Yadav to Maxwell, no run, the bat has broke. Maxwell is left with just the handle in his hand. Maxwell defends a length ball - 137ks - properly. The ball hits the upper third, and the bat is gone. Even his bat is not used to being used for so long

O'Keefe to Vijay, 1 run, Vijay gets to 50 in his 50th Test. A patient innings. A big innings for him and for India. Pushes one slightly to the left of short cover, and sets off for the single


india 133-1

Lyon to Vijay, no run, appeal for bat-pad and this is not out. Turns past the inside edge and lobs off the pad alone. Hang on. Clear inside edge there. Australia have no reviews left. India getting the rub of the green here

Cummins to Kohli, OUT, Kohli is gone. Sharp catch at second slip. Pin-drop silence in Ranchi. He is walking slowly. They are checking for a no-ball. He is well in. A loose shot. Wide half-volley, no feet, he drives at it, and the edge flies to second slip, who has crept up because of the low bounce. This one flies at him, giving him little reaction time. He leans back, absorbs the momentum of it, and takes it clean as a whistle. 6



india 226-3

you can't listen to fakeinfo:
A loose shot. Wide half-volley

Sometimes you have to wonder which game these clowns are reporting. Watch the replay, it was on or around off stump and Kohl was beaten by the late away swing.

Pujara, Saha and Jadeja lead India off the field. What an effort this has been. They began the day 91 runs behind, and faced a spirited Australian attack, but Pujara and Saha soldiered on to give them a lead from where only one team can win the Test. Pujara faced 525 balls for his 202,
Saha scored his third century, and Australia were just bowled into the ground. Poor O'Keefe bowled 77 overs. The fast bowlers sent in 44 and 39. With a blister on his spinning finger, Lyon wheeled in for 46 overs. Is this the day India crushed the spirit of Australia?

Its all about team.
Both team seem to be as fit as a fiddle, India with only four bowlers, Pujara and Saha putting their heads down and getting the team a lead, and then the two Aussies batting between lunch and Tea, saving the match.
A very good test match.
