The dismissal of Rishabh Pant, trying to uppercut Josh Hazlewood, prompted the declaration from <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/virat-kohli/news/" target="_blank">Virat Kohli</a> to leave <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/australia/" target="_blank">Australia</a> a target of 399 in just under six sessions at the MCG. <p></p> <p></p>Pant departed to Hazlewood as <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/india/" target="_blank">India</a>'s eighth wicket at 106, with a lead of 398. From the sidelines, Kohli immediately stood up and beckoned his batsmen back as he headed up the MCG stairs to the dressing room.

Cummins had his sixth when Ravindra Jadeja spooned a catch to point where Usman Khawaja swooped in, and then Pant's attempted waft at Hazlewood was pouched by Tim Paine.
