Australia Trails India by 16 Runs Heading Into Final Day of Test

March 17 (Bloomberg) -- Australia trails India by 16 runs heading into the final day of their third cricket Test in Mohali as the touring team tries to avoid going 3-0 down in the series.

Fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar removed top-order batsmen David Warner, Ed Cowan and Steve Smith to reduce Australia to 75-3 at stumps after India made 499 to take a 91-run lead on the first innings. Phil Hughes was unbeaten on 53, his highest score of the best-of-four contest, with Nathan Lyon on 4. Captain Michael Clarke is yet to bat after suffering back discomfort.

Shikhar Dhawan top scored with 187 in his Test debut for India, which would regain the Border-Gavaskar trophy by avoiding defeat. Fellow opener Murali Vijay made 153 and Virat Kohli struck an unbeaten 67. Peter Siddle was Australia’s best bowler, taking five wickets for 71.

With three sessions remaining in a match that lost the entire first day to rain, the draw is the most likely result at odds of 2-1 on, according to U.K. bookmaker William Hill. That means a successful $10 bet returns $15.
