Australia edged out India in the third ongoing Border Gavaskar Trophy (BGT) Test at the Holkar Stadium in Indore on Wednesday 1 March.

The visitors defeated the hosts with just 109 runs, with Virat Kohli being the top scorer with 22 runs. Left-arm spinner Matthew Kuhnemann upset the Indian batsmen on a spin-friendly track and collected his first five-wicket haul in the longer format. Veteran spinner Nathan Lyon picked up three wickets, while Todd Murphy took a wicket.

Usman Khawaja said he respected good ball and tried to score when the pitcher threw a loose ball. Khawaja said it was a difficult time to bat after Travis Head’s early wicket and that it was a good partnership with Marnus Labuschagne.

“I’m not sure to be honest (which I did differently). i ran my plans, tried to score when Yo he saw a goal opportunity and respected the good ball. It’s not rocket science It was good partnering with Marnus, I felt the beginning was the hardest time to hit with the new ball being inconsistent but it was nice to get the association. It’s not easy terrain out there.”

It’s hard to say (if the tone changed), is It turned in the morning and it turned in the evening, is a spin friendly wicket. We’ll know more tomorrow, but I don’t expect it to get better. Yo length sweep most of the time, the line sometimes when the spinner goes down the leg and Yo used the sweep more intermittently. I did the same thing last week too and it’s nice to have in your arsenal. He The plan has not changed but has been dictated by the pitch and the way the players bowl. you.”
