WATCH: Pat Cummins bowls a vicious bouncer to dismiss Hanuma Vihari

The crucial third test match between India and Australia at the MCG in Melbourne on one of the most anticipated dates in the year, the Boxing Day. Indian skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat first on a seemingly lifeless pitch at the MCG. The decision so far has paid rich dividends with the visitors managing to see off the morning session with the loss of a soltary wicket, that of makeshift opener Hanuma Vihari.

Earlier in the day, India decided to drop both their openers KL Rahul and Murali Vijay who have looked completely out of sorts in the test series so far. Mayank Agarwal, who was handed India’s 295th test cap at the start of the day’s play has been quite impressive managing to rack up an unbeaten 34 before going into the lunch break. The duo of Mayank and Vihari saw off the new ball challenge thrown to them, not giving away their wickets cheaply to the Australian bowlers.




Vihari, however, failed to make it to the post lunch session after having done all the hard work in the morning session. The right hander was undone by a nasty bouncer from Pat Cummins in the 19th over of the Indian innings. Cummins who had earlier hit Vihari on the helmet in the 2nd over of his spell, got one to skid on from back of length, catching Vihari completely off guard. The ball took the glove and looped up in the air into the safe hands of Aaron Finch at second slip.

While the wicket of victory would have certainly given Australian team a lot of hope, Vihari would feel that he had done half the job in playing out the brand new Kookaburra in the first session of the day, which was always going to have something in it for the seamers.
