India vs Australia 3rd Test Melbourne: Seven-year-old Archie Schiller led the Australian team for the handshakes after India beat the hosts by 137 runs. Jasprit Bumrah starred with the ball with a nine-wicket haul for the match as India win their 150th Test ever and become only the fifth team to do so. The Virat Kohli-led outfit has now taken an unassailable 2-1 lead in the ongoing four-match series. But just watching the young leg-spinner must have been an extremely adorable sight for the fans and especially for the Schiller family.

This is also India’s first victory at the Melbourne Cricket Ground since 1981 when Kapil Dev starred with the ball to help India beat the hosts. The wait has been long and to be exact it has taken 37 years for India to taste a win at the iconic MCG.
India captain Virat Kohli lauded the pace trio for being pacy and consistent, he also backed the decision to not enforce the follow-on as he said that batting fourth would be difficult. He also credited Jasprit Bumrah for his outstanding bowling show and he also said that the hunger is sytill there and they want to win at Sydney and not be complacent after this win.
Jasprit Bumrah deservingly was awarded the Man of the Match.
The hosts will be looking to make amends for their poor performance in Melbourne with a stunning comeback in Sydney which has witnessed several emphatic wins for the home side over the years.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli, on the other hand, will be looking to build on the momentum and will leave no stone unturned to make it 3-1 at the SCG. The fourth and final Test starts on January 3, 2019.
