Virat Kohli Stars as India Keep Australia Under Pressure
Australia were 3 without loss at stumps on Day 4 of the ongoing fourth and final Test. Travis Head and Matthew Kuhnemann will resume at their respective scores of 3 and 0 on Monday. The guests still trail India by 88 runs.
Earlier, Virat Kohli scored 186 as India posted 571 runs, taking a first-innings lead of 91 runs against Australia. Resuming at 289 for 3 on Sunday, India rode on Kohli marathon knock and Axar Patel’s 79. Nathan Lyon and Todd Murphy picked three wickets apiece, while Matthew Kuhnemann and Mitchell Starc scalped one each.
The duo of R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja have managed to trouble Matthew Kuhnemann, but the best thing for Australia so far is that they are still unscatched.
Virat Kohli missed out on his eighth double century in Test cricket as he was dismissed on 186 by Todd Murphy against Australia. The star batsman looked in mighty touch but his innings finally came to an end as he was caught in the deep by Marnus Labuschagne. With wickets falling on the other end, Kohli looked to accelerate the innings and a miscue off Murphy spelled the end of a near-perfect innings. It was a special innings for the former India skipper who last scored a century in 2019 and his last fifty also came around 14 months back.
