IND vs AUS 3rd Test: In the test match between India and Australia at Indore, Team India got caught in its trap. Like Nagpur and Delhi, the Indian team management set up a spin track in Indore, but here Australia’s spinners dominated so much that half the team returned to the India pavilion before 50 runs were even completed.
Indian captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and chose to bat in this match being held at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. Australian captain Steve Smith first bowled the ball to fast bowlers Mitchell Starc and Cameron Green. Here, the Indian batsmen started making bold runs to the fast bowlers. After this, as soon as Captain Smith gave the ball to his spinners, the Indian team went down on their knees.
The Indian team scored 27 runs without losing a wicket and lost 5 wickets for 18 runs. Australian spinners took these five wickets. Mathew Kuhneman and Nathan Lyon sent half of the Indian team to the pavilion at a total of 45 runs.
Kuhneman and Lyon bowled brilliantly
Matthew Kuhneman, who made his debut in red ball cricket from the Delhi Test, created havoc in his second Test. Kuhneman took only two wickets in his Test debut. But in his second Test, Kuhneman gave 3 shocks to Team India in the first four overs. First, skipper Rohit Sharma (12) took a behind-the-wicket catch and then sent opener Shubman Gill (21) to the pavilion in his very next over.
Even though Nathan Lion rained after Kuhneman, Cheteshwar Pujara (1) and Ravindra Jadeja (4) were not given a chance to stand up. In the 12th over of the match, Kuhneman dismissed Shreyas Iyer (0) and gave the fifth blow to the Indian team. In this way, this spin pair made Team India lose 5 wickets for a total of 45 runs.
