After a good start by Australia, India have registered some crucial early wickets on Day 4 of the ongoing fourth and final Test match, at The Gabba in Brisbane. The home side have lost their opening pair Marcus Harris (38) and David Warner (48), despite their strong start on Day 4. Harris lost his wicket to Shardul Thakur. Meanwhile, Warner was sent back to the pavilion by Washington Sundar. Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne are currently batting for Australia, and are unbeaten. The likes of Mohammed Siraj and T Natarajan will be hoping to build on their fine form. On Day 3, India fought back to finish at 336 in their first innings reducing the deficit by a huge margin. With predictions of rain on Day 4, Australia will be looking to score quick runs to put pressure on the visitors and grab a much-needed win. For India, a draw will see them retain the Border Gavaskar trophy, with the series tied at 1-1, but will be looking to secure back-to-back series wins Down Under. (LIVE SCORECARD)
