Australia opener Marcus Harris on Saturday missed out on a hundred at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on Day 3 of the fourth and final Test against India.
Harris (79) scored his second Test half-century in the morning session, but was out within three overs on resumption, playing a rash shot off Ravindra Jadeja.
The last ball of the 43rd over during Australia’s first innings was well tossed up by Jadeja and it went with the angle.
Harris wasn’t fully forward nor back and pushed the ball well away from his body only to inside edge it on to his leg-stump.
Here’s the video:

“I got out playing a pretty half-arsed shot. I am more disappointed in myself than anything. I think it is always a goal against the spinners is to be aggressive early and once you’re able to get those sweepers out, it is to be able to hit them hard and just not milk them as much as you can,” said Harris at stumps on day three.
