#IndiaInAustralia: Three key moments of Day three of third Test

Jasprit Bumrah took six wickets as Australia were skittled for 151

A number of specatators were ejected from the Melbourne Cricket Ground on day three of the third Test between Australia and India after racist chanting aimed at the touring side.

He was as incisive on Friday during India's second innings collecteing four wickets while yielding only 10 runs. Pat Cummins (17) and Paine showed some of the resistance that has been typical of Australia's tail of late, but failed to make hugely meaningful totals.

Explaining the logic behind India's decision to bat again instead of enforcing a follow-on, the fast bowler said the idea was to put up as many runs as possible before the bowlers have another go at the Australian batsmen. I just try to back myself in any situation that I go.

The home side's pace bowling onslaught made the visitors pay, taking five wickets - including a duck from Kohli - before heading to the change rooms 54/5. We are not focussing on that (tiring out Australian bowlers).

"We just wanted to play positive cricket".

"...last ball before lunch, Rohit Sharma was there at mid-off and he told me you can try a slow ball like you bowl in one-day cricket", he said.

However, when India came in to bat, Pat Cummins ripped through the top order to give Australia the slightest glimmer of hope.

"I think they've just chose to take the weather out of consideration", Harsha Bhogle told Fox Cricket as Pujara came to the crease after the fall of the first wicket, with India not appearing to be chasing quick runs.

It was just a matter of time for Head's partner Mitchell Marsh (9), whose lean patch with the bat has recently seen him warming the bench more than often and left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja took full advantage of his vulnerability.

Resuming the day at 8/0, Australia openers Marcus Harris (22) and Aaron Finch (8) could add only 16 runs before Ishant struck to dismiss Finch caught by debutant Mayank Agarwal.

Bumrah spearheaded an inspired Indian attack, grabbing a career-best haul of 6-33 that made the much-maligned MCG pitch look anything but flat.

It was a display of fierce, toe-crushing precision - four of Bumrah's six scalps were either bowled or leg before wicket, with one of those four a superb slower ball that bamboozled Shaun Marsh.

Despite his unique bowling action - think a catapult in human form - Bumrah was described as "technically perfect" by Kerry O'Keeffe on Fox Cricket, and it's hard to argue he's wrong.
