KS Bharat looked in his prime form after nearing to half century, but unfortunately had to be departed after Lyon’s delivery gives India a huge blow.
India loses their 5th wicket as KS Bharat’s edge handed an easy wicket to Lyon.
Lyon to Srikar Bharat, Handscomb out-catch! Standing there in shock is Bharat. A wicket was obtained by Lyon against the flow of play. Big wicket for Australia due to Bharat’s aggressive play. Bharat looked to defend with his bat in front of the pad, inside edge onto pad, and straight to short leg in a typical offie. Bharat played a solid innings.
Meanwhile Virat Kohli is just a few moments away to cheer the Ahmedabad fans for his 75th international century, having lastly smashed a Test ton in November 2019
