New Delhi: The third Test match being played between India and Australia has reached an exciting turn. On the third day, Australia will have to score just 76 runs to win. Earlier on the second day, Team India got out after scoring just 163 runs. Rohit Sharma remained the topic of discussion in the middle of the match.
Dressing room became the subject of discussion
In fact, the captain went berserk in the dressing room while playing the players in defensive mode. He immediately called Ishaan Kishan and sent a message to Pujara and Akshar Patel for aggressive batting. After getting the captain’s message, Pujara hit a six, but he was dismissed after a while. After this, sensing the intention of the captain, Siraj also tried to hit a six, but he proved to be a failure.
Rohit Sharma became the face of Siraj when he was out
Siraj was playing as the last wicket. He took out 6 balls anyway, but he came too far from the crease to hit a big shot on Lion’s ball. The ball, lying on the right line, went straight into the stumps and scattered the bails. Captain Rohit Sharma was disappointed to see Siraj getting out like this. He put both his hands on his mouth and closed his eyes. This reaction of Rohit is becoming increasingly viral. Eventually Team India got out cheaply.

Cheteshwar Pujara played a brilliant inning
Cheteshwar Pujara scored the most runs for Team India on the difficult pitch of Indore. In his brilliant innings, he hit 59 runs in 142 balls hitting 5 fours and 1 six. Shreyas Iyer was dismissed for 26 and captain Rohit Sharma scored 12 runs. Australian bowler Nathan Lyon took 8 wickets while bowling brilliantly. Nonetheless, the third day will be crucial for both the teams. It remains to be seen how Australia fare while chasing the target of 76 runs.
