Rahane out despite reaching the line
Ajinkya Rahane (Ajinkya Rahane) added eight runs in his second day’s score of 104 and then was run out unfortunate. In the 100th over of the match, Jadeja was one run away from his half-century and he ran for a run, playing the ball in the direction of the covers. After this, Rahane, standing at the non-striker’s end, was given the run out, while in replays it was clear that his bat had reached the line. Rahane scored 12 fours in his 112-run innings, facing 223 balls.
Tim Paine gets the benefit of doubt
At the same time, during the Australian innings, in the 55th over, Australian batsman Cameron Green ran for a run, playing the shot and captain Tim Paine, standing on a non-strike, also ran for runs. Then the ball reached the hands of wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant and he scattered the stumps. After this, it was clearly seen in the replays that Tim Paine’s bat crease was above the line, but he got the benefit of doubt (Doubt) and the third umpire did not give out.
Fans troll the umpire
It’s simple: it’s called biased umpiring.

The difference between this and the Paine run out is that the bails are dislodged when Rahane is on the crease line. For Paine, the bails dislodged inbetween frames and it was much more ambiguous

That should have been NOT OUT on the basis that the Australians did not appeal alone. I, for the life of me, can’t see the difference b / w this and NOT OUT run out yesterday.

Cheat. Paine doesn’t get pain but rahane gets harsh … Simon toff said bails has to come off from both stumps which was not the case

India hold strong in match
In the Boxing Day Test being played in Melbourne, the Indian team has strengthened its grip and by the end of the third day, Australia had scored 133 runs losing 7 wickets. Australia has somehow crossed the 131-run lead taken by India and took a two-run lead. However, in the situation where the Australian team is, it is difficult for them to have a big target in front of India. The Indian bowlers had bowled Australia out for 195 in the first innings, then scored an lead of 326 runs in their first innings.
