India is on the lead by 298 runs by the tea break on the third day of Melbourne test. Jasprit Bumrah played the pivotal role in collapsing the Australian innings by picking three wickets and conceding 32 runs. Due to variations in the bounce, Australians lost quick wickets by the end of the first session.

Australians are currently in the fifth rank in the ICC rankings for tests and they are striving hard to fight the toppers in the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Indians took two days to post a solid score against the hosts and just two sessions to collapse the Australian innings. Australians are 8/0 at the beginning of the day and lost four wickets by the end of the first session of the third day before lunch.

Aaron Finch lost his wicket to Ishant Sharma at the score of 8 runs and Marcus Harris fell to Jasprit Bumrah at the score of 22 runs.  He was caught at leg off while trying for a shot. Usman Khwaja was also caught near the leg off in the spell of Ravindra Jadeja at the score of 21 runs.

Bumrah struck again to pick the wicket of Shaun Marsh when he was at 19 runs just before the lunch. Again, he succeeded to dismiss Travis Head at the score of 20 runs when Australia’s score was 92/5. Mitchell Marsh fell to Ravindra Jadeja at nine and now the Australian tail-enders are struggling hard against Indian bowlers at the score of 145-7.
