The fourth Test between India and Australia in the ongoing Border Gavaskar Trophy has had a good day so far with Australia managing to break 200 runs on the board thanks to a big bang from Usman Khawaja. Rohit Sharma lost the toss early in the day and was asked to bowl.
Travis Head and Usman Khawaja gave Australia a good start before Ravichandran Ashwin broke the partnership. Rohit Sharma then gave the ball to Mohammed Shami who gave India another wicket while he cleaned up Marnus Labuschagne.

However, Australia once again managed to harness the innings thanks to a 79-run partnership between Khawaja and Steve Smith. An interesting moment occurred during the drinking break when Ishan Kishan almost avoided being punched by the patron Rohit Sharma, in a mocking manner.

During the drinking break, Ishan Kishan came down with bottles in hand and passed one to Rohit Sharma, as the player returned to the bench. Rohit Sharma passed him the bottle, but Kishan dropped the bottle, which instinctively made Rohit try to hit the player from behind.
Kishan was quick though as he picked up the bottle and ran off, Ravindra Jadeja, who was standing next to Rohit Sharma, laughing at the players’ expense before the two discussed strategy during the break.
At the time of writing Australia have managed to put 194 runs on the board in 75 overs with the loss of 4 wickets with Usman Khawaja unbeaten and batting for 80 alongside Cameron Green who is currently batting with 10 runs to his name.
