After registering the crucial wicket of Cameron Green on Day 4, India are edging closer to victory against Australia in the ongoing second Test match, at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. The hosts finished the third day of the Boxing Day Test at 133 for six, leading India by just two runs. India are without their senior fast-bowler Umesh Yadav, who hobbled out of the park with a calf injury. According to media reports, Umesh is out of the ongoing Test match and is doubtful for the next match, starting to begin from January 7. On Day 3, Ravindra Jadeja was the pick of the bowlers for the visitors. He returned with figures of two for 25. Australia’s make-shift opener Matthew Wade top-scored for the hosts with a gutsy knock of 40. (LIVE SCORECARD)
