Border-Gavaskar Trophy, 2020-21

Australia vs India - 2nd Test

Venue: Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Melbourne

Date: 26 December-30 December, 2020

India 70/2

RR: 4.42 | India beat Australia by 8 wickets

commentary

Right! 70 is what India need to level the series. The fact that the conditions are pretty good to bat, they should chase it down easily. However, they will remember their score of last match's second innings and would not want to get carried away. Australia, if they can strike early, can put the visitors under some pressure. Join us for India's 2nd innings in a short while.

The man who got India the breakthrough in the morning, Jasprit Bumrah is caught for a quick chat. Bumrah says that he is really happy with their performance with the ball. Tells that they had decided not to complain about having one bowler short. Adds that they decided to help the new members coming in the team. On him being the leader of the attack, Bumrah says that they had decided to help each other. On his performance from the last 2 games, Bumrah says that he doesn't look at the stats because that will put unnecessary pressure on him and would rather focus on doing the basics correct. 

The day started with the two Aussie overnight batters continuing their fight. They nearly managed to remain unscathed in the first hour of the morning before a snorter from Bumrah got the better of Cummins. Green continued the battle along with Starc but was removed eventually by Siraj on 45 as he tried to play a pull shot. The other batters resisted a bit before Ashwin removed Hazlewood in the last over of the extended first session. The bowlers didn't put themselves under any sort of pressure and just kept bowling good lines and lengths and they were sure about the rewards which eventually came their way. In spite of having one man short, they worked well to bundle out the Aussies.

Another session to India and they inch closer to the victory. They had to work hard in this session as Green and Cummins resisted well. However, once the stand got broken, it was only about how long they can survive. They did manage to do it for a decent amount of period but they needed runs. They got just 68 in this extended morning session of Day 4 which means India need 70.

Ravichandran Ashwin to Josh Hazlewood, OUT! TIMBER! Ashwin with the success. A flat ball around middle and leg, Hazlewood thinks that it will spin away way too much as he shoulders arms. To his dismay, the ball clips the off pole and takes the bails along with it. Australia are bowled out for 200. India need 70 to level the series.

Final over before the Lunch break coming up.

LBW appeal taken upstairs. Has Ashwin got his man? The umpire thinks otherwise but the Indians go for the review. There is no bat, confirmed by Hot Spot. Nothing on RTS either. Time for the Ball Tracker. Umpire's call on hitting the wickets.

Ravichandran Ashwin to Mitchell Starc, NOT OUT! Umpire's call on hitting the wickets. Starc survives a calls that could've gone against him. Flighted ball on the pads, Starc looks to work it on the leg side but misses to get his on the pads. The Indians put in a loud appeal but it is turned down. Rahane goes for the review. Hot Spot and RTS confirm no bat. Ball Tracker shows it would just clip the leg pole. So, Starc stays to continue the battle. India keep their review.

Jasprit Bumrah to Mitchell Starc, Another bumper! This time to the new man. Starc has no clue how to deal with it. Tries to duck but is late in doing so. The ball takes the top edge and goes to fine leg. The fielder there does well to stop the ball. They check with the third umpire and it is a good save. End of a superb over from Bumrah.

Drinks! The first hour has all been about patience for both the teams. Australia almost managed to go unscathed but then Bumrah came up with unplayable ball to Cummins and now India have an opening. How long the tail will survive?  Mitchell Starc is the new batsman in at number 9.

After bowling length deliveries outside off, this time Bumrah bends his back and bowls a short ball around middle and leg. Cummins is caught in an awkward position as he hops and tries to fend it off. All he does is lobs the ball off the gloves to Agarwal at second slip. A gritty knock from Cummins but that was an unplayable ball from Bumrah.

Ravichandran Ashwin to Pat Cummins, NOT OUT! Missing leg and going over too. India lose a review. A quicker one around middle and leg, Cummins pads it away and the Indians appeal but not out says the umpire. Ashwin thinks he has got his man. Rahane thinks, thinks and just thinks. And then at the last moment, takes the review. Doesn't help India as the Ball Tracker shows it is missing the leg pole.

Review time! India have gone for a review against Cummins. Rahane went for it almost at the end of the timer! Let's see what the repalys have to show.

Ravichandran Ashwin to Pat Cummins, Huge appeal from Ashwin but turned down. Pant tells Ashwin that it won't hit the stumps. No review from the Indians. This is again tossed up and is bowled on middle and leg, Cummins pads it away again as Ashwin appeals but nothing from the umpire. Replay later rolled in and it showed it would've gone over the timbers and it would've missed it by some margin.

Jasprit Bumrah to Cameron Green, Runs straightaway! A length ball around off from Bumrah to begin, Green pushes it to the right of the fielder at point and they go for a quick single. He has a shy at the non-striker's end but he misses. The Aussies get one more in the form of overthrows as there is no one to back it up.

We are ready to start Day 4. The Indian players take the field following the two umpires. Cameron Green and Pat Cummins make their way out to the middle as well. The duo managed to frustrate the Indians in the final hour of Day 3 as they batted over 100 deliveries. That's what will be their aim once again. However, they will need to keep scoring runs as well. Jasprit Bumrah has got the ball first up. He would look to provide the early breakthrough to the Indians. All in readiness. Here we go... 

Rishabh Pant is caught for a quick chat. On the discussion at the end of Day 3, Pant says that Rahane said that they need to concentrate and keep it simple and bowl good lines. Tells that he has no idea about Yadav's injury and he needs to ask the same to the physio. On him missing the first Test, Pant says that it's part and parcel of the game. Says he has been training hard and once he gets the chance, he looks to help the team do good. On keeping in Australia, Pant says that he is adjusting with respect to bounce. Tells that key on these wickets is to give yourself a bit of space when keeping against the likes of Ashwin and Jadeja. On his banter with Wade, Pant says that he enjoys every bit of it. Adds that Wade wanted to get going with some sort of discussion to concentrate but adds he didn't want to let him do that.

Hello and welcome to Day 4 of the Boxing Day Test between Australia and India. The game is poised well and truly in the favour of the Indian side and Rahane's men would look to seal the deal in the first session itself. They would not want the pair of Cummins and Green to get settle again and frustrate them. Australia, on the other hand, knows they are in big trouble and would want these two to continue batting as long as possible. Will they be able to do so or will Bumrah and others roll them over? We will get all the answers once the action resumes. Stay tuned.

... Day 4, Session 1 ...

So, that ends another enthralling day's play! India will feel they are well on top of this match. They just need 4 wickets to bundle the Aussies and that they would look to do in the first session of Day 4. Australia, on the other hand, would want these two to bat long. Will they be able to do so? We will find out all these things on Day 4. The action will begin at 1030 local (2330 GMT Previous Day). Join us for that. For now, it is goodbye from our end.

Indian skipper, Ajinkya Rahane, is caught for a quick chat. Rahane says that the bowlers came out strong and bowled tight lines. Says it was unfortunate to miss out Yadav. Adds that captaincy is all about backing the instincts. Credits the bowlers for bowling on right lines and lengths. On his century, Rahane says that getting to a hundred while captaining the side is always special. Feels his century at Lord's is his best knock. On him patting Jadeja after getting run out, Rahane says that he told him to not think about the run out and carry on his innings. On asked if the same was said to him by skipper Kohli in the first Test, Rahane tells that he got out quickly after Kohli's wicket and adds Kohli told him it is okay.

The second session saw India get Burns early and then Wade and Labuschagne put on a fight. Ashwin removed Labuschagne to break the stand and then along with Smith, Wade fought hard to stay in the middle in the entire second session. However, the final session of the day turned things around quickly for the visitors as they took control of the game with quick wickets.

The day started with India losing their 5 wickets for just 32 runs but they extended their lead to 131. The collapse happened after Rahane got run out trying to steal a run for Jadeja so that he gets to his half ton. Jadeja eventually got there but soon joined Rahane in the pavilion after a barrage of short balls from Starc troubled him. The Aussies then finished the Indian innings quickly with Starc and Lyon getting 3 each.

Once again it was Bumrah who opened the floodgates for the Indians with the wicket of Smith. Jadeja then got the ball and struck twice quickly to force Australia on the back foot. Siraj too got a wicket. India would be disappointed a bit towards the end where they couldn't get past Green and Cummins and allowed the duo to bat over 100 balls.

What a session for India! Wade and Smith arrived in the middle and offered some resistance before Bumrah got the better of Smith as he bowled him around his legs. Wade then battled for a while with Head but once Wade fell, Australia crumbled as they lost three wickets for just 2 runs. Green and Cummins then batted really well to stitch a small partnership and make the Indian bowlers work hard. With this gritty stand, the duo made sure the Aussies have taken the lead now.

Not out says the umpire but Rahane goes for the review straightaway. The Hot Spot rolls in. Nothing on it. RTS detects the bat. The onfield call has to be changed. OUT it is and Paine departs. What a review from Rahane. India all over Australia at the moment.

Review time! Indians have taken a caught behind appeal upstairs.

Mohammed Siraj to Travis Head, OUT! CAUGHT! Siraj strikes on the first ball of his new spell. What an amazing bowling change from Rahane. Half the Aussie side are back in the hut. Siraj is fired up and why not. Australia in all sorts of trouble. A good length ball outside off, Head throws his bat at it as he looks to cut but ends up getting a thick outside edge. It goes straight to Mayank at second slip who takes it easily. Head falls cheaply again.

Ravindra Jadeja to Matthew Wade, OUT! LBW! Three reds and Wade departs. That looked plumb and Wade knew it but he took the review sensing the importance of this wicket. A quicker one from Jadeja, it is the slider from him. Wade looks to work it on the leg side but misses to get rapped on the pad. The Indians appeal and the finger goes up. Wade is distraught as he knows he is a goner but he takes the review. The technology won't help him as it shows three reds on the Ball Tracker. He has to go. Waste of a review from him. A good, fighting knock from Wade though.

Review time! Wade has been given out LBW! He looks plumb but he goes for the review. Don't think there is any bat Hot Spot and RTS confirms the same. Ball Tracker rolls in and three reds it is. Wade has to go. A review gone too.

Jasprit Bumrah to Steven Smith, OUT! TIMBER! Smith is not sure what happened but the bails are disloged! Smith has been bowled around his legs. He is not sure and is hanging around. A length ball around middle and leg, Smith shuffles across the off side, like he always does and tries to work this one on the leg side but he misses. That doesn't happen often but it has happened here. And the ball goes on to dislodge the bail from the leg and middle pole. Smith is not sure what happened as Bumrah and the Indians celebrate. Smith hangs around and the onfield umpire asks the help from the TV umpire. And one replay is enough. Smith has to go. It is yet another failure for him in this series. A massive, massive moment in the game.

Jasprit Bumrah to Steven Smith, Run straightaway for Smith! A length ball around off, Smith pushes it towards mid on and calls for a run.

Time for the final session of the moving day of the Test match. India still with an advantage as their players take the field. Matthew Wade and Steven Smith follow them out in the middle as well. Jasprit Bumrah to start after Tea.

... Day 3, Final Session ...

The Indians were right on the money as Umesh struck early to dismiss Burns for another low score. Umesh though left the field after having issues with his calf and after that Wade along with Labuschagne controlled things nicely and added 38 between them. Most of the runs came off the bat of Marnus who looked more positive than Wade. But as the stand between the two was growing, Ashwin struck and got the better of Labuschagne. Smith and Wade after that managed to see off the remaining session. The task for them will get bigger when they come out to bat in the final session of the day. India would look to get the big fish Smith and then they can maybe breathe a bit easy. The final session coming your way shortly.

That was some brilliant stuff from Ashwin and Wade in the final over! Good from Pant as well as he kept talking throughout the over and put pressure on Wade! Test cricket at its absolute best! The session one would feel has gone to both the teams.

Wade fails to put bat on ball and is hit on the pad. They appeal but not out says the umpire. That looked to pitching outside leg but Siraj is absolutely sure that he has got his man. Rahane goes with the bowler. And well, replays show it to be a poor call as it has pitched way outside leg. Poor, poor review.

Another review from India. This is against Wade for LBW. Once again Siraj is absolutely certain and Rahane goes with the bowler. Time for the replays! Noting on Hot Spot and nothing either on RTS. Ball Tracker again. It is pitching outside leg. This time India lose a review.

Mohammed Siraj to Marnus Labuschagne, Short ball outside off, Marnus pulls this uppishly but just falls wide of the square leg fielder and they take a single. Labuschagne is living dangerously here.

Review time! Rahane wasn't too sure but he went with his bowler. Time for Hot Spot first. No bat on it and nothing on the RTS either. Time for Ball Tracker. Pitching in line, impact in line but umpire's call on hitting the wickets.

Mohammed Siraj to Marnus Labuschagne, NOT OUT! Umpire's call on hitting the wickets, AGAIN! Luck with Labuschagne here. A length ball that is pitched outside off, it comes back in sharply and hits the pad as he fails to connect. It looked to be hitting him high on the pads but Rahane takes the review. Replays show everything is perfect but it is just clipping the stumps. So, Marnus survives. A good review from India though as it could've gone either way.

DRINKS! Australia have done well in spite of losing a wicket in this hour! Indians have not bowled badly but they have given away easy singles and that has not helped them one bit. Umesh's absence in the middle will hurt them more. Let's see how the Indian bowlers return post this mini-break.

Burns has been given out caught behind now. He has taken the review with moments left on the timer. The Hot Spot detects the edge. Burns goes and takes the review along with him.

Umesh Yadav to Joe Burns, OUT! CAUGHT! This time Burns has to go. A superb delivery from Yadav. This one pitches just around off and then goes away just a hint. Burns has to play at it. And he does that but only ends up getting a nick behind. Pant makes no mistake and the Indians celebrate. However, Burns gets to his partner at the other end and decides to challenge the onfield call, at the very last moment. Time for the replays. And only one is all we need. The Hot Spot detects a faint outside edge. Another failure for Burns and this time he takes a review along with him. Poor from the Aussie opener. An unplayable ball from Umesh though that would've got best of the batsmen out.

Jasprit Bumrah to Joe Burns, NOT OUT! Burns survives. The umpire's call saves Burns here. A terrific delivery from Bumrah. He runs in and bowls a perfect yorker. Burns looks to flick but he falls over as he tries to play across the line. He misses and the Indians appeal but the umpire turns it down. Rahane goes for the review after having a word with the bowler and other close-in fielders. Replays show that it has hit the shoes. But Ball Tracker confirms it to be umpire's call on hitting the wickets. A good review from India.

Review time! Where's that hit him? It has hit the shoes. Ball Tracker time! Pitching in line, impact is in line as well but wickets umpire's call. Burns stays. India keep their review.

Umesh Yadav to Joe Burns, Good leave! This one pitches around off and moves a touch as Burns shoulders arms. It goes just over the stumps.

Right! We are back for the second session! The Indian players are in a huddle near the rope. They now disperse to take their positions in the field. Joe Burns and Matthew Wade stride out to open the Aussie innings. In the first innings, Burns fell for a duck while Wade looked decent for his knock. They will have to play a big role if the Aussies are to get to a good score. Jasprit Bumrah will take the new ball for India. He was the one who gave the first wicket to the Indians. Rahane will want it from him again. Three men catching at slips, one at gully. Here we go...

Jasprit Bumrah to Matthew Wade, Appeal straightaway! A loud one from India but not out says the umpire. A length ball around the pads, Wade looks to work it out on the leg side but misses to get hit on the pad. They all go up in appeal but nothing from the umpire. No review from India and a good call because replay shows it was pitched outside leg.
