India vs Australia 4th Test Sydney: India cricketer KL Rahul showed a great display of honesty after he took a catch on Day 3 of Marcus Harris at the Sydney Cricket Ground. The gesture was so good that umpire Ian Gould personally walked up to him to thank him for the good sportsmanship spirit. The incident took place of the bowling of Ravindra Jadeja in the 14th over of the Australian first innings. It was Harris who waltzed down the track, got to the pitch of the ball and wanted to go over long on, but did not get the height on the ball as he may have come a little too close to the pitch of the ball. KL Rahul took a couple of quick steps to his right and then leaped close to the ground and managed to hold onto it. But he knew it was taken on the first bounce and he immediately shared that with the umpire and Harris survived.
Here is the video:
Meanwhile, Marcus Harris has gone on and is currently on 77, 23 runs shy of his maiden Test century. He has looked in good touch and the young cricketer deserves it totally. He looked confident even when he walked out to bat for merely 10 overs. He was looking positive and playing his shots. He is also getting good support from the other end after Harris and Khawaja got the hosts off to a sound start. Currently, Labuschange is on 18 and Australia is on 122/1 and still trail by 500 runs. Kuldeep Yadav has got the first wicket for India.
