Speaking about the match, Australia lost their final six wickets in the first innings in the third Test against India on Thursday during the second morning for a total of 197 runs.
As skipper Rohit Sharma (5) and Shubman Gill (4) successfully negotiated a difficult 10-minute stretch just before the break, India’s second innings in Indore was 13-0 at the break, behind by 75 runs.
Cameron Green and Peter Handscomb did well to last the opening hour of play on a track that was spinning and had surprising bounce, but after they left, India quickly dismantled the remainder of the order with seamer Umesh Yadav taking three wickets.
With his long stride, the tall Green countered India’s spin attack, keeping Australia busy between the wickets as they looked to build a solid lead and win the four-Test series after dropping the first two games.
Nonetheless, Handscomb upped his overnight total by 12 after the drinks break and left for 19, being caught by Shreyas Iyer off Ravichandran Ashwin at short leg.
