On the fourth day of the SCG Test, Australia started from their overnight score of 236/6, with two batsmen Cummins and Handscomb unbeaten at 25 and 28 respectively.
Soon Indian bowlers mainly Kuldeep with fifer bundled up kangaroos for a score of 300. That was still less than the follow-on score of 423 and hereby Indian captain Virat Kohli enforced the follow-on. The Last time Australia was given follow-on was 30 years ago vs England in 1988. Outside Australia, they were forced to follow-on in 2005 which is also huge 13 years.
Coming on the decision taken by Virat, he might not have done that if rain was not been in contention. Seeing his past decisions, he is not a big fan of enforcing follow on.
Australia is 6/0 in their second innings and has to bat full day to save the match. They will be hopeful on the weather to pour some mercy in form of raindrops to them.
A total of only 25.2 overs were bowled today. One side where Aussies are hoping for the rain, Indians on the other side are on the urge of winning their 3rd test and secure the trophy.
