India suffered a scare as fast bowler Umesh Yadav complained of pain in his calf and limped off the field midway through his fourth over during Australia’s second innings on Day 3 of the Boxing Day Test.
Yadav was taken for scans after being assessed by the BCCI medical team. Yadav looked in fine rhythm and dismissed Australian opener, Joe Burns, for 4 in his second over before leaving the field in the middle of his fourth over.

Umesh Yadav seemed to have hurt his knee as he wobbled after completing the run-up in the 8th over. Umesh was in a lot of pain and called for attention immediately. Umesh went off the field and Mohammed Siraj completed the 8th over. India are already without the services of star pacers Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami in the Border Gavaskar series.
India were bowled out for 326 in the morning session on Day 3, having built a lead of 131 runs in reply to Australia’s first innings 195. India had resumed on 277 for five, with stand-in captain Ajinkya Rahane and Ravindra Jadeja looking to build a big lead under a cloudy sky that cleared to brilliant sunshine.
An absolute peach from Umesh Yadav and Joe Burns departs for four.

Those hopes were dashed when Jadeja ran out the India skipper for 112, hitting to short cover and taking off for a single that was never really there. Jadeja pulled a short ball to deep midwicket where Cummins scurried forward and dropped to his knees to take a fine, low catch. Jadeja was out for 57.
