Team India is currently playing the 3rd Test against Australia which has started in 16th March, 2017. Australia won the toss and decided to bat first and in their first innings, team Aussie scored 451 runs by losing all wickets. In return, team India is still in batting and according to the last news, at the end of the 3rd day, India scored 360 runs by losing six wickets where Pujara achieved a century and his partner was Saha till the end of the day. So, they will start the 4th day the less than hundred runs behind than Australia.

Though, both teams fight very well in the third day but specially Pujara and Aussie bowler Cummins were destructive. Cummins started to show his magic at the end of the second day which was a little but in the third day, he completely unleashed his magic and destroyed the top orders of Indian batting. Only Pujara stood strong and made an amazing century in the match. Cummins took four wickets by the end of the 3rd day with his magical spell.

Australia and India both teams have won one match each and this is the 3rd Test. If any team could manage just one more victory, then they could win the series as well. But, it seems that the 3rd match would probably end up with draw.

However, Australia batted first by winning the toss in the 3rd test at Ranchi and openers made at just 50 runs partnership when Warner was out. Later, Renshaw went back to the pavilion by Yadav who scored 44 runs. Renshaw is the rising talent in Australia national team and has a great future ahead. Later, Captain Smith took the steer of the match and made a long lasting partnership with Maxwell. Both of them got century where Smith remained unbeaten with his 178 runs innings.

Maxwell did not get call for the first two matches against India but in 3rd match, he proved as an worthy player it seems. He scored 104 runs in first innings so far. So, finally, Australia lost their all wickets by scoring 451 runs. Jadeja took highest five wickets where Yadav took three wickets in the first innings for India.
