India-Australia first day score 3rd test

Today, Indian and Australian cricket teams played first day of third test in Perth. Indian captain Anil Kumble won the toss and decided to bat first. Indian team completed the day with 297 for the loss of 6 wickets. Perth wicket is known for its bounce and therefore, Indian team made two changes one in bowling with replacing Harbajan Singh with Irfan Pathan and second in batting with replacing Yuvraj Singh with Virender Sehwag. Main attraction of the Indian batting remains Sachin and Dravid and both scored half centuries with 71 and 93 runs respectively. Today, Rahul Dravid was back on his favourite third position and he also showed it by making 93 runs. Sachin Tendulkar once again became the victim of poor umpiring because he was given lbw on ball which was going above the wickets. Overall, this is a comfortable first day finish for India. In bowling Bret Lee and Mathew Johnson took 3 and 2 wickets respectively. Also visit Timetable/schedule Cricket World Cup 2011
