Australia had lost their four wickets on the score of 113 till the three day’s play. Then it seemed that Australia would lose by an innings and a few runs. But the rain supported Australia completely. On the fourth day, there was a great partnership between Labushen and Marsh and Australia’s defeat was also averted. Now there are chances of rain on the fifth day as well. In such a situation there is good news for Australia.
