Murali Vijay has been dismissed by Josh Hazlewood on Day Five of the third Test between India and Australia. India are chasing 384 to win and are already 19 for three. Virat Kohli is out in the middle and Ajinkya Rahane has joined him. Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul were the men dismissed before Vijay.

Hazlewood got a ball to get into Vijay and he missed. He was hit in front and the umpire gave him out. However, replays suggested that the ball would go down the leg-side, as Hawk-Eye also confirmed. Thus, Vijay can consider himself unlucky to get that decision. India are in big trouble and would look to Vijay and Rahane again.

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.
