The third Test match being played in Sydney has reached a turning point. In reply to Australia’s mammoth target of 407 runs on the fourth day, India scored 98 runs losing two wickets to stumps. Cheteshwar Pujara (9) and acting captain Ajinkya Rahane (4) returned unbeaten. Now all three results are possible on the last day of the test match. India will have to score 309 runs to win. Australia will have to take eight wickets to win and the match is also likely to be a draw.

On the third day of the third Test between India and Australia in Sydney, Australian captain Tim Paine lost his temper on a decision by the umpire, due to which he has been fined 15 percent of the match fees. Apart from this, a demerit point has also been received. Explain that the ICC’s demerit point is a player’s personal disciplinary record. Once a player is awarded demerit points, they remain on record for 24 months.

In fact, when the umpire gave Cheteshwar Pujara not out during the match against India, Penn disagreed with that decision and started arguing with the umpire. The Australian captain called abusive on-field umpire Paul Wilson.

In the 56th over of the innings, the Australian team appealed for a catch at short leg off Nathan Lyon. Leon believed that the ball went to Pujara’s fielder with a bat. But the on-field umpire called it not out. At this, Australian captain Tim Paine decided to take DRS. But the verdict came in India’s favor, the Kangaroo captain was disappointed.

He then went to the on-field umpire Wilson and argued with him. During this time Penn also used foul language. He told umpire Wilson, “One should take the same decision.” In response, Wilson said, “The decision is for the third umpire, not mine.”
