India's win against Australia in 3rd Test Match of Border-Gavaskar Cricket Trophy

India's win against Australia,after 37 years in Melbourne, made 2-1 in the series unbeatable.

India defeated Australia by 137 runs on the fifth and final day of the Boxing Day match of Border–Gavaskar Trophy on Sunday, winning 150th in the history of Test cricket. Team India has become the fifth country in the world to win 150 or more in the history of Test cricket. Australia's record of winning the most in Test history is recorded. Let's know which players played a key role in this victory of Team India ...

Border–Gavaskar Trophy

Jaspreet Bumrah, the greatest hero of the team India's victory. Bumrah took nine wickets in this match. In the first innings he took six wickets, while taking three wickets in the second innings. He was chosen Man of the Match for his best performance.

The team captain and coach were most upset about the opener in Perth Test. However, Mayank Agarwal did the job of reducing the headache of the team. Mayank gave a good start to the Indian team, playing 76 in 161 balls in the first innings. Muniemi contributed 42 runs in the second innings.
Test century specialist batsman Cheteshwar Pujara bats in the first Test century also got a century here. Pujara faced 319 balls and hit 106 runs with the help of 10 fours. During this, he added 83 runs with Mayank, while cooperating with Captain Virat, he shared 170 runs.
Team India captain Virat Kohli once again proved in this match that he is not only a great captain but also a wonderful batsman. Kohli scored 9 fours in 204 balls and helped his team win a glorious 82-run innings.
Border–Gavaskar Trophy

This match was also very special for Ravindra Jadeja, who took the wild card entry in the third Test. Jadeja played a key role in the team's victory by making two batsmen in the first innings of the Melbourne Test and making three batsmen in the second innings.
Australian captain Tim Pan admitted on Sunday that his team lacked restricted cricketers Steve Smith and David Warner. Australia suffered a 137-run defeat in the third Test on Sunday by Team India. Apart from Pat Cummins, a kangaroo player can not leave his influence. Pan said that due to lack of world class batsmen in the team, competing against a legendary India like Team India becomes a tough challenge. He said, 'I think non-experience, we lose due to pressure. By the way, bowling attack of Team India seemed to be one of the best.
He further said, 'It is clear from my view that even if there are two or three best players in your team, there is a little struggle on the field and your performance is seen continuously. The big deal is that we have a world-class player, who will soon return to the team. When he returns, he will create bigger differences. Smith and Warner's suspension will end by the end of March.
Australian batting coach Graeme Hick said his team needed to learn from Pujara and Kohli. He said, "We saw Kohli batting. We know that Pujara and Kohli are one of the best batsmen in the world. If he plays 25 or 26 balls, then the best innings is to play. You get to learn a lot from them. If you do not learn from them then you are not in the right place. '
Border–Gavaskar Trophy

Aaron Finch is struggling in the top order and he can be out of the team for the next Test in Sydney. Pan said on this, "I think there can be some changes in the team and I have also kept some thinking. But I would prefer to do this before the coach before the conference. I think good players are available in our group and we have to choose the best combination from that. "
However, India had set a target of 399 runs against Australia on the basis of their second innings, which Australia could not achieve, and their second innings ended at 261 runs. Although Pat Cummins (63) shared a nervous partnership with Nathan Lyon, adding 46 runs in the ninth wicket partnership. This is the reason why the Indian team, on the verge of winning the fourth day in Melbourne, had to land on the fifth day on the fifth day. Australia had scored 258 runs on the fourth day's loss of eight wickets. Pat Cummins (63) and Nathan Lyon (7) were unbeaten.

The worldwide break is going all out, and two Barcelona players were in real life in Saudi Arabia as Brazil won 2-0 at the King Saud Stadium because of objectives from Gabriel Jesus and Alex Sandro. Philippe Coutinho began for the Seleção and was supplanted by his club colleague Arthur, however, neither of the Blaugrana affected what was a quite exhausting amusement. Brazil was led by Neymar.

If the First Half Saudi Arabia we well played and showed their good organized play. Al Faraj and Al Dawsari gave a good threat to Brazil’s defensive squad. Somehow they couldn’t get goal results. But Saudi Arabia ware played a spectacular game.
In the Secon Half Brazil coach, Tite decided to change Fred for Lucas Moura, and this change got him good results.  Brazil played very quick game and shots were very direct.

Brazil started a very quick play but slowed their pace in the later stage of the game. Saudi Arabia couldn’t continue their beginning’s faster pace.   So finally it was a narrow win for Brazil side.
Team squad:
