Openers aim to swell India's lead; Bumrah scalps six wickets

India 57-1 at lunch as MCG pitch under scrutiny

Being dismissed for 151 in reply to India's mammoth first innings total of 443-7, Australia needed an inspired bowling performance to breathe life back into the Test match and Cummins obliged the Aussie wishes. And that's Stumps as India lead by 346 at the end of Day 3. People have only seen me in white ball cricket.

The very next ball saw another missed chance spurned as Rahane edged the ball inches wide of a wrong-footed Travis Head at short leg, in an agonising over for Lyon. The batsman tried an exaggerated onside flick, but ended up edging to slip as the ball exploded off the pitch.

There was a lengthy hold-up after Harris - who has copped a bit of punishment in the grill this series - was hit in the helmet by Jasprit Bumrah, while there were some nervy moments early on for fellow opener Finch. They are trying their best, but it is just one of those things.

Kohli and Pujara departed, for 76 and 106 respectively, in Thursday's post-lunch session.

Pant and Sharma scored freely in the final half hour of play and Kohli ultimately decided against forcing Australia to bowl for a third-consecutive day, instead opting to try and take a vital wicket of two.

"Yes I have not played a Test in India but whenever you go to different countries, you have new learning and experiences from playing in every country".

Instead, the indictment is meant to send a message to China about how seriously the United States takes such hacking cases . The charges were filed as a larger campaign by the U.S.to curb efforts by the Chinese to steal American trade secrets.

Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins delivered a combined 93.4 overs in what was the longest innings in a MCG Test since 1983.

Pujara, who batted for a total of 11 hours at Adelaide Oval in a man-of-the-match effort that helped India to win the series opener, spent nearly eight hours at the crease during his second ton on tour. We wanted to take this result away from them. "Wicket feels pretty good still, so everyone feels like in the second innings they can face more balls and get going", he added.

"We have bowled a lot of overs as well".

Bumrah's best delivery came when Shaun Marsh was trapped lbw with a slower yorker at the stroke of lunch. We take a look at all the numbers from a topsy-turvy day where 15 wickets fell.

Shaun Marsh showed a lot of discipline and nearly saw through the session but was flummoxed by a superb slower one by Bumrah off the last ball before lunch to be dismissed LBW for 19, leaving Australia in despair.

"I think we have enough runs on the board".
