The India-Australia fourth Test in Ahmedabad is heading towards a draw. Australia, who started batting on the final day with an overnight score of 3/0, lost only one wicket after batting 30 overs in the first session.

Matthew Kuhneman, who came in as the night watchman, scored 6 runs off 35 balls with a four before being dismissed lbw off the bowling of Ravichandran Ashwin. Ravichandran Ashwin created a record as the bowler who dismissed 15 players for Australia in the Border Gavaskar Trophy 2023 tournament with the wicket of Kuhneman…

Australia lost their first wicket at 14 runs, supported by Travis Head and Marnus Labushane. Travis Head scored 45 runs off 96 balls with 5 fours and a six, while Marnus Labuschagne scored 22 runs off 85 balls with 2 fours. The duo put on an unbeaten 152-ball 59-run partnership for the second wicket. Australia scored 73 runs for the loss of a wicket at lunch break on the final day…

Earlier in the first innings, Team India was bowled out for 571 runs and got a lead of 91 runs. Australia, who scored 73 runs, are still only 18 runs away. Still with 9 wickets in hand and only two sessions left to play, the final Test looks certain to end in a draw…

After the lunch break, if the Indian bowlers give a great performance and bowl Australia out, there are chances of the match result. Australian opener Usman Khawaja was injured while fielding on day four. That’s why Australia has sent young spinner Matt Kuhneman as opener to bat at number 10 in his place. If Usman Khawaja doesn’t recover from his injury, the retired will be out hard. In that count, it would be enough for Team India to take 8 more wickets.
