Brisbane: Australian fast bowler Josh Hazlewood credited Washington Sundar and Washington Sundar and Shardul Thakur for shielding India from their century-old partnership on day three of the fourth test. Along with this, it was also said that the host team’s bowlers could not pull off Sunday’s plan to send the Indian team’s tail batsmen early.
In response to Australia’s score of 369 for the first inning, the Indian team’s score was 186 for 6 wickets at a time. Washington (62) and Shardul (67), who made their debuts at the time, helped India score 336 points in the opening innings based on a vital 123-point partnership for the 7th wicket.

Hazlewood took 5 wickets for 57 races, after the day was over he told the virtual press conference: “ Yes, it is definitely an important partnership, but then we took their wickets. I think when the score was 6 wickets for 200 points we thought we were dominating there but to be honest both really hit brilliantly.
He said: “We couldn’t implement our plan well at that time as we wanted, but we had some opportunities. Hopefully we will be able to take advantage of these opportunities ahead, but the credit goes to these two drummers. He hit well and I think that shows that this wicket is very good.
Hazlewood admitted that Australia missed out on a few chances that could possibly make a difference. He said: “ I think the players played well again and everyone supported us. But some missed some chances and I think we made some chances. If we had realized these opportunities, it could have made a difference. ‘
