India needed an amazing performance with the ball to prevent Australia from winning the four-match Test series after another disappointing showing with the bat in the second innings of the third Test. That didn’t work out well for India, though, as the team captained by Steve Smith easily won by nine wickets in Indore.
However, Usman Khawaja, who was outstanding in the first innings of the game, gave the home team the day’s first significant wicket. India experienced some optimism following the dismissal of Ravichandran Ashwin, but all of their hopes were quickly dashed by Travis Head’s counterattacking play. In the morning session proper, Australia pursued the total, and Marnus Labuschangne appeared to be invincible.
Now, with regard to India’sTheir middle order hasn’t done so well at the plate thus far in the series. Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer have struggled to turn his promising early performances into significant totals, but Cheteshwar Pujara finally displayed some signs of his talent. There is still more that India can do to improve before the fourth Test at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad since KS Bharat’s recent batting performance is also cause for concern.
For the third Test, seasoned spinner Nathan Lyon received Player of the Match recognition for his remarkable performance. The 35-year-old completely destroyed India’s batting in the game’s second innings by dismissing eight of their players. In total, Lyon took 11 wickets both during and after the game.During his press conference, he discussed his stock balls and how they had benefited him throughout the series.
This Test series has been quite impressive. But I am extremely pleased of my squad for coming out here and giving a great perform. It was amazing to watch the boys the opposition today. I don’t know all the tricks or trades in the game, but one thing I do is believe in my best ball, and that is the most important thing in international cricket. If you have faith in your best ball, you can compete against the best players in the world for longer stretches of time, Lyon said, as reported by Cricbuzz.
