There is still no sign of rain stops Australians will be happy with this. Because even though India can get two sessions to play, but in these humid conditions it should be enough to dismiss them.
Update: Unfortunately Sydney is still raining, but it is not too heavy at all. But to start playing it will have to go away completely.
It does not look good for the Indians. They will concentrate on eliminating the opposition team in almost 70 overs and winning the series 3-1. But rain and bad light have disrupted their possibilities.
They said, & quot; We looked at all those experiences and said that in order to be successful in Australia, we need to ensure that we cut and pull out Australian batsmen and then concentrate on their strength. That's exactly what we did. The & # 39; India has got a weird year this year, for which they were desperate to win in South Africa and England. But, even those failures have helped the team get important information which will help them seal the deal in Australia.
The fact that India was ready to pursue itself, was asking its bowlers to carry the burden of two more consecutive times, they showed that to finish the series 3-1 instead of 2-1 on the shore How eager they were for After all, the announcement in the first innings was not particularly necessary, given that the Border-Gavaskar Trophy was already in the bag and India had set up a mountain of runs that Australia was not really screaming to win the game. Was there. . The call to implement follow-on was done so early, and that too to miss two of Ishant Sharma and R Ashwin from India's first choice of bowlers. The fact is that Kohli and Ravi Shastri rely on the current choice of bowlers to do that work, in which they showed their self-confidence and confidence. He said, "We have great respect for our fast bowling attack and I think they are probably one of the best players in the world." Arun said that we were focusing more on what we can do, and we have already visited Australia and we knew how wickets in Australia are and things are like – what we got in South Africa Are much more than that
Bharat Arun, bowling coach of India, said, "In fact, when the Australian team was 150-over for five, keeping in view the weather forecast, we said that we will definitely implement follow-on." He said, "This is probably one of the best wickets we have played from the point of view of the batsmen." Therefore, we knew that we needed to throw several overs to win this game. And this is also the fact that the weather was more compassionate than it was in the first three days and also that it is a big opportunity for us to make a 3-1 scoreline, it was a great motivation for us to go and Give it all We have to do it 3-1. "
Despite losing almost 65 overs, India has given Australia enough time to bowl in real life. Kohli became the only other Indian captain – Kapil Dev was the first on the field in 1986, who implemented it. Australia's dominance was such that in 1988, they were asked to follow for the last time and since 172 tests have been done without putting themselves in such a situation. But, India was thinking about follow-on ahead of the fourth day, with four wickets in hand.
For India, their batting line-ups were up, Cheteshwar Pujara made a series of his life, Rishabh Pant made an important score by Kik Marhi and Virat Kohli. But, due to the rains of rain, once again the superiority of Indian bowlers came. Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav all did one thing, as soon as the drizzle ended the game, Australia were dismissed for just 300, and the rest of 322 provided by the break was Kohli. Were enough to follow-but
At the beginning of the India-Australia Test Series, if you wanted to put all the money in every of four games, and on the last day a big decision was made then you would get a great odd. For this, it was already clear that there was international bowling attack in Australia, but their batting was thin on the field. It was then thought that batting mostly made up of two senior players, Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh, were left to go with only one innings, neither did the player give the team what was expected of them.
India would have been hoping to win another victory, if the light would let it happen. Hello and welcome to the fifth and final day of the last Test between India and Australia.
Live Update: Update: It still drops in Sydney. Lunch will be held at 7 a.m. We are expecting to start at 7.40 AM, if rain is in the bay.
Hold the live action here from the 5th day of the fourth Test between India and Australia in Sydney.
Day 4 Report: left-handed wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav (five wickets for 99 runs) got enough time to complete his second Test five wickets but continuous drizzle and poor light ensured that on the fourth and fourth day four Only 25.2 of them could be possible. Last Test between India and Australia was held on Sunday (January 6th) in Sydney.
After the first session ended, Australia scored a score of 300 in 104.5 overs in reply to 7 wickets in 622 of India. Indian captain Virat Kohli did not waste any time in implementing follow-on, and the home side had scored six runs without loss in four overs, when the game was stopped due to bad light, India could not throw a single ball in the last session. Given . Australia still has 316 runs in arrears and if India allows the weather on the last day, then the series will end with a score of 3-1.
Earlier, continuous light rain prevented any game in the morning session. A big storm came on Saturday late evening, which was forced to end by half an hour ago, and skyrocketed on Sunday. Four days of lunch were thrown without ball.
When the match finally started in the second session, Mohammed Shami dismissed batsman Pat Cummins for 25 in the first over. Cummins had batted well till then, but Shami's ball had no answer.
Peter Handscomb made good shots against Kuldeep but could add only nine runs in his over because he was sent back by Jaspreet Bumrah. The fast bowler continued to peg off the Handscomb from the shorts and then brought the one back in as the ball hit the inner edge of the bat, collided with the right handers' pads and ripped off the stump and went back.
At number 10, Nathan Lyon could not offer any resistance, as he did in the series and got trapped in front of the stump, became Kuldeep's fourth victim. Visitors had an opportunity to push the innings, when Kuldeep inspired a top-end from Josh Hazlewood's blade, but Hanuma Vihari gave an easy chance while running on the mid-on. At that time Australia's score was 264 runs at 9 wickets.
Mitchell Starc (29 *) and Hedgewood (21) kept for a while after adding 42 runs for the last wicket to some extent. Both of them played their shots, most of them used to bat directly, and kept India in the bay.
It was Kuldeep who paused Hazlewood in front of the stump and broke the disappointing stand and finished his five-round match. India has enough runs to play and they decided to follow, which means that in 30 years Australia have to follow in the first home test. The last time it happened was in 1988 in the one-place Biennial Test against England at one place.
