Jadeja has created havoc among the Australian batting line up as he has sent back both the openers. He has sent back Maxwell and Warner very cheaply with both the openers failing to read his ball and play accordingly. Both of them scored 8 runs each and at the time of writing this article Aussies had lost two very important wickets and their total score was just 20 runs.

Earlier india took a slender lead of just 10 runs and unlike Australian tailenders their tail couldn’t face the disciplined bowling of the Australian speedsters. The last two batsmen failed to score a single run though Jadeja and Ashwin got some runs for their team towards the end of the match and gave India a much needed, though slight lead in the fourth match of the tournament. Though the hosts have already won the series by winning the first three games against Aussies, Indians are not taking this match lightly.

But NM Lyon is being credited for bringing back the match to Australia. His seven wicket haul in a single inning is the best performance by any Australian bowler in this important series so far. He took the wickets of Pujara, Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahane, Ashwin, Sharma and the last man Ojha. This was a very high class performance by not just an Australian bowler but by any bowler in the series from both the teams in a single inning.
