India vs Australia Live Score: Stumps, Day 4


What an excellent, and perhaps, a tad controversial day of Test cricket this has been? Day 4 started off an impressive half-century from Alex Carey, who received support from Mitchell Starc.

Then with the ball, the Aussies sent back 'baby GOAT' Shubman Gill early yet again, but skipper Rohit Sharma turned up to the occasion with a 43-run knock. For the umpteenth time, India lost two wickets in quick succession, with Cheteshwar Pujara following his captain back to the dressing room, but since, it has been all about a vintage Virat Kohli, and a classic Ajinkya Rahane. The former will end Day 4 on 44 not out, with the latter batting on 20.

India's score currently reads 164/3. They need 280 runs, and Australia need 7 wickets. Given the way India have paced their innings today, scoring at over four runs per over, the probability of a draw is not great. Their way or the highway? Or the way that will lead the mace to Down Under? 90 more overs, and the last day of the 'Ultimate Test' beckon. Like always, we will be bringing you all the live updates. Till then, good night!

India vs Australia Live Score: Tides Turning?

Momentum changing? Scales tipping to the other side? Tides turning?

It might be a bit too early to ask such questions, but credit must be given to Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane for inspiring hope in a gloomy Indian camp. The pair have batted brilliantly, with the former unbeaten on 40 and the latter batting on 20.

India are 160/3. Equation: India need 284 runs. Australia need 7 wickets.

India vs Australia Live Score: Kohli, Rahane Stop Wickets Procession

And, breathe.

After two wickets in the blink of an eye, it seems that Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane have been successful in their bid to stop the procession. 17 overs are left in day's play, and India's target will be to not lose any more wickets today.

India are 124/3. Equation: India need 320 runs. Australia need 7 wickets.

India vs Australia Live Score: Pujara Gone


We did say that today's version of Cheteshwar Pujara is not known to the Indian fans, and now, the batter has corroborated the statement by getting dismissed whilst playing a shot he almost never plays – the Virender Sehwag-esque upper cut. Pat Cummins bangs the delivery short, which Pujara edges and gives the simplest of catches to Alex Carey, who is in no mood to hand out freebies to India.

India are 93/3. Equation: India need 351 runs. Australia need 7 wickets.
