Mohali: Mar 18, 2013

India will look to bowl out Australia as early as possible on Day Five of the third Test at Mohali with the visitors on 75 for three. Australia lead India by just 16 runs and have seven wickets in hand.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s triple strike put India on their way to a memorable win.  India were bowled out for 499 in their first innings, following an inspired five-wicket haul from Peter Siddle. Trailing by 91 runs and 21 overs to bat in the day, the visitors had only one option if they wanted to garner any hope of coming back into this series. The instructions from the dressing room would have been to erase the deficit as soon as possible, ideally on Sunday itself.
 
David Warner walked out to play his natural game, not needing any instructions to hit out. However, the New South Welshman perhaps took the aggression a bit too far as he slashed out at a wide away-moving delivery from Bhuvneshwar. Warner (2) could only find the edge that was pouched gleefully by MS Dhoni and it was a wicket that Australia could have avoided.
 
The youngster from Uttar Pradesh took his second wicket of the innings after changing ends. Ed Cowan (8) was the victim who was trapped in front by the 23-year-old. Steven Smith then came in No 4, which meant Michael Clarke did not want to bat that evening. The Australian captain was suffering from a stiff back while fielding and had taken a couple of breaks in the middle.
 
Bhuvneshwar soon got his third of the evening as he bowled a ripper through Smith’s defence. The ball drifted in towards the batsman and Smith understandably played for the inswinger. But the ball straightened after pitching and sent the off-stump on a hike. Australia were in trouble here, as nightwatchman Nathan Lyon walked in.

Brief Scores: Australia 408 and 75/3 (Phil Hughes 53*, Bhuvneshwar Kumar 2 for 25) trail India 499 (Shikhar Dhawan 187, Murali Vijay 153; Peter Siddle 5 for 71) by 16 runs.
