India take fast lane to be step away from history

Bumrah's six-wicket haul puts India in control despite Cummins heroics

After declaring for 443, it was always going to be a tough ask for Australia, whose batting fragility has shone through amply through the three Tests, and a deteriorating pitch wasn't doing the hosts any favours.

Cummins, who pushed the third Test into a fifth day with his career-best knock but was dismissed for 63 on Sunday, declared Australia were desperate to avoid an ignominious series loss.

In the fourth innings, India once again struck early and all the bowlers got into the act to set up a memorable victory.

After being hammered by the Aussies in the Perth Test, Virat Kohli & Co. displayed exemplary grit and determination to come out tops in the all important Boxing Day Test.

In fact, Kohli would have been anxious when rain did not allow a single delivery to be bowled in the first session of the fifth day.

"If you want to win a series away from home, it has to be an obsession, so hats off to the whole team for sticking together, believing in themselves and being obsessed about getting results". "We're not scoring a lot of runs but I don't think India are [either] and part of the reason for that is both attacks are really good as well".

India´s captain Virat Kohli (R) shakes hands with Australia´s Nathan Lyon on the final day of the third cricket Test match between Australia and India in Melbourne on December 30, 2018. We train very hard and we are used to bowling a lot of overs in Ranji Cricket, so the body is doing well. "India's bowling attack is probably as good as most of us have ever played". The three fast bowlers have broken the record for most wickets by pacers in a calendar year for a team, which is brilliant. "But I think it's pretty common you see that when you've got inexperienced players in your top 6 against high-quality bowling".

Hussey, who played alongside Wade for Victoria and in the Australian one-day team, added that the left-hander shared numerous traits of coach Justin Langer.

Mitch Marsh smacked Jadeja for a six but gave Kohli more catching practice in the covers.

"We really focus on what we can do".

Spearheaded by the 25-year-old Bumrah, who reinforced his reputation as one of the world's top bowlers, Australia were then skittled for just 151. "We've got the best group of players available to us at the moment and we'll pick the best combination out of that group that we think will win this last Test".

"In this game, no doubt we were a little bit disappointing".

Australia have already named a 13-man squad for the SCG Test, which would suggest Peter Handscomb is the only player in the mix for a call-up for the series finale, but selectors may yet opt for reinforcements.
