London will not be big enough if this becomes a reality for Team India,’ Mathew Hayden on India’s run-chase

Marnus Labuschagne who looked solid the previous evening could not last long on the morning of Day-4. He was dismissed in the third over by Umesh Yadav.

Mathew Hayden on ICC feed: “Umesh Yadav goes fuller, just a little extra bounce off the length. Marnus put his hands very low actually. The new ball definitely has bounce but this 46 overs old ball was expected to be lower – that caused him the problem.”

The pavilion end poses a challenge to the batters

Mohammed Siraj started from the pavilion end, getting some extra bounce. One of his good-length deliveries rose sharply to ram into the shoulder of Green.

Dinesh Karthik on ICC feed: A lot of these body blows happened exactly at the end where Siraj is bowling; from the pavilion end. The majority of the Australian fast bowlers will extract as much bounce as possible from this end. We saw Shardul Thakur and Ajnikya Rahane get hit as well yesterday (Day 2).

Jadeja does a Shane Warne

Green was stitching a valuable partnership with Carey when Ravindra Jadeja did a Shane Warne. The left-arm spinner turned one from the rough outside of the leg stump to peg back Green’s middle stump.

Mathew Hayden on ICC feed: Green did not really know what to do actually. Over the years Shane Warne used to come around the wicket, dump it into the rough and turn it into the right-handers. Very few players had an option.

At Lunch: Australia 201/6

Poor coordination

Alex Carey poked at an outside-off-stump ball from Umesh which between the slip fielders Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara who ended up looking at each other. Carey and Starc added 56 runs after the incident adding insult to injury.

Sunil Gavaskar on ICC feed: It has happened innumerable times in Indian cricket. I mean Virat Kohli moved to the other side; he had to move to his right towards the ball. It was his catch because he is a right-hander. Pujara is a right-hander as well and it went to his left.

Green the gully fielder

Shubman Gill was caught by Green at gully. Whilst the catch was controversial the effort was stunning from Green for the second time in the game. In the first innings, he plucked another one of thin air to dismiss Rahane.

Ravi Shastri on ICC feed: For a tall man to come down that quickly and take it is magnificent and shows he is athletic for a big fellow huge wingspan is so much like Joel Garner, who could patrol that position for the West Indies

Former Pakistan cricketer Rashid Latif on the controversial catch tweeted: “Hello! Evidence not clear”

At Tea: India 41/1

Soft signal?

Since the soft signal has been removed this has been the first high-profile decision in an ICC event which had to be made.

Harsha Bhogle on ICC feed: We used to have soft signals before. A lot of people did not like soft signals; still think in the areas close to the bat, the umpire can see what makes sense but you cannot have a soft signal for something that is far away (Green catch). If you are going to go to the technology every time it will always look not out; a lot of umpires in India give that not out. A lot of overseas umpires give it out because of the fingers underneath. We are getting into dangerous territory if we are leaving it to a 2-d picture to judge a 3-d event.

Kohli’s flick shot

India were on the backfoot after the wickets of Rohit Sharma and Pujara in quick succession. However, Kohli, looking in magnificent touch, dragged India along with a solid Rahane. Kohli sumptuously flicked a ball to the boundary to bring up the 50-run partnership.

Dinesh Karthik on ICC feed: Kohli’s strengths have been quite a few. For the moment flick shot is what he used in the innings. It is a lovely sight to watch from 22 yards away or 200 yards away. Full ball on the leg stump, forget it. Goes to the boundary in a flash.
