Watch: Pat Cummins’ Brilliant Trap To Dismiss Virat Kohli
Australia have revived their slim hopes of saving this ongoing third Test against Australia with a stunning start with the ball in the second innings. The momentum was firmly in India’s favour when Hanuma Vihari and Mayank Agarwal came out to bat in the second essay. Riding on Jasprit Bumrah’s magnificent 6-wicket haul, India had bowled the hosts out for a paltry 151 to take a huge 292-run lead.
Australia had started the proceedings on day three on 8 for no loss in reply to India’s massive first innings total of 443 for 7 (declared). But unlike the last Test, Marcus Harris and Aaron Finch failed to give the hosts a good start this time. The duo could add just 16 runs to the overnight score before Ishant Sharma accounted for Finch. 12 runs later, Bumrah opened his account when he made Harris hit a short delivery straight to Ishant at fine-leg.
The hosts kept on losing wickets at regular intervals and were eventually folded up for just 151.
But Australia came out all guns blazing with the ball to claw their way back in the game. Vihari and Agarwal looked good early on but could add only 28 runs before the former was sent back by Pat Cummins. And even before India could add one more run to the 28-run opening stand, they lost Cheteshwar Pujara and most importantly Virat Kohli. Both the batsmen fell for duck with Cummins accounting for both of them.
Cummins had set the trap for the India superstar by stationing several fielders in catching positions on the leg side. And surprisingly, Kohli, the world number one batsman in Tests, fell for the trap, flicking one straight to the fielder at the short square leg.
