4th Test: Australia out for 300; India enforce follow-on

Adjust Comment Print

Handscomb was a somewhat surprise selection for the Sydney Test after getting dropped for Boxing Day.

Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting has lashed out at the hosts' mindset after Nathan Lyon failed to review his lbw decision off Kuldeep Yadav during day four of the fourth and final Test at the SCG despite the hosts having two challenges remaining.

Marcus Harris lifts his bat above his head as a teammate walks towards him.

Play is scheduled to start 30 minutes early, at 7am Perth time, due to the lost time on day three and four.

Resuming the day at 236/6, Australia's lower-order failed. Replays suggested the ball would have probably struck Lyon outside the line of off stump and he may have been adjudged not out if DRS was taken.

"I'd been playing positively against the spinners and got out with a half-arsed shot so probably a bit disappointed with myself more than anything".

Of course, this result won't affect the series result, because India already lead 1-2.

Peter Handscomb was 28 not out and Pat Cummins was on 25, with Australia still needing another 287 runs to avoid the prospect of the follow-on after India posted 622-7 declared in their first innings. "We are still learning and hopefully we can improve further".

Kuldeep (3-71) - who had Usman Khawaja (27) caught in the 22nd over - then caught and bowled Travis Head for 20 on the cusp of tea and then bowled Tim Paine (5) in the first over after the interval.

The 21-year-old, in his ninth Test, hit...

".I knew he was going to come at me so I was very lucky that wrong one landed perfectly", Kuldeep said.

The surface that India's batsmen had feasted on for two days was still offering little for the bowlers and the hosts will be cursing themselves for some soft dismissals after a 72-run opening stand.
