Commentary :
130.6 : India skipper, Ajinkya Rahane says that it was all about character and is really happy with the way they played. Mentions that there are a few things which they need to look at. He says that Rishabh Pant's innings was one of a kind as he played an attacking innings. Praises the efforts of Vihari and Ashwin. Mentions that Pant is fine and injuries are something that they cannot control. On Vihari's availability for the last Test, he mentions that it will be assessed before they take a call for th
STEVEN SMITH IS NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH! He says that it was a hard-fought game. India fought hard as the bowlers kept running into them. Says that the pitch was placid and there was less uneven bounce than they expected. Mentions that a century is always special at his home ground but says that he would have loved it if they had won. Ends by saying that he just absorbed the pressure and just observed the ball and played at it.
India began the chase of 407 on a positive note as Gill and Sharma managed to stitch a 71-run stand for the first wicket. Though Gill departed Sharma got to his first Test fifty as an opener in an overseas Test but he too could not continue as he departed after getting to his milestone. Pujara and Rahane saw of the day for the visitors as they took the game into day 5. Needing 309 runs for victory on Day 5 what unfolded was a sheer cricketing action of the highest level as the game ran down the
Australia second innings was all about Marnus Labuschagne and Steven Smith as they once again added a 100-run stand as they both got to their respective fifties. Further to go by Cameron Green's maiden Test fifty and Tim Paine's 39 off 52 balls meant that Australia ended with 312 runs as they declared with a lead of 406 runs. Once again the Indian bowlers were on the receiving end as they were milked for runs. Bumrah and Siraj ended with a wicket each while Saini and Ashwin managed to get  a
India's reply in the first innings started with new opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill stitching a 70-run stand. Though Rohit departed, Gill showed his mettle as an international player as he brought his maiden Test fifty. Soon after that, he departed to hand Australia the advantage as they lost two quick wickets. Pant and Pujara steadied the ship for the visitors with a 50-run stand but once Pant departed it was a matter of time as India folded for 244 runs handing Australia a 94-run
After winning the toss and opting to bat, Australia began poorly with Warner sent packing but then came the rain and it washed out a majority of the day. Only 55 overs were possible as debutant Will Pucovski and Marnus Labuschagne saw off the day for the hosts. The debutant though ended with a score of fifty on Day 1 to hand the hosts the advantage. Further going into Day 2, Australia found contributions from Marnus Labuschagne and Steven Smith as the latter got to his 27th Test ton but the form
Day 5 started on the right note for the hosts as they sent the Indian skipper back into the hut early but little did they know of what was going to come their way. Out walked Rishabh Pant and what unleashed was as pure brutal innings from him. He took a special liking to Lyon as he carted him all over the place. His attacking innings helped India gain the momentum going into the second session of the final day. He along with Pujara not only kept the Australian attack at bay but took them out too
Going into the final session, India needed to play out 35 overs with Vihari and Ashwin unbeaten and 5 wickets in the bag for them. What unfolded was a typical old school style of batting as Vihari and Ashwin managed to keep everything out that was thrown at them. Ashwin though showed a lot of grit and determination as despite taking a lot of blows onto his body he hung around to see India home with a draw. Australia bowling their hearts out there tried everything they could or was in their hand
What a Test match we have had! Kudos to Vihari and Ashwin for hanging in there to eke out a draw as the players shake hands with just six balls remaining of the mandatory overs. Special praise for Vihari for showing grit and fight despite suffering a hamstring injury early in his innings. A brilliant 5 days of a Test match, a true entertainment. We have seen rain, run-scoring, collapse, dropped catches, fightback, resilience and what not. Australia would be the most disappointed of the two sides
That is it from this game. It was a hard fought game here in Sydney and this further creates an enviroment for the final Test. There were speculations of the final Test to be played at Sydney only after Indian team's unwillingness to travel to Brisbane. But everything is sorted out as it is confirmed that final Test will be played as per schedule at the Wollongabba in Brisbane on Friday, 15th January 2021. Join us for that at 1000 local (1200 GMT). Till then, take care and cheers!
Australia skipper, Tim Paine says that they created enough chances to go for the win. Mentions that the bowlers bowled well and the dropped catches did not do their cause. He mentions that they are back as a batting unit and the bowlers created opportunities and says that it was a whole-hearted effort from the boys. He says that the young guys coming into the team were just brilliant and they look forward to the Brisbane Test.

He appeals and the umpire raises his finger. Ashwin there immidiately signals 'T'. Replays roll it and Hot Spot does not detect a spot as Sn
95.6 : We are back for the final session of Day 5. The Australian players are out in the middle. Hanuma Vihari and Ravichandran Ashwin will resume the innings for India. Pat Cummins will start the proceedings for this session.
... Day 5, Session 3 ...
So, with 127 runs to win but lack of specialist batsmen might come to hurt India in this Test. Australia just have to do what they do the best. Take wickets and get closer to the win. What will be the final outcome after the final session of the 3rd Test? A win for Australia or a draw. Join us for the final session of this Test in a while.
India did not start well in the session as Pant just fell short of his century which could have been a match winning one but was cut shot by Lyon. Pujara got to his fifty and continued to play the new ball and just when it looked that he would be going on and on, he was castled by a peach of a delivery from Josh Hazlewood. Vihari struggling for form was dealt a blow when he pulled his hamstring while going for a run. Ashwin has so far held the fort as Jadeja's availablity with the bat is still u
Australia's session as has been the norm in this Test. What a remarkable session after being pushed on the back foot by Pant in the first session. The hosts started well after the Lunch as they got rid of the attacking Rishabh Pant just before the new ball was due. Then with the new ball they had the run scoring in check as Hazlewood delivered a peach to get rid of Pujara. Since then they have been right on the money. Lyon has found his mojo back as he kept it tight. Starc was also at his best w

... Day 5, Session 2 ... 
The Australian bowlers tried everything from short balls to fuller length balls but to no avail. The wicket of Rahane was the lone success they have had in the session. Lyon was expected to dictate terms but he was taken to the cleaners by Pant as Starc looked off colour in his short spell. Cummins and Hazlewood bowled beautifully as they beat the outside edge of both the batsmen on a number of occassions but failed to scalp either of them.

Will Pant and Pujara see India home with a win or will Australia come back stronger and sharper in the
Getting Rahane early put Australia slightly ahead in this Test on Day 5 but Rishabh Pant's attacking batting has brought back the momentum in India's favour. Australia would be ruing two dropped chances against the southpaw there off Lyon which came to haunt them later in the session.

Pitch Report - Ajay Jadeja mentions that there will be some footmarks and that should help the off spinner. Glenn McGrath mentions that it is always a tough one for pacers. There will be some variable bounce on offer and the first session is crucial once again.
Will this game end in a stalemate? Or will Australia go onto take the lead in this series? Stay tuned as the match unfolds in a short while.
Indian batsmen have task in hand on Day 5. On a wearing pitch offering turn and bounce for spin and variable bounce for the pacers. Having 8 wickets and 309 runs more to get an unlikely win, what would be India's approach?
Going into the 5th day, Australia hold all the aces. Having batted brilliantly in both the innings and then with the ball they were just brutal. Exploiting the variable bounce on offer to a good effect. They have set the tone going into the final day. Pat Cummins has lived up to his standard of being the number 1 Test bowler as Hazlewood's accuracy has been pin point. Lyon's tirelessness and Starc's fiery pace has just been too hot to handle for the opposition batsmen.
Wow finally we have a day 5 finish in this Test series. How many of us would have expected it to happen? The build up of this Test series was Steven Smith against India and it finally came to the party in this Test. Hello and welcome to Day 5 of this 3rd Test between Australia and India.
... Day 5, Session 1 ...
Right then! Day 4 ends as the game heads to Day 5. First time in this Test series. Australia need 8 wickets while India need 309 runs. Who will take the lead in the series? Or will it end in a stalemate? We will find out on 11th January 2021. The game starts at 1000 local (2300 GMT, Previous Day). Till then cheers and take care.
Earlier in the day, Australia batted for two sessions and gained a lead of 406 runs. Contributions from Marnus Labuschagne and Steven Smith where they stitched a 100-run stand and later a couple of 50-run stands between Steven Smith and Cameron Green and later Green and Paine saw Australia get to a score of ascendency. The Indian bowling looked toothless and tired as they bowled wayward lines and lengths. Saini, Siraj and Bumrah all were taken for runs as Ashwin the lone spinner in the absence o
India began the chase in the final session with needing 407 runs for a win. Initially, they began watchfully with Sharma and Gill. Slowly they started to open up as both played their shots. Soon they brought up their 50-run stand for the second time in this Test. Just when it felt that these two will go on and on. Gill departed pegging India slightly on the back foot. Sharma though continued from one end as Pujara found it difficult to negotiate the turn and bounce from Lyon. Rohit, in the end,
What a day of Test cricket we have had today. The last session seemed to be evenly shared but the day belonged to Australia. They were dominant with the bat as well as the ball. Setting a target of 407 runs for India to get an unlikely win the Australian pacers began on the money as the kept tight line and lengths. In the end, they managed to keep India in check with still 309 runs needed with 8 wickets in hand for the visitors for a victory.
Australian bowlers were just relentless and unwilling to give up. They started with Starc and Hazlewood and later Cummins and Lyon took over the mantle. Cameron Green too got to bowl after his heroics with the bat. Starc was slightly on the expensive side as Cummins and Hazlewood kept it tight. Lyon asked a lot of questions to the Indian batsmen but failed to get a wicket to his name.
