Australia started off with Travis Head and Usman Khawaja. Travis had a poor start for the third Test whereas Jadeja seemed to continue his dominating performance.
Usman Khawaja on the other hand survived the session blow and continued to bat with Marnus Labuschagne.
Jadeja’s crackling delivery hit the stumps, forcing Marnus to stride back to the pavilion, which called in skipper Steve Smith to assist Usman.
With less than 15 overs remaining for the day, Australia lost their star performer Usman Khawaja and once again Jadeja’s shining delivery made it possible, sending Usman Khawaja after his tough knock of 60 runs off 147 balls.
