India force rare Australia follow-on in Sydney Test

India force rare Australia follow-on in Sydney Test

India, having failed to win a Test series in Australia in 11 previous attempts, ended a slump that dates back to when they were crushed by Don Bradman's side in 1948.

Australia were then forced to follow on for the first time in Test cricket since 2005 when England had enforced the same in Nottingham.

Selectors will on Wednesday name a squad for the first Test against Sri Lanka, starting in Brisbane on January 24.

Considering the poor weather conditions and India's huge lead, Kohli did not hesitate in asking the hosts to bat again and by doing so, Kohli became only the second India captain after Kapil Dev to enforce the follow-on in Australia and coincidently, both the instances have come at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).

After the start of play was delayed by nearly four hours, the hosts were bowled out for 300 before tea, trailing India by 322 runs in the first innings.

Rain has delayed the start of play on day five of the fourth Test, washing out the entire morning session. Pacer Mohammed Shami also grabbed a couple of wickets while Jasprit Bumrah managed a wicket as well in the first innings.

Following the Warriors game, Daryl Morey added that "you can argue for [Harden] as the best offensive player of all time". Asked if he felt too much energy was spent on critiquing that aspect of his play, Harden said: "Exactly".

Lovren: Liverpool need luck against Man City
"I feel Liverpool will maintain their seven-point lead over City in the title-race by picking up a vital point at the Etihad". So, a City side going for broke against a Liverpool team looking to hit on the break means something has to give.

As he spoke, supporters began to chant "Myth!" "Our flag will never be red", Bolsonaro said , a reference to communism. Mr Bolsonaro then read a short speech that included numerous far-right positions he staked out during the campaign.

Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc (29 not out) then added 42 runs for the 10th wicket as Australia reached 300 despite another pitiful batting display.

With 98 overs to be bowled in tomorrow's day play and if weather holds up, the Indian bowlers would be looking to finish the series on a high and help India create history by winning the series 3-1.

Kuldeep Yadav picked his 2nd five wicket haul in test matches by picking the wicket of Josh Hazlewood for 21 runs.

Kuldeep claimed three wickets and Jadeja two as Australia collapsed from 122-1 at lunch to 198-6 shortly after tea in a pattern all too familiar for an Australian batting order yet to score a century this series.
