Watch India vs Australia cricket highlights today on 27-3-2017. IND vs AUS fourth Test day 3 highlights. Australia vs India day 3 of the fourth Test highlights. Nathan Lyon was star of yesterday’s proceedings after he destroyed Indian batting through his tricky use of bounce available in Dharamsala. Had Matt Renshaw not dropped two catches, Australia would have been in a more dominating position. However after scoring 248 runs with just four wickets in hand, India have lost the advantage their bowlers had given them at the first day of this final Test. Now they will have to do something exceptionally well to regain their lost position of strength.

The pitch offered more bounce to the touring bowlers than at any other time in the series, while Dharamsala’s altitude helped the ball swing more or less all day. Lyon duly adjusted his approach to seek maximum overspin, and in a long spell after tea claimed four wickets to reduce India’s chances of building a substantial lead.

It might have been even better for Australia, were it not for Renshaw at first slip failing to react in time to a KL Rahul edge while the ball was still new in the first hour, then making a mess of a more straightforward chance offered up by Wriddhiman Saha in Pat Cummins’ first over with the second new ball. Cummins’ anguished reaction underlined how hard he and Josh Hazlewood had toiled, in defence of a total that has left the game open to either side with three days remaining.

Rahul and Cheteshwar Pujara played India’s most substantial innings’, while the stand-in captain Ajinkya Rahane offered an approach of polar opposites – attacking the pacemen and offering a dead bat to the spinners. Pujara had seemed capable of emulating his Ranchi effort, but fell prey to Lyon’s bounce shortly after tea as Australia’s No. 1 offspinner found lovely rhythm to pose questions to all comers.
