The third Test of the historic Border-Gavaskar trophy is being played in Melbourne Cricket Ground as the Boxing Day Test and India are the clear favorites for the game as per the stats on day 4.

Even though India are dominating the day 4, it was never short of actions between both teams. Australian batsmen also played attacking shots and Indian players also had their toes on the ground.

So far in the series, one of the most engaging things in the game is the words behind the stumps by the wicket-keepers of both teams. This becomes more vigorous in the third Test.

During the fourth day, Indian wicket-keeper Rishab Pant mocked the Australian skipper Tim Paine as the temporary captain behind the stumps when he came into bat.

“We’ve got a special guest today…..have you heard of a temporary captain ever ? You don’t need anything to get him out boys. He loves to talk, that’s the only thing he can do, only talking talking

On day 3 when Rishab Pant came into bat, Tim Paine offered a BBL contract and baby sitter job for Rishabh Pant behind the stumps. It seems like, the Indian wicket-keeper is giving his reply to the Australian captain.
