Australia v India: SCG fourth Test, day three – live! | Sport

Harris to 50!

WICKET! Khawaja c Pujara b Kuldeep 27 (Australia 72-1)


Welcome to day three at the SCG!

Another smashing day in the harbour city, not a cloud to be seen. Now, there are days in the dirt and then there are days in the dirt and Australia certainly experienced one of the latter on Friday. That was quite brutal yesterday afternoon as India’s lower order got busy, Pant’s unbeaten 159 a real wonder.

Without any realistic hope of winning the Test from here, the job for the hosts is to find a way to bat for a full day; for the top order to make the most of these favourable conditions to show that some lessons were learned in Melbourne.

I’m looking forward to your company through the first session before Geoff Lemon and JP Howcroft stop by later to drive the OBO home. What do you think? Is this the day Travis Head or Marcus Harris post three figures for the first time? Does Usman Khawaja put on a clinic? Or will it all come tumbling down? Drop me a line, ping me a tweet – you know the drill. Good morning.
