It was a kind of an even day for both India and Australia when considering the 4 th day performances.
But surely India is on top by far with Aussies requiring 141 runs to win by only having 2 wickets in hand,
What went wrong for Australia was their poor show in 1 st inning.If not for that it was a game well balanced for both teams.
Earlier in the day India decided to declare their inning at 106 for 8 with an lead of 398.
In reply Australian top order could not show much of a fight as they were 135 for 5 wickets at one stage.
But their tail enders showed a very good fight as they usually do to end the day at a respectable position of 258 for 8 wickets.
Pat Cummins was the real hero behind it as he was unbeaten at the end of day on 61.
Nathan Lyon also did extremely well to stay unbeaten at the end of the day on 6 runs by facing 38 balls.
Upto now Ravindra Jadeja is the highest wicket taker for India as he has taken 3 wickets for 82 runs.
Bumrah and Shami took 2 wickets each.
