The third match of the four-match Test series between India and Australia is currently being played in Indore. The Indian team opted to bat first after winning the toss. However, their innings was restricted to 109 runs. Australia lost their 4 wickets by the end of the day's play but took the lead of 47 runs while scoring 156 runs. Meanwhile, a video is going viral, in which the part-time commentator Dinesh Karthik predicted Umesh Yadav’s next move.

On the first day of the third Test match of the series, the experienced wicketkeeper-batter surprised everyone by making accurate predictions. Impressed by this prediction of him, his co-commentator termed him a 'Nostradamus'. The video is getting viral on social media and was shared by Karthik himself from his official account. Interestingly, Nostradamus was a famous prophet of France who made many predictions about the world, many of which also proved to be true.

Watch the video here:

Nathan Lyon came for the 30th over of the innings. Karthik was in the commentary box and he predicted before the last ball of the over that Umesh would hit it for a six or get out. The tailender smashed the ball for a six while playing over the mid-wicket. "I think he's going to go for a six. It's either six or out," Karthik told his fellow commentator.

Brilliant bowling performance by Australia

The Indian batting flopped on the first day as Team India could only score 109 runs in 33.2 overs. Apart from former skipper Virat Kohli and Shubman Gill, no Indian batter could even cross the 20-run mark. In the lower order, Umesh Yadav played a short but entertaining inning, due to which the Indian team was able to cross the 100-run mark. Umesh scored 17 runs off 13 balls which included 2 brilliant sixes and a four.

The Australian team will look to extend their lead in order to clinch a win in the series as the Indian team is leading the series by 2-0. Meanwhile, the Men in Blue need just one to seal their spot in the World Test Championship final for the second time in June.
