Ashwin (2×4 off 10:15 balls) tried to play aggressively. Navdeep Saini (3) was caught by Mathews in Starc bowling. Bumrah (0) was also run out after that. Among the Australian bowlers, Pat Cummins took four wickets while Hazlewood took two and Mitchell Starc one.
The Indian batsmen were disappointed in the Sydney Test. On Saturday, the third day of the game, India continued their first innings with an overnight score of 96/2 and were bowled out for 244.

At the end, Ravindra Jadeja (28 not out: 5×4 off 37 balls) scored valuable runs. Australia, who were all out for 338 in the first innings on Friday, had a 94-run lead.
