Australia 83/4 at lunch on Day 5, trail by 69 runs

20 March 2017, 01:55 | Melvin Schneider

Tempers flared again in the ongoing battle between fierce rivals India and Australia with pacer Ishant Sharma and young opener Matt Renshaw getting involved in a heated exchange on day five of the third Test here.

Peter Handscomb faced 200 balls on the final day.

Shaun Marsh and Peter Handscomb showed remarkable application and grit to keep India at bay throughout the post lunch session, taking Australia to 149 for 4 on the final day.

The pair shared a 199-run stand as the touring attack failed to take a wicket in either the morning or afternoon sessions.

Smith, who began his innings at the start of play, knew his side had to bat deep into the final session of the match to ensure the series remained level at 1-1 ahead of the Dharamsala decider starting on Saturday. His innings drew applause even from the Indian captain Virat Kohli.

Steve Smith's unbeaten 178 and a maiden Test century for Glenn Maxwell boosted Australia to a competitive total but India responded well in Ranchi.

It will also be windy with gusts of around 30 miles per hour inland and 40 miles per hour at the south coast. A slight chance of showers and thunderstorms between 8 p.m. and 2 a.m., then a chance of showers after 2 a.m.

Ravindra Jadeja (2-6) bowled David Warner (14) in the sixth over with a delivery that turned in sharply after hitting the rough outside the left-hander's off-stump. It was also his second double hundred against Australia, after 204 runs at Hyderabad in 2013.

Smith, who deployed a Pujara-like tactic through his innings in Austalia's second innings here in this Test, missed one from Jadeja, as the ball went pass his left pad and castled his off-stick.

The International Cricket Council took no action against Smith but the two countries' boards nevertheless felt the need to meet to resolve the issue.

"I'm proud of how the boys were able to stick it out today", he said.

Australia earlier handed paceman Pat Cummins a second Test cap, more than five years after his first, in place of the injured Mitchell Starc while India replaced out-of-form opening batsman Abhinav Mukund with Murali Vijay.
