SYDNEY: Will Pucovski made a brilliant start to his test profession but David Warner’s return was a moist squib as Australia reached lunch on 21 for one after a rain-disrupted opening session of the 3rd test against India on Thursday.
With a gripping four-match series neatly poised at 1-1 after the first 2 contests in Adelaide and Melbourne, it was a frustrating start to a much-anticipated match with just seven overs being finished before the rain descended.
Australia won the toss and chosen to bat but Warner, who had missed out on the first two tests with a groin injury, dealt with simply 8 balls before pushing at a Mohammed Siraj shipment and being captured in the slips with simply five runs to his name.
Pucovski, who received his ‘saggy green’ cap prior to the start of play, had scored 14 and will resume with Marnus Labuschagne (2 not out) when the wet weather relents.
India also remembered a skilled batsman to the top of their order in Rohit Sharma and handed a test debut to seamer Navdeep Saini.
After a second outbreak of COVID-19 in Sydney, the match was being played in front of a reduced attendance of around 10,000 fans with the using of masks compulsory for fans except when they are consuming or drinking.
