  • India vs Australia Flashback Look At Top Five Test Clashes

Australia will employ one of their least credentialed batting line-ups in almost half a century with the team's aggregate of 9209 Test runs the lowest since the first Test in 1977-78 when Australia employed six debutants to replace the World Series Cricket rebels. They haven't had great success in Australia in the past, as Australia haven't had in India.

The match is still well balanced but Head, unbeaten on 61 in his first home Test, still has a lot of work to do given his team will bat last, while India hold a 59-run lead.

The key for India will again be Kohli, who averages 62 from eight tests in Australia, the best effort by any Indian player to have taken part in more than three tests here.

Bumrah then added to Australia's pain by striking with the new ball late in the day, dismissing Pat Cummins for 10. "But when I batted the first and second session, I felt that it was not easy to bat on". Australia run-rate has been on slower side as they trail by 100 runs now.

Alonso looked tired in Chelsea's 2-1 defeat against Wolves on Wednesday night as both the hosts' goals were initiated from the right wing.

Shaun Marsh and Khawaja made it to the lunch break, but the West Australian provided plenty of fuel for his critics when he was dismissed playing a shocking shot - lashing at a wide ball from Ashwin and chopping on to his stumps.

"Barring the one at Lord's (where India lost by an innings and 159 runs) most of the matches that we have lost they actually have got themselves in a winning position and squandered it". All Australian bowlers apart from Travis Head claimed two wickets.

The duo could add 45 runs for the fifth wicket. With that, also came India's rush towards the second new cherry which yielded immediate dividends.

"So I don't think spin bowling is a big threat, but it seems to me that Australia are anxious about the spinning options of India, deciding to go with Handscomb who's such a good player of spin".

They want more in-game rhythm and flow by limiting game timeouts and TV timeouts. These teams will try to find success where the 2001 XFL failed.

Paine expressed satisfaction at the recalling of Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins after the pair missed the Pakistan series in the UAE. Two came off Cummins; the first a pull shot that sailed for six and the other a proper cover drive that cleared the ropes as well.

Ashwin is perhaps the Indian Premier League's biggest success story, rising through the local competition to become a household name in the Indian team and arguably the best finger-spinner in the world. Harris played on to his pads and was caught at silly point in the 22nd over, as the spinner got dividends for blocking all scoring opportunities. The fast bowler had sent down 19 overs during the day, picking the big wicket of captain Virat Kohli and then ending the solid partnership between Pujara and Ashwin.

KL Rahul edged Josh Hazlewood to Aaron Finch at slip for two as his struggle for runs continued, with fellow opener Murali Vijay (11) following shortly caught by Australia skipper Tim Paine off the bowling of Mitchell Starc to leave the tourists 15-2.
