The boxing day Test at the MCG has been more about the nature of the pitch than anything. So far, a few questions got raised over the uneven bounce it has offered. Plus, former Aussie legend, Ian Chappell has called the track at the ‘G’ as the weirdest he has seen. Meanwhile, Ajinkya Rahane would answer it better, as he was got out off Nathan Lyon’s low-bounce delivery.

Keeping his wicket intact at one hand, Ajinkya Rahane looked comfortable out there. Although the run flow was not at its best, the pair of Rahane and Rohit was helping the scoreboard ticking. Bowling at the other end Nathan Lyon, who picked 16 wickets in two Tests didn’t get one at the MCG. Trying his luck hard, Lyon was successful in keeping it tight for the batsmen.

Getting a reward for his perseverance, Lyon trapped Rahane in front of the wicket on 34. For the second time in the day, a low-bounce delivery had helped Australia get the breakthrough. Initially, it was Cheteshwar Pujara, who got bowled off Pat Cummins.

Coming to Rahane’s wicket, the ball didn’t bounce and hit him straight. Also, the umpire didn’t take much longer before raising his finger.

As mentioned above, India’s ship in the third Test has been sailing smoothly so far. At stumps on day one, they lost just two wickets and managed 215 runs. Also, during the first session on day two, the India National Cricket Team didn’t lose a single wicket. Meanwhile, Cheteshwar Pujara slammed his 17th Test hundred, and his first at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground.

However, the India captain, Virat Kohli missed out his second three-digit mark on the Test tour Down Under; as he got on 82 off Mitchell Starc.
