The second Test between India and Australia (IND vs AUS Boxing Day Test) is being played at MCG in Melbourne. Ajinkya Rahane led Indian Team will be the happier of the two sides at the end of the play on the third day as the visitors dealing with the conditions reasonably well here in the Melbourne Test. At stumps on Day 3, the Australian cricket team is leading India by 2 runs, with a score of 133/6. Pat Cummins remains unbeaten on 15* while Cameron Green is on the crease after making 17* at the Stumps.
No doubt that Indian skipper Ajinkya Rahane leads from the front especially when Team India was bundled out for their lowest-ever score of 36-all-out in the second innings of the Adelaide Test and eventually lost the match by 8 wickets. Indian bowlers rattled the Aussie top-order badly. Mathew Wade and Labushgne have shown some fight in the middle.
Wade scored a well-made 40 while Labushgne looked positive in his short stay. Steve Smith's horror run continues against India with the bat as he made just 0 and 8 in both innings.
