Australia vs India 2018: Rohit Suggested Me to Bowl the Slower One to Shaun Marsh – Jasprit Bumrah
Day three of the Melbourne Test was all about Jasprit Bumrah. The India fast bowler bagged six wickets for 33 runs in the first innings to put Australia on the backfoot. Meanwhile, it was the wicket of Shaun Marsh which created quite a stir. Later, in the post-day conference, Bumrah revealed it was Rohit Sharma, who asked him to bowl a slower one, as nothing else was working.
Rohit’s suggestion worked – Bumrah
Just ahead of lunch on day three, Jasprit Bumrah fooled Marsh with a slower yorker which caught him plumb. As he doesn’t change his action while delivering the slower one, Bumrah was able to get the better off Marsh. The fast bowler though gave the credits to the batsman, Rohit Sharma for suggesting the change.

India stays on top despite Cummins’ show
Earlier on day three of the Boxing Day Test, Australia lost Aaron Finch and his partner, Marcus Harris. Later, the bowling attack led by Jasprit Bumrah rattled Aussies on a mere 151 before stumps. Ravindra Jadeja took two wickets, while Ishant and Shami bagged a piece.
In due course, Bumrah broke a few records. He, firstly, became India’s most successful bowler in the debut year in Tests, as he bagged 45 wickets so far, most any by any Indian. Also, Bumrah became the only Asian bowler to have picked a five-for in South Africa, England and Australia in Tests in a calendar year. Meanwhile, going further, these numbers would only get better.
Moreover, Australia was trailing behind by 292 runs, as India decided not to enforce the follow-on. While batting in the second innings, it was Pat Cummins who ran through India’s top-order. With the wickets of Vihari, Pujara, Kohli and Rahane, Pat helped Australia jolted India’s confidence heading into the last two days of the Test. However, at stumps, India was 54 for five, leading by 346 runs.
