45(IST)At the start of the India-Australia Test series, if you wanted to put money on each of the four games going the full distance, and being comprehensively decided on the final day you would have got pretty good odds. For, it was clear from early on that Australia had an international standard bowling attack, but their batting was thin on the ground. It was thought then that the batting was mostly made up of their two senior players, Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh, but, with only one innings left to go, neither player has given the team what was expected of them.
04:35(IST)India would be hoping to squeeze in another win if the light allows that to happen. Hello and welcome to the fifth and final day of the last Test between India and Australia.
