Indian all-rounder Washington Sundar was right on the money for India when he took to the crease on Sunday with the bat for the Indian team against Australia. Sundar, who made his Test debut for the Indian cricket team in the final Test of the series against Australia, smacked a scintillating no-look six to Nathan Lyon on the third day of the Brisbane Test.
Sundar has had a splendid Test debut so far for team India in the absence of Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin. The young Indian all-rounder took 3 wickets on his debut as India bowled first. Then, he stitched a 123-run partnership with Shardul Thakur for the 7th wicket to put India right back in the Test match.
Washington Sundar Smokes Nathan Lyon For A No-Look Six
Washington Sundar showed his prowess with the bat for team India on Sunday as he walked into bat when team India was lurking at 161-5. He first batted with Rishabh Pant and then his splendid partnership with Shardul Thakur began. Both the batsmen scored runs at a quick rate and both scored half-centuries.
Washington kept continuing the onslaught after Shardul’s departure and one moment of brilliance came when the left-hander smocked Nathan Lyon for a huge no-look six.

Team India Narrow Australia’s Lead As Tailenders Thrive On Day 3
The Australian team was frustrated with the Indian tailenders as they narrowed the Australian lead to a large extent. Shardul Thakur and Washington Sundar stitched a 123-run partnership for the Indian team. Until this report was written, the Indian team had scored 329 runs as the Australian lead remained just of 40 runs.
The Indian team has only wicket left in their arsenal and they will surely like to narrow the Australian lead as much as possible. The Kangaroos, on the other hand, will try to clinch the final wicket and thrive on a longer lead.
