Team India celebrate their Test win over Australia

Slamming both the cricketers for their sexist and misogynistic views on a TV show hosted by filmmaker Karan Johar, Virat Kohli said that they are waiting for the decision of the Board for Control of Cricket in Indian (BCCI) on Pandya and Rahul.

Marsh, who has been the team's form one-day player in the last eight months, played the sort of the innings Australia would have liked to see more of in the Test series although pinned his ears back to bring up fifty from 65 deliveries with a rasping cut. In this interim, Rayudu scored 392 runs in 11 ODIs in the Asia Cup and against West Indies at average 56 including a hundred and three half-centuries.

The ball before, Australia had wasted its review on an LBW shout against Sharma - the replays showed the delivery from the Western Australian paceman was pitched outside leg and travelling high.

He and Handscomb began to put the foot down with a string of fours, but Marsh came unstuck in the 38th over when he tried to loft Kuldeep down the ground and holed out to Mohammed Shami at long-on for 54.

Kohli suggested on Friday that the saga, which erupted while Rahul was playing the fourth Test and Pandya was part of that squad, was unfortunate but had not taken any shine off his team's maiden Test series win in Australia.

Their 50-run stand came off only 49 balls as Australia started to show a little more urgency.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang said a one-day extension in talks showed both sides are serious about the negotiations. No details were immediately announced, but Asian stock markets rose after talks planned for two days were extended to three.

SonyLiv will stream the game live via the app and the website for the viewers in the Indian subcontinent. But there were no sizeable contributions from the middle order.

Kohli also stated that, in Pandya's absence, Ravindra Jadeja would need to step up as the all-rounder.

Wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav could trouble the Aussie batsmen. Yuzvendra Chahal will miss out in that scenario.

Finch said his side's target will be to dismiss India's top-three batsmen - Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli - cheaply.

"We have to look at the pitch".

Yousuf said he had no doubt that if Pakistan went to Australia now they would also have good chances of winning a test series for the first time. "I took my time too because we wanted to get that partnership and losing another wicket at that point, the game would have been dead there and then".

Teams:Australia: Aaron Finch (c), Alex Carey (wk) Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Nathan Lyon, Peter Siddle, Jhye Richardson, Jason Behrendorff. India have played a number of batsmen at that position hoping to find the ideal fit, with the likes of KL Rahul, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina and even Hardik Pandya among others getting a chance.
