Australia have moved to a very good start in their second innings on Day Four of the third Test against India at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Australia have now stretched their lead over 100 and David Warner has continued to attack the bowlers. The interesting thing is that Warner is carrying an injury and yet was  batting well. Warner has been dismissed though as Ravichandran Ashwin trapped him leg-before. Australia are 57 for one.

Warner has taken the attack to the opposition with an amazing performance. He has punished anything wide and has helped Australia get into a much better position after they wrapped up the Indian innings early in the day. India have to face a tough task later in the day and they will now struggle to win this game, if that is a possibility.

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. India were bowled out for 465 following Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane’s spirited stand.
