Smith 'chucks a Kohli' with cheap dismissal

Smith 'chucks a Kohli' with cheap dismissal

"Credit to the groundsman, the wicket held together beautifully". They each had a DRS lbw scare shortly before their 50s, Handscomb surviving on 44 against Umesh Yadav and Marsh on 48 against Ravi Ashwin.

Smith felt that Australia's showing in Ranchi means the momentum will be with the visitors going into the series deciding final Test in Dharamsala.

The tourists eventually reached 204 for 6 at stumps on the fifth and final day, after the hosts made a mammoth 603-9 declared in their first innings in Ranchi. We took the new ball and got a couple of wickets.

Pujara's 202, compiled over 525 deliveries, was the third double hundred of his career and second against the Baggy Greens, while Saha's third Test ton provided steely support. These two partnerships are also two of the three longest stands of this series in terms of balls.

Matt Renshaw will restart on seven not out, with captain Steve Smith due to join him. Of course, it wasn't a victory but batting more than a day to fend off defeat in India - despite the blandness of the pitch and the perplexing swoon of star spinner Ravichandran Ashwin - feels like a moral victory for an exhausted Australian team.

India crossed 300 by tea trailing Australia by 148 runs with the loss of four wickets.

"On day five, wicket slows down anyway".

# Both Vijay and Pujara batting easily. And now it was Australian wicketkeeper Matthew Wade's turn but he failed miserably. Virat Kohli was witnessed practising in the nets and India will hope that their skipper is full fit to bat.

Australia have passed a searching examination of their mettle by overcoming India's spin masters on Ranchi's so-called craters of doom to secure a backs-to-the-wall draw in the third Test.

The pair, along with Glenn Maxwell's breakthrough century earlier in the Test, proved Australia is building far more depth beyond Smith and Warner, who has jarringly become the underperforming batsman in the team.

Smith, who scored a spectacular 178 not out in the first innings to lead Australia to 451, misjudged a probing line from Jadeja with the ball pitching between middle and leg. Opener KL Rahul contributed with solid 67 runs before being caught on the bowling of Cummins. "People need to stand up and take notice of what he has done this season, he has been outstanding with the bat and hopefully he will continue that in the last Test".

"But where we were in the first innings, 450 [451] was the [Australian] score and we were 320-odd for 6".

However, Australia kept things tight leaving Vijay and Pujara (130 not out) just 13 runs in the first 10 overs of the day.

The Western Australian's 53 should go a long way to ending his reputation as one of the underachievers in Australian cricket.

Australia's captain Steven Smith walks off the field after his dismissal. That was teh last wicket to fall as Virat Kohli shook hands with Peter Handscomb to accept a draw with the Aussies on 204/6 after playing 100 overs in their second innings.
