89.3 Ishant Sharma to Nathan Lyon

OUT! Caught. Ishant Sharma to Nathan Lyon. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge to wicketkeeper, by Pant. Ishant does the job as Lyon can't resist the short ball. Feathered through to Pant and India win by 137 runs and retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, as well as winning their 150th Test match. It was slightly nervous this morning as rain kept them off the field but once they got out they only needed 27 deliveries to get the job done.A brilliant performance all round from the Indian team with a century from Cheteshwar Pujara in the first innings and then nine wickets in the match for Jasprit Bumrah. Credit to Pat Cummins though who scored 80 runs and took nine wickets but came out on the losing side.All eyes now on Sydney on the 2nd January as India seek to become the first Indian team to win a Test series on Australian soil. The Aussies will have something to say about that and they might have a few new faces in the XI. Do join us then.

88.2 Jasprit Bumrah to Pat Cummins

OUT! Caught. Jasprit Bumrah to Pat Cummins. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to first slip, by Pujara. That's the wicket India have been searching for. Cummins has been superb with the bat but a new day brings a new challenge. Fresh bowlers and Bumrah gets the ball nice and full drawing Cummins forward. Fraction of movement with the new hard ball and the edge is taken at first slip.

Ishant Sharma to Pat Cummins. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Vihari. Hello and a warm welcome to the fifth and final day of the third Test. India fans might be slightly nervous now we have lost a whole session due to rain but play is about to eventually start much to the delight of the MCG crowd. Scattered showers are also forecast later on but for now we have a break in play and India will want to finish the game quickly. Only two balls are required for them while Australia will look to keep out as many deliveries as possible with a slim possibility of a draw still on the cards, or even a victory.
