Cummins to Pant - FOUR!

FOUR! Half volley outside off stump and Pant is all over it, he has smashed it for another boundary.

Jan 11, 2021 6:38 AM IST

India vs Australia 3rd Test Day 5: HUGE APPEAL!

LBW SHOUT!!?? Umpire is not interested. The height seems to be the factor. Aussies know, and this was a mere desperate shout it seems. Aussies need a wicket.

Jan 11, 2021 6:35 AM IST

Starc to Pant - FOUR!

FOUR! Starc goes short and this has been pulled hard by Rishabh Pant, and the ball races to the boundary ropes for four. Fantastic batting by Pant and he is taking this game away.

Jan 11, 2021 6:30 AM IST

'Well bowl, Gary!'

Excellent over from Nathan Lyon as the day progresses slowly towards this Lunch. If Australia get a wicket here in the next two overs, then it would turn the tide of the game.

Jan 11, 2021 6:21 AM IST

In the air...

Shouts of "catch it," but it landed just ahead of the fielder. Anyhow it seemed like hitting the pads. India 170/3

Jan 11, 2021 6:15 AM IST

Pant's stats attack

Pant’s fifty

3rd Test fifty, 1st vs AUS

2nd fifty plus score in AUS, both have come at Sydney.

1st while batting at #5.

3rd IND WK to score two fifty plus scores in the 4th innings of the Test.

Deep Dasgupta- 2

Syed Kirmani- 2

R Pant- 2

Jan 11, 2021 6:12 AM IST

Pant counter-attacks

FOUR! Rishabh Pant carries on after scoring his half century. He has taken the game to the opposition here in Sydney. If he survives till Lunch, it will be a big boost for India.

Jan 11, 2021 6:08 AM IST

Fifty for Rishabh Pant

Pant gets to his fifty with a backfoot punch to the off side. Fifty off just 64 balls for the left-hander. This has been a gutsy innings from him.

Jan 11, 2021 6:06 AM IST

Twin sixes for Pant

SIX! SIX! Rishabh Pant has turned the heat on says Murali Kartik on commentary and he is right. Pant is on the move, problems for Australia. India 167/3

Jan 11, 2021 6:01 AM IST

Starc into the attack

Just the two overs for Labuschagne. We now have Mitchell Starc from the other end and the crowd immediately sense something, some cheers and claps for the Australian left-arm quick.

Jan 11, 2021 6:00 AM IST

Lyon bowls a maiden

This a great contest between these two now. Pant is constantly trying to get on top of Lyon and the experienced off-spinner is setting up plans to get him out. He bowls a maiden to the Indian left-hander.

Jan 11, 2021 5:57 AM IST

3 runs from first over after drinks

Marnus Labuschagne continues after the drinks break for Australia. No real problems for Pant and Pujara, they take three singles. India 155/3

Jan 11, 2021 5:48 AM IST

150 up for India

Pulled away from Pant! Some good work at the mid wicket fence from Will Pucovski prevents the boundary but Pant will get three runs. 150 up for India and this is also the 50 partnership between Pant and Pujara.

Jan 11, 2021 5:47 AM IST

Edged and four

Just one slip and it goes through exactly where the second slip would have been. Pant's attacking instincts have forced Paine to get a slip out and this time it works to his advantage. A full one outside off from Hazlewood, Pant goes hard at it, gets an outside edge and it goes wide from the first slip fielder for a for.

Jan 11, 2021 5:45 AM IST

Pujara hits a four

Pujara lashes on to the full toss provided by Marnus Labuschagne. The India No.3 did get a few short deliveries in this over but didn't quite manage to find the gap but this time he dances down the track to and hits the full toss to the left of mid on for a boundary. India 144/3

Jan 11, 2021 5:40 AM IST

Count the maidens

Relentless Hazlewood bowls another maiden to Pujara. While Pant continues to attack Lyon, Hazlewood is working on his own gameplan against Pujara.

Jan 11, 2021 5:36 AM IST

Pant is attacking Lyon

8 runs off the over, two boundaries in it. The previous Lyon over had yielded 13. So Rishabh Pant has launched a calculated attack on the Australian off-spinner. India 138/3

Jan 11, 2021 5:34 AM IST

Pant cuts Lyon

FOUR! Short and wide from Lyon, first real loosener from him today, perhaps it is an affect of the previous over's charge from Pant. The left-hander rocks back to cut it through the off side for a four.

Jan 11, 2021 5:33 AM IST

Good from Hazlewood

A very good over from big Australian. He got Pujara guessing there. But so far so good for India too. This Pant, Pujara partnership is doing well.

Jan 11, 2021 5:27 AM IST

Pant opening up his arms

FOUR! SIX! Aggression from Pant. He danced down the track to Lyon and hits for a four followed by a six. Australia shouldn't mind this at all. They have got enough runs on the board but some entertainment for all of us. It is always around the corner when Pant is batting. India 129/3

Jan 11, 2021 5:21 AM IST

Hazlewood on the money

These Australian fast bowlers are relentless. Cummins goes Starc comes in, Starc takes a breather, Hazlewood steps up. It's a continuous battle. Hazlewood has started off with a maiden.

Jan 11, 2021 5:13 AM IST

Lyon keeps the pressure on

Another maiden from Lyon. He also trapped Pujara in front on the fifth ball too. Australia didn't opt for DRS but replays showed they would have retained it had they taken it.

Jan 11, 2021 5:07 AM IST

3 runs to Pujara

Driven straight down the ground. That's the second time Pujara has done that to Cummins today. This time, the timing not enough to take it to the fence but enough to allow Pujara to run three. India 115/3

Jan 11, 2021 5:01 AM IST

Consecutive maidens

The up and down nature of a fifth day track in full display now. Boy this will be a hard task for India to survive against perhaps the best bowling attack of the world and on this track. Another maiden from Cummins.

Jan 11, 2021 4:56 AM IST

Pant living dangerously

Pant got a genuine outside edge of Lyon's first delivery but Tim Paine could not hold on to it and he did not look that comfortable in the next five deliveries either. Encouraging signs for Australia, exactly the opposite for India.

Jan 11, 2021 4:54 AM IST

A false shot from Pant

Pant must have had his heart in his mouth there. Thankfully, for him it landed well in front of the deep square leg fielder. It was a nothing shot really. A short one from Cummins and Pant, not comfortable with the injury on his left elbow, tried to play a short of half pull shot and ended up getting a top edge.

Jan 11, 2021 4:50 AM IST

Maiden from Lyon

A quality over from the experienced off-spinner. He looked like getting a wicket every ball. Pujara looked nervous to say the least, his ploy of dancing down the track to every delivery may not be the ideal way on this Day 5 SCG track.

Jan 11, 2021 4:45 AM IST

Cummins to Pujara: FOUR

What a shot! Pujara has walk out with some real intent today. It was overpitched from Cummins and Pujara drives him straight down the ground to collect his first boundary of Day 5.

Jan 11, 2021 4:42 AM IST

Rishabh Pant in at No.5

India have promoted Pant at No.5. So all those doubting whether Pant will bat or not must have got their answer now. This should be interesting.

Jan 11, 2021 4:39 AM IST

Lyon gets Rahane

OUT! Ajinkya Rahane has been dismissed. What a start for Australia. A tossed-up delivery from Lyon, Rahane tries to defend, gets an inside edge and Wade at shortleg takes a sharp catch. Australia have a wicket on the second over of the day. India 102/3

Jan 11, 2021 4:38 AM IST

100 up for India

Pujara puts Lyon under pressure, goes down the track and flicks it past the mid wicket fielder to get three runs. 100 up for India. This is good signs if you are an Indian fan, Pujara is looking to be positive against Lyon.

Jan 11, 2021 4:37 AM IST

Nathan Lyon from the end

This is interesting, Australia have thrown the ball to Nathan on the second over of Day 5. They also know, the off-spinner holds the key on this surface today especially against the likes of Pujara and Rahane.

Jan 11, 2021 4:35 AM IST

First runs on Day 5

Pujara gets off the mark on Day 5 with a single down to leg side. He will breathe a sigh of relief to get down the other end. India 99/2

Jan 11, 2021 4:31 AM IST

Players out in the middle

The players are out in the centre. Pujara will face the first ball of Day 5 and it will be Pat Cummins for Australia.

Racism is not okay

The cricketing community came down strongly on the racial attacks on the Indian players on Day 3 and Day 4 of this Test match in Sydney. Mohammed Siraj has been hailed as a hero for standing up and reporting the matter to the official. Both the ICC and Cricket Australia have assured BCCI that strictest action will be taken against those who are guilty.

Jan 11, 2021 4:19 AM IST

Pant is seen with the bat in hand

Even as we speak, live pictures show Pant with the bat in hand in the nets. Like we said, he will bat. He may not be a 100% but he sure can do a job for the team.

Jan 11, 2021 4:17 AM IST

Will Rishabh Pant bat? What about Ravindra Jadeja?

As per the latest updates, Rishabh Pant did try to bat in the nets on Sunday with and without the strap on his left elbow and appeared to be in some discomfort but he is slated to bat. Ravindra Jadeja, who has dislocated his finger, however, is unlikely, unless there is some 10-12 overs to go and India are fighting to save the match. In that case, we might just see Jadeja come out to bat after taking pain killers and injections.

Jan 11, 2021 4:12 AM IST

What happened on Day 4

Resuming the day with a lead of 197, Australia piled declared for 312 for 6. Steve Smith was pillar with 81, Marnus Labuschagne hit 73 while young Cameron Green showed that he is the one for the future with an attacking 83 as Australia set India a difficult target of 407. In reply, India openers Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill put together the highest opening stand of this series before the latter was dismissed for 31. Rohit Sharma went on to slam his maiden fifty as an opener in overseas conditions before pulling one straight to file leg towards the end of Day 4. Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara took India to stumps at 98 for 2, still needing 309 runs to win.
