IND vs AUS: India all out for 109, Matthew Kuhnemann strikes 5 wickets
Seems like the pressure of sealing the 3rd Test to take a winning lead in the 4-match Test series of Border Gavaskar Trophy took over Team India. The Indian batting line up collapsed completely in the 3rd Test being played at Indore. And Aussies have dismissed the Indian team on a small total of 109 runs.
Australia will now have to score more than 110 runs to take a lead in the 3rd Test of Border Gavaskar Trophy. Half of the Indian team was sent back to the pavilion in just one hour and when Indian fans thought that former skipper Virat Kohli and KS Bharat were building a partnership, Aussie skipper Steve Smith sent in Todd Murphy to dismiss Kohli.
Steve Smith captaincy and fielding approaches proved to be far more better than Pat Cummins and seems like the skipper had decided to play aggressive on Indian pitches now. India has a lead of 2-0 in the 4-match Test series. But seems like Smith has decided to draw the series as they can’t win it now.

IND vs AUS: Australia’s bowling
Australian spinner Matthew Kuhnemann turned out to be a nightmare for the Indian team as he took 5 wickets of Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Shreyas, Ravichandran Ashwin and Umesh Yadav. He gave only 16 runs in 9 over and out of these 2 were maiden.
Second most wicket taker is Nathan Lyon. The Aussie bowler took 3 wickets of Pujara, Bharat and Jadeja and gave out just 11.2 runs in 35 overs.
The decision to bat first after winning the toss in Indore did not prove to be right for Rohit Sharma. Shubman Gill, Ravindra Jadeja, Shreyas Iyer, Cheteshwar Pujara, and captain Rohit Sharma were dismissed within an hour of the start of the match.
