2 nd Test India vs Australia:3 rd day analysis

It was a even day for both teams with mixed performances by both oppositions .However at the end of the day  Australia managed to extend the lead to 175 runs in testing conditions with 6 wickets still in hand.

With another great inning from Kholi ,India were looking like getting a comfortable lead but they were only able to get a first inning score of 283,conceding a lead of 43 crucial runs to Australia.

Australian batsmen never looked like they are comfortable in the middle but how ever added on 132 runs to the board at the end of the day for 4 wickets.

As we reckon if Australia can extend the lead atleat to 300 from here they will have a good chance to win the match.

In India's point of view they should however try to breakthrough Australian middle order and get on to bat again with minimum lead.
