Australian team is fighting hard to make every possible effort to save the third Test against India at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). Australia are seven down chasing 399 runs in the fourth innings.
Earlier at the tea break, Travis Head (29 batting) and skipper Tim Paine (1 batting) went back undefeated with the hosts still needing 261 runs. Resuming the second session at 44/2, the Aussie duo of Usman Khawaja (33) and Shaun Marsh (44) dragged the third-wicket stand to 30 runs before pacer Mohammed Shami struck by trapping Khawaja in front of the wicket.
Fellow pacer Jasprit Bumrah sprang into action once again and this time he managed to end the stiff resistance from Shaun, who looked positive during the 51-run fourth-wicket stand with Head.
With already four wickets down for 114, and the off-colour Mitchell Marsh (10) joining Head in the middle, India could sense another wicket coming their way, prompting skipper Virat Kohli to bring back the left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja.
