Nathan Lyon bowled Cheteshwar Pujara and Srikar Bharat during the match, claiming 3 wickets in the opening innings. In order to dismiss India for just 109, his partner Matthew Kuhnemann sought out a five-wicket haul. Rohit Sharma made the decision to bat first after winning the toss in the most recent game between Australia and India.

KL Rahul was replaced by Shubman Gill as India’s opener, and Umesh Yadav took over as their pacer for the contest in lieu of Mohammed Shami.
