Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma’s reaction after Ravindra Jadeja’s dismissal in Indore Test goes viral Watch
Indian fans were left disappointed after the Rohit Sharma-led side were bundled out for 109 on the first day of the third Test against Australia in Indore. Opting to bat first, Team India got off to a steady start with skipper Rohit and Shubman Gill sharing a 27-run partnership. However, the visitors then introduced spin into the attack and India lost five wickets for 18 runs. The collapse began with the dismissal of Rohit, which was followed by Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Shreyas Iyer and Ravindra Jadeja. Spin duo Matthew Kuhnmann and Nathan Lyon were among the bowlers as the duo scalped five and three wickets respectively, but Jadeja’s dismissal left everyone heartbroken.
After coming up the order, the star all-rounder failed to make an impression with the bat as he was dismissed by Nathan Lyon for just four runs. During the 11th over, Lyon hit Jadeja on the pads and appealed for LBW, which was given out by the on-field umpire. Jadeja went for DRS where the ultra-edge showed a spike as the ball touched the bat and the all-rounder survived the appeal. The decision brought a sigh of relief to the Indian camp but their joy was short-lived as Jadeja took a shot on the very next ball which went straight to Kuhnmann and he had to go.

As Jadeja was walking back towards the dugout, the cameras captured the disappointed expression of Virat Kohli, who was standing at the non-striker’s end. The camera then panned to Rohit, who looked dejected as he sat in the dugout.
Australian spinner Matthew Kuhnmann took five wickets and Nathan Lyon took three to bundle out India for 109 on the first day of the third Test in Indore on Wednesday.
Australia attempted to fight back in the four-match series from two heavy defeats, introducing spin in the sixth over after India won the toss and elected to bat.
India made two changes to the team that won in Delhi, with Gill coming in for Rahul and pacer Yadav coming in comfortably for Mohammed Shami.
Australia also made two changes under Smith in the absence of Pat Cummins.
Starc replaced Cummins, while Cameron Green came in for David Warner, who was ruled out of the remaining two matches due to an elbow fracture and injury sustained in the second Test in Delhi.
