Both the teams are now competing for that decider match which will almost lock the Trophy to the won who wins the third test and talking about the present scenario, Kangaroos are dominating all over Men in Blue.
Indian openers took a good start but lost wicket of young Shubman Gill, afterwards an incident took place which almost created a run out situation for Hitman. His lazy approach created that scenario. In the 17th over of visitors second innings where they need 407 runs to win the match where Rohit lost wicket to Pat Cummins.
The run-out tale
Hitman was trying to go for a shot but eventually ball gets hit up on the pads and goes to second slip player that was Marnus Labuschagne. Hitman tried to come out of the crease and Marnus took that opportunity to get rid him off and threw a direct hit to the stumps.

The run out decision was goes to third umpire but in the decision it was seen a light edge of foot was inside the crease made him save. The approach by Hitman was unjustified as he could lose his wicket as it as just a close call and if his foot gets outside line then Australians could hit up more pressure on the visitors.
At that time, Rohit was at the score or 18 runs and team was on 42-0.
It was the luck which save Rohit from that run-out. After that both the openers made a partnership of 71 runs on the board whereas the partnership didn’t last too long as Josh Hazlewood came and gave breakthrough of Shubman Gill who scored 31 runs off 64balls. Right now India has lost two wickets as Rohit was also got out by scoring 52 runs off 95balls.
