Vihari was the first to go after he lobbed a catch back to Mitchell Starc. The freely-attacking Pant was dismissed Lyon after <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/peter-handscomb/">Peter Handscomb</a> picked up a good catch diving low at mid-on. <p></p> <p></p>It was just a matter of time before Australia romped home. Umesh Yadav added just two before he returned a simple catch to Starc. Ishant Sharma edged it behind off Pat Cummins, while Jasprit Bumrah hit a skier off Cummins as the hosts sealed the win with two Tests to go on Boxing Day at Melbourne on December 26. <p></p> <p></p>The fourth and final Test begins on January 3 at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
