As a result, Cummins was able to declare boldly, giving the Test match one and a half sessions.
The Indian openers showed off their quick scoring skills while up against a challenging objective. Unfortunately, Green dismissed one of the Indian batters at the stroke of tea with an outstanding catch at gully. However, Rohit and Pujara showed off their strong play in the last session and kept India’s scoreboard moving. However, they lost steam when Lyon delivered the first over and the Indian skipper, Kohli, fell to him while attempting a sweep shot.
Pujara produced an unusual shot in the very next over and then followed his skipper back to the pavilion.

Day 4 of the WTC 2023 Final: Controversial Call of Gill’s Wicket
Controversial Call from Boland to Shubman as Gill departs. The umpires consult and decide that Gill should be sent upstairs to be checked for a clean catch. When viewed from the front, the camera angle isn’t excellent. The third umpire examines the ball and remarks, “Fingers underneath the ball.” But once more, the appearance of this camera perspective is poor. He has made up his mind. Gill must go when the word OUT shows on the large screen. Gill must go when the word OUT shows on the large screen. As he keeps hitting that decent length around off stump, Boland has him once more.
Day 4 of the WTC 2023 Final: AUS Delcare After a Good Score
After Starc was dismissed, Cummins decided to step out to bat, although he only stayed in the game for three balls. But by declaring their innings, Australia made a brave decision, giving India a daunting goal of 444 runs to win the World Test Championship. India would need to beat the existing world record for the highest fourth-inning chase on an unexpected and difficult pitch in order to accomplish this achievement. Australia’s prospects of winning hinge on sustaining a decent over-rate with 47 overs remaining in the day and possibly 90 more tomorrow.
