Warner’s wicket dropped, rain stopped play (lead-1)

Sydney, 7 January (IANS) The game of the first session of the first day of the third Test match between India and Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) started on Thursday has been stopped due to rain.

The rain that came with the first ball of the eighth over of the innings forced the players to leave the field.

At that time, Australia had scored 21 runs for one wicket in 7.1 overs. The hosts have lost the wicket of opener David Warner, batting first to win the toss.

Mohammed Siraj gave Australia the first blow in the Sydney Test that started on Thursday by catching Warner in the slip on a personal total of five.

Will Pukowski, playing his first Test, is unbeaten on 14 and Marnus Labuschain scoring two runs.

This is the third match of the four-match Test series between the two teams. Both are now 1–1 on par.

While the hosts took the lead in the series by winning by eight wickets in the day-night Test played in Adelaide, India equalized with a stunning victory in Melbourne.
