While all of India is looking enviously at the Australian spectators, watching live sport seems a distant reality for us. The coming investigation will provide answers, but also raise questions: Where should we draw the line on what is acceptable? Racism is certainly not, but is non-racist abuse alright?

India vs Australia Highlights, 3rd Test, Day 1: Pucovski, Labuschagne fifties take Australia to 166/2

By hindustantimes.com | Hindustan Times, New Delhi
UPDATED ON JAN 07, 2021 02:08 PM IST

India vs Australia third Test Day 1 highlights: Australia finished Day 1 of the Sydney Test on 166/2. A total of 55 overs were bowled in the day with rain washing out more than three hours of play. Marnus Labuschagne (67*) scored a half-century and remained unbeaten along with Steve Smith (31*), their partnership reading 60 off 125 balls. For India, debutant Navdeep Saini dismissed fellow debutant Will Pucovski to pick up his maiden Test wicket for India, but not before the Australian opening batsmen scored a brilliant half-century playing his first Test. India had a couple of chances let go by Rishabh Pant, who, twice in two overs, dropped Pucovski. He and Labuschagne added a 100-run partnership. Early lunch was taken after just 7.1 overs in which Australia scored 21 runs and lost the wicket of David Warner. Australia opted to bat first after winning the toss in the third Test against India. Bio-bubble breach investigations, reports of India’s unwillingness to travel to Brisbane if stricter quarantine rules are forced on them, former Australian cricketers and media throwing jibes, we’ve had everything that could spice-up the proceedings in the third Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Both India and Australia have landed a punch each and just like the third day - the moving day of a Test - this third Test at Sydney has all the ingredients to be the decisive one of the four-match series. Rohit Sharma returns to the playing XI for India, young Saini makes his debut. Australia, on the other hand, will have a new opening pair with David Warner and Will Puvocski both regaining fitness and playing.Follow India vs Australia highlights Day 1 3rd Test in Sydney:
