Check. Accuracy? Check, check.
Australia were bowled out for 151 runs in their first innings on day three of the third Test in Melbourne today. Ishant and Bumrah began with more catching fielders in front of the wicket than behind and bowled straighter lines, as demanded by the pitch.
Bumrah claimed career-best figures of 6/33 in the Boxing Day Test to accumulate 45 Test wickets in 2018.
"I think they've just made a decision to take the weather out of consideration", Harsha Bhogle told Fox Cricket as Pujara came to the crease after the fall of the first wicket, with India not appearing to be chasing quick runs.
Debutant opener Mayank Agarwal was 28 not out at stumps with pugnacious wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant on six.
The four-match series is tied at 1-1 after India won the first Test in Adelaide by 31 runs and Australia won the second Test in Perth by 146 runs. There was a funky short square leg at place and both Pujara and Kohli ended up playing straight into the hands of the fielder.

"So I was always confident that whenever I get a chance [to play Test cricket], I will be able to do well".
From there on, the right-handed duo batted sensibly, punishing the odd delivery for a boundary although the Indian bowlers continuously kept asking questions with some disciplined stuff. This left India with a lead of 346.
Many feel India already have enough runs on the board and they should start thinking of the time.
With the four-test series poised at 1-1, much will depend on how the MCG's maligned drop-in wicket performs for an Australian batting order still finding their feet. All Finch could manage was eight runs. The left-hander scored 22 but couldn't convert it into something substantial.
Usman Khawaja (21) fell to this ploy, caught at short leg, as Australia slipped further to 53 for 3 in the 20th over.
With Marsh looking well set on 19 and having apparently weathered the early storm, Bumrah pulled out a slower ball yorker on the final delivery of the first session. He told me that I use it quite a lot in white-ball cricket and I could still try it. With 67 overs in the first innings, surely workload wasn't an issue. Venkatesh Prasad (37 wickets in 1996), Narendra Hirwani (36 wickets in 1988) and S Sreesanth (35 in 2006) are the other three bowlers in the top-five.
