9.50am local time / 4.20am IST: What target will Australia set for India?
A 197 run lead and eight points in the hand. And who is on strike? Steven Smith (29 *) and Marnus Labuschagne (47 *). Australia is at the top here in good conditions to beat, India with an infinite attack that is now without Ravindra Jadeja due to the injury he suffered yesterday in his left thumb while hitting. The stadium is a bit up and down due to some points, which is the only thing India hopes will work for them. Otherwise, the Australians are ready to further extend their lead over the ball that is over 29 years old here.
