Gritty Cummins makes India wait for victory

Australia 151 and 8 for 258 (Cummins 61*, Jadeja 3-82, Bumrah 2-53) need 141 more to beat India 7 for 443 dec. and 8 for 106 dec. (Agarwal 42, Cummins 6-27)

For the fourth day in a row, Pat Cummins stood as the only considerable obstacle in India’s push for a 2-1 lead before the Sydney Test. Australia showed more fight in their second innings, but India’s bowling was too much to handle. No team has chased more than 332 at the MCG, and in the absence of any of the forecast rain, the 399 India set was too steep for Australia to do more than delay what still looks a grim defeat. They need 141 to win as India look to take an unassailable lead and retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
