India vs Australia Day 3 talking points and analysis
A star is born as Gill reaches ton
At the crease, Indian opener Shubman Gill is putting together a fantastic innings that is giving the Australians a lot to ponder. Gill has displayed remarkable patience and skill, mirroring the performances of Usman Khawaja and Cameron Green in the first two days. Despite the scorching weather, the right-handed batsman has been exceptional thus far, reaching a coveted century and securing his second hundred in his career.
Is the pitch coming to life?
The opening two days of the fourth test at Ahmedabad has ultimately produced a test-match-esque pitch, unlike what we’ve seen in previous tests.
However, on day three, it seems like it is coming to life, with Australian spinners Matthew Kuhnemann and Nathan Lyon noticing some difference.
So far, the pitch at the Narendra Modi Stadium hasn’t stacked up to the days in Indore, which boasted 4.5 degrees of turn for some bowlers.
Kuhnemann gets much needed break through
Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill had set India’s run chase on the right path with some impressive batting. However, Australia was in dire need of a wicket, and left-arm spinner Matthew Kuhnemann stepped up to the challenge. Having troubled Indian batters in the past, the visitors had high hopes for him. Unfortunately for India, just before the morning drinks break, Sharma attempted to punch the ball through the covers but instead found Marnus Labuschagne.
