India extends its lead to 223 thanks to Axar and Shami

On the third morning, India's lower order continued to wag as they added 78 runs despite Todd Murphy finishing with a seven-wicket haul.

Ravindra Jadeja's early wicket came when the offspinner bowled him for 70 with shouldering motions. Early in the day, both offspinners had some traction, which raised the chance of wrapping up the innings quickly.

After that, Mohammed Shami was knocked out by Scott Boland off Nathan Lyon, which was costly. After that, Shami and Axar Patel put up 52 runs together while Shami pounded out three sixes and two fours in his 37. India's lead increased to almost 200 as a result of this.

Finally, Shami stumbled while attempting to strike Murphy and received a top edge that the keeper snatched up.

Then, when Axar became a little more daring in his quest for his first Test century, Mohammad Siraj was able to hold one end up with tight defense. With India finishing on an even 400, the last wicket partnership contributed 20 runs before the all-rounder was eventually bowled by Pat Cummins with a slower delivery.
