Australia were 63/0 when Head was dropped by Shubman Gill at Deep Square Leg. Nevertheless, Pandya managed to remove Head and then Australia skipper Steve Smith in a gap of few balls. However, the Indian fielders continued to drop catches even after this. Mohammed Siraj drop a sitter of David Warner, evoking sharp reactions from spinner Ravindra Jadeja.
The incident happened during the Australian innings when Warner pulled Jadeja and saw his catch getting dropped by Siraj. Siraj is not known for his fielding and he continues to be a slow mover in the field.
Meanwhile, Jadeja didn’t take this act kindly and screamed his heart out. On the other hand, commentator Sunil Gavaskar spoke his heart out on air.
"With Siraj what we have seen over the years, in the last 2-3 years - He still hasn't developed that instinct. So, it was a late start. This was a tough one, make no mistake. It wasn't an easy catch at all. But he started late and therefore he had to dive. No wonder! (Talking about Jadeja’s scream of anguish) But then, it can’t be your standards, Ravindra. Your standards are sky high," Gavaskar said on-air.

Australian skipper Steve Smith said at the toss, "We are gonna have a bat. Looks like quite a dry surface, it is pretty hot out here. Will look to put a good total on this surface. We have had good fun and it will be exciting in the decider. David Warner is back and Cameron Green is feeling unwell, so there are changes."
Indian skipper Rohit Sharma said at the toss,"We were looking to field first. It's an important game and the deciders are always interesting. It's always good to put us in this situation. It's a challenge for us to come back and play some good cricket under pressure. Hopefully we can put our best foot forward. Australia are a good team and you can always test your depth. We are playing with the same team. We were thinking of playing with four seamers but the conditions here are suitable for the spinners, so we go with three spinners."
