Tyagi plumbed Mackenzie Harvey in front of the wickets but the Australian captain was unlucky with the decision. However, Lachlan Hearne was bowled by a brilliant inswinging yorker by Tyagi. The right-arm pacer struck once again to sent back Olivier Davies to leave Australia tottering at 17-3.

The Australian opener Sam Fanning was able to hold one end as he scored 75 runs and added 81 runs with Liam Scott, the concussion substitute all-rounder. However, they could not get Australia all the way as Tyagi took four wickets whereas Akash Sing took three scalps.

India was in a spot of bother.
