IND vs AUS Live: Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill during Day 5 of the 4th Test.© AFP
Australia have registered an early crucial wicket against India, on Day 5 of the ongoing fourth and final Test match, at The Gabba in Brisbane. The hosts have registered the crucial wicket of Rohit Sharma, with Pat Cummins dismissing him. The responsibility now lies on Cheteshwar Pujara and Shubman Gill, who are currently unbeaten. The equation is simple. Australia, playing at their seemingly impenetrable fortress, have to take nine wickets now. India need to score over 300 runs. With the series tied at 1-1, a draw will see honours shared and the visitors retain the Border-Gavaskar trophy. A depleted Indian bowling attack bundled Australia out for 294 on Day 4, with Mohammed Siraj taking his maiden five-wicket haul, setting India a 328-run target. With a deteriorating pitch, a result seems likely on the card, but there is a chance of rain in Brisbane, which may see the match drawn. With the game finely balanced and all three results possible, a thrilling end to a dramatic series is on the cards at the Gabba. (LIVE SCORECARD)
