I’m not going to say “I told you” about the rain, but it’s back and it’s a “fairly steady drizzle again,” says Gnasher from the ground. I forgot to mention that Claire Polosak, the first Referee in a test match for men, today the fourth referee.She was on the field with her umbrella and the other officials a while ago

Rain was predicted and here it is! It is mostly the field of play where the referees stand under the umbrellas after the players walk off the field Andrew McGlashan off the ground: “There are a number of showers from the south Today was the day with the highest chance of disruptions The forecast for the next four days is good “Twelve minutes after starting the player, the rain has stopped and the blanket is coming off

It will be interesting to see if this gives a momentum once the game resumes. Meanwhile, there has been a lot of discussion on social media about Mayank Agarwal’s expulsion, was it fair to leave him out? Vote in the following poll:

A very intriguing 18-minute layover for Warner, running those fast paced singles with visible discomfort in his groin, eager to turn the stroke, and falling after flashing away from Siraj twice in a row over the second ball of the fourth he went after one who was moving away from the outside, and when Siraj tossed it further away and a slightly fuller next ball, Warner did not move his feet enough to get closer to the ball as he chased it and edged to slip for the first time while Pucovski walks far out, while walking a little over the stumps, and got a bouncer from Bumrah the first time around, there is no momentum at all in this square, although it rained a little in the run-up to the test and more is expected today and tomorrow in Australia 18 for 1 after the first half hour “Looks like a very good punch track,” says Glenn McGrath in the TV commentary

Massive massive wicket to begin with which seems like a really good club face Siraj Bowling like a bowler who has been playing test cricket for years! Warner away! #AUSvIND

Boy, will Australia be thrilled with Warner’s return? He’s still not 100% fit after his groin injury, but given the nature of this streak and the fact that everything is at stake, Australia has decided to play him, along with a debut Tim Paine said at the throw, Warners ” high energy “will boost their” self-confidence ” Not to forget, Australia has had its slowest home streak of the century to date, just before the 2018-19 series, which also didn’t include Warner.Pucovski, on the other hand, has been in the test setup for almost a year, has a history of concussion injuries and has gone paves the way to Test XI with numerous runs in domestic cricket. Here is more about Pucovski’s previous journey

After Cameron Green in Adelaide, Shubman Gill and Mohammed Siraj in the MCG, we expect two more debutants: Will Pucovski and Navdeep Saini Pucovski received the cap from Andrew McDonald and Saini from Jasprit Bumrah Australia has chosen a bat, with David Warner moves to middle order instead of Travis Head and Matthew Wade For India, we already knew yesterday that Rohit Sharma would give the ax with Mayank Agarwal and that Saini is making his debut because Umesh Yadav flew home

In terms of fast bowlers, the Indian battery of pace features Jasprit Bumrah, Siraj and Saini with a combined testing experience of 17 versus Australia’s 144, thanks to Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins that’s one thing Australia is excited about becomes that they haven’t had to change their attack since the first test

Cricket Australia will seek clarification from the BCCI after further suggestions surfaced that India would not go to Brisbane for the final test but will continue to insist that they have not been made aware of concerns, and a report on Thursday morning said that the BCCI had officially written to CA to say they did not want to go to Brisbane, however, ESPNcricinfo believes the updated plans for the gabba test following the Covid-19 outbreak in Sydney, which led to border restrictions for Queensland led, on 29 December was approved by the BCCI officials and no objections have been received since

CA has largely dealt with BCCI Secretary Jay Shah and is expected to have further discussions on Thursday

Players are not restricted to their rooms in the team hotels in Sydney and Brisbane which are fully booked by Cricket Australia and can chat in common areas, the only difference is that the restrictions in Sydney are CA- Protocols acts while the Brisbane restrictions are set by the Queensland government as the conditions for granting exemptions

Hello everyone and welcome to the third test in this exciting series, Level 1-1 Another test, possibly another series of debuts (there is at least one confirmed from India), another close race for WTC points and the ICC ranking (New Zealand is now at the top), another debate about the selection, another discussion about who will go open and much more I’ll steal Tim Paine’s words and just say that “tension boils beneath the surface.” begins “
