India vs Australia 3rd test: Day 3 final scores, highlights, analysis and talking points

Australia won the third test at Indore by completing 76 runs on the third day.

After two dramatic and entertaining opening days, visitors were left with the task of chasing down a meager sum and plenty of time to do so.

Matthew Kuhnemann’s five-for in the first innings and Nathan Lyon’s eight-wicket haul (second innings) contributed to the win.

India was knocked out of the tournament with 109 runs followed by 163.

Usman Khawaja’s 60 balls from 147 helped set the 197 total in the first innings, making it an easy task for Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne.

Head finished 49 (not out) innings as the Aussies won their first Test of the series very easily.

The fourth test begins March 9-13 in Ahmedabad.

Ashwin conquered Australia batsman Usman Khawaja with the second ball of the day and cast some doubt on the visitors’ lineup.

Despite the weak pursuit, the spinner legend causes chaos out on the pitch, spinning the ball in tons and confusing Marnus Labuschagne.

Ashwin opted for a two-pronged approach before Labuschagne questioned the change.

The Indian bowler was then forced to return to his original lineup.
