Ajinkya Rahane has reached his fifty on Day Three of the third Test between India and Australia in Melbourne. Rahane has been batting very well and this has been a reward for some good application from him. India are up against 530 scored by Australia and they are getting into a decent position.

Rahane had started off very fast and has continued to keep up the tempo and has gone off to play very well. India are trying to get back in the game after they had allowed the Australians to come into the game on Day Two, with Steven Smith scoring a big knock. This is what happens when you allow the tail to wag.

Earlier, Australia had won the toss and had elected to bat first. Joe Burns is debuting for them. On the other hand, India brought in KL Rahul, who gets his Test cap. Mohammed Shami has replaced Varun Aaron. Australia are leading the series 2-0 after winning the first two Tests in Adelaide and Brisbane. Steven Smith’s 192 helped Australia score 530 in the first innings
