Aus vs Ind – 3rd Test – SCG

Aus vs Ind - 3rd Test - SCG


Smith, Labuschagne and Pucovski scored a bunch of runs between them, but still Australia ended short of where they would have wanted to be

It looked like the performance that could move the talk on from the batting ills Australia suffered in the first two Tests. However, despite three substantial innings in the top four, including a masterly century from Steven Smith, it did not quite work out that way in the third Test against India at the SCG.

When Smith – having responded to three single-figure dismissals with his 27th Test hundred, which he celebrated with much gusto – was brilliantly run-out by Ravindra Jadeja, it meant Australia had lost eight wickets for 132 runs; 206 for 2 to a rather underwhelming 338 all out. There is a lot to unfold yet in this game – India did well to reach the close two down on a surface that could play tricks – but they missed a chance to be far more impregnable.

“I think it’s a decent total,” Smith said after the second day’s play. “It would have been nice to score a few more – you always want more. It’s a bit up and down, the wicket, we’ve seen a couple of balls have kicked up off a length, a couple shot low.”
