  • Australia vs India 4th Test Washington Sundar Shardul Thakur Lead Indias Fightback As Australia Take 54 Run Lead On Day 3

India was finally bundled out for 336, handing Australia a lead of 33 runs.

The partnership formed with India in trouble at 186 for 6 in reply to Australia's 369, and with no more recognised batsmen in the pavilion, added 123 runs - an Indian record for the seventh wicket at the Gabba. The hosts are leading by 54 runs. To win the series, they need to score runs quickly on Monday with the aim of setting a big target and then bowl out India.

The partnership was finally broke by pacer Pat Cummins as he sent Thakur (67) back to the hut in the final session of the game. The debutant amassed 62 runs studded with six and seven fours. They were not even part of India's original squad but were shoehorned into the team following injuries to frontline bowlers. But a massive wicket for Australia as Hazlewood manages to draw an outside edge with Paine doing the rest.

Shardul and Sundar joined forces at the crease when India was in a spot of bother at 186/6 and the visitors were looking to avoid being bundled out in a hurry.

The duo mixed caution with aggression and both batsmen were up to the task of capitalizing on the loose balls.

While Washington Sundar got a fifty on his debut and finished with 62, Shardul Thakur got 67 in his first batting innings in his 2nd Test. Sunil Gavaskar acknowledged that he didn't expect the Indian duo to put up a fighting spirited batting display but enjoyed every run scored by them.

At the tea break, India's score read 253/6. Resuming the second session at 161/4, India got off to a bad start as Mayank Agarwal (38) lost his wicket to Josh Hazlewood in just the first over of the session and the visitors were given a major blow.

Then to compound India's problems, Pant did the same to Hazlewood, only to be caught in the gully by Green for 23.

Regular captain Virat Kohli led the tributes to Shardul Thakur's courageous batting in the Brisbane decider but the number eight batsman was underwhelmed by his praise as he never considered himself a dud with the bat. Australia were 21-0 at the end of the third day's play.

Hazlewood struck twice after the lunch break to rattle the tourists.

"It all depends on probably the weather as well, a bit of rain forecast in the afternoon on both days, so that could come into calculations but, we will bat normal for the first two sessions tomorrow and see where we are". The duo achieved the feat against Australia on day three of the ongoing fourth and final Test. Marnus Labuschagne had top-scored for Australia as he played a knock of 108 runs.
