In the first innings of the third Test in Indore, Umesh Yadav exhaled fire as he took three wickets in the same amount of overs to help India knock Australia for 197. Nonetheless, the Australians have a comfortable lead of 88 runs, so as lunch approaches, attention will turn to the Indian hitters. Peter Handscomb and Cameron Green gave Australia the perfect start to the day. Prior to Ashwin’s decision to remove Handscomb for 19, the combination contributed 30 runs to the overnight total of 156/4. Umesh was subsequently introduced into the attack by Rohit Sharma, and he took two wickets in the following over, including Green.
Australia, meanwhile, was able to go out to an early lead with Matthew Kuhnemann’s first five-wicket haul, giving the visitors a 47-run edge on Day 1. Rohit Sharma and company could only produce 109 runs in the first innings as a result of Kuhnemann’s dramatic batting collapse brought on by his clinical performance. Usman Khawaja, the opener for Australia, played a tough knock of 60 on a twisting surface to put the hosts under pressure while Kuhnemann garnered attention with his remarkable five-wicket haul.
