The 4th match of the four-match Test series between India and Australia is being played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The match witnessed nothing but a lot of runs from both teams. Batting first, the Australian team scored 480 runs while the Indian batters also took advantage of the flat surface and ended the third day of the match on the score of 289 runs after losing 3 wickets.
Meanwhile, during India’s innings, Australian captain Steve Smith was seen checking the former Indian skipper Virat Kohli’s bat in the 3rd session.

Brilliant batting performance by Shubman Gill
Talking about the match, Australia opted to bat first after winning the toss and it proved a great decision as they scored 480 runs in the first innings. The left-handed opener Usman Khawaja was the highest scorer from the Australian team as he scored 180 runs off 444 deliveries, which included 21 fours. He was well supported by the star all-rounder Cameron Green, who also smashed a hundred and scored 114 runs off 170 deliveries which included 18 fours.
The Indian bowlers had to toil more in the end as the Australian tailenders also contributed some crucial runs to the scoreboard. R Ashwin was the highest wicket-taker for India as he picked up 6 wickets. While coming to bat, Indian openers Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill started brilliantly and both looked solid as well on the pitch.
But Rohit was dismissed after a great start on the score of 35 runs. Cheteshwar Pujara joined Gill and both stitched a magnificent 113-run stand for the 2nd wicket. Gill also smashed his 2nd Test century and departed after playing an outstanding knock of 128 runs, while smashing 12 fours and a six.
