Rohit, Pujara perish; India in trouble
June 10, 2023  21:12

India 93-3 (21 ovs) vs Aus; Target: 444 | Scorecard

Spin introduced as Nathan Lyon comes into the attack, to bowl the 20th over.

Pujara uses his feet and pushes the first ball into the leg side before he inside edges the next on the leg side and then takes a single.

Lyon strikes with the big wicket of Rohit, who misses the paddle sweep and is given out leg before wicket after a good innings of 43 from 60 balls.

Rohit takes the review but to no avail. The ball has struck in line and is going on to hit the off-stump as Lyon strikes a key blow for Australia.

India are 92/2 in 20 overs, needing another 352 runs for victory.

Cummins bowls another no-ball as he oversteps with Pujara happy to block everything at the moment.

India need a big partnership from the experienced duo of Pujara and Kohli to stay in the contest.

But Cummins leaves India in a mess with the vital wicket of Pujara, who tries to play the ramp shot but gets it off the toe end and is caught behind for 27.

Two wickets in the space of six balls as India find themselves in trouble on 93/3 in the 21st over.

Rahane was struck on the fingers by a short ball in the first innings and didn't come out to field in Australia's second innings. No surprise that Cummins greets him with a quick bouncer which he sways out of the way and defends the last ball.
