Former England skipper Michael Vaughan prediction of Australia winning the ongoing Test series against India hasn’t gone right. Consequently, Vaughan has accepted the mistake of his wrong prediction. India won the third Test match at MCG by 137 runs and have taken an impregnable lead of 2-1. Thus, the visitors have also retained the Border-Gavaskar trophy.
India was able to tick the right boxes as they came up with a collective team effort. They posted a competitive total of 443 in the first innings as Virat Kohli, Mayank Agarwal and Rohit Sharma scored fifties. On the other hand, Cheteshwar Pujara played a gutsy knock of 106.
India will like to go all the way.
Subsequently, India came up with fine bowling performance with Jasprit Bumrah leading the way. Bumrah scalped his best bowling figures of 6-33 to rattle the Australian batting. The gun pacer also bowled a fine slower yorker which was remembered for a long time.

Meanwhile, Michael Vaughan praised Cheteshwar Pujara and Jasprit Bumrah for their performance in the third Test. However, Australia’s batting lacked experience and their batting has been poor.
Vaughan posted, “I got it wrong … India produced a magnificent performance … High-class team … @cheteshwar1 & @Jaspritbumrah93 are wonderful cricketers & people … The Aussies can’t cope with being put under Pressure .. Batting is very very poor … #AUSvIND”.
