India vs Australia Day 4 talking points and analysis

Kohli’s first century in three years

Virat Kolhi’s century against Australia was a long-time coming, with the Indian batter forced to wait 1205 days for the milestone.

Kolhi’s last ton was back in 2019 against Bangladesh as the champion was finally able to lift the weight off his shoulders.

Green’s over from hell

Cameron Green’s 16th over was one from hell, with the Aussie all-rounder going for 21 runs, the most of the series between the two countries.

The Australian’s set a field to Virat Kohli and Srikar Bharat that welcomed short balls to the batters, of which the Indians took full advantage.

Despite a strong start to the over, Green was tonked for back-to-back sixes by Bharat and was followed by a fine shot for four.

However, the sirens went off, indicating the 23-year-old had stepped over the crease, signalling a no-ball.

Green backed up this effort with yet another extra (no-ball).

Already at 19 runs, the Indians rotated strike for the remaining two balls of the over and producing the most expensive set for the series.

Stand-in captain Steve Smith then replaced Green with spinner Todd Murphy as the Aussies were desperate to find a wicket.

Murphy breaks Kolhi-Jadeja partnership as Aussies get a sniff

Young Aussie spinner Todd Murphy got the much needed breakthrough of Ravindra Jadeja.

The partnership between Jadeja and Virat Kohli was worth 64 runs but lasted nearly 30 overs.

The dismissal of Jadeja can be a fire starter for the visitors, who are hopeful of turning the opening wicket of day four into plenty more.
