There was a scary moment during Day 4's play of the Boxing Day Test between Australia and India at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Melbourne on Saturday.

In the 16th over of the Aussie second innings, Mayank Agarwal, fielding at forward short leg, copped one on the neck, leaving everyone concerned.

Usman Khawaja swept Ravindra Jadeja's second delivery of the over along the ground, and the ball hit him near Adam's apple. It could have resulted in a severe injury, even proved fatal.

Agarwal was taken off the field with KL Rahul coming on as his sub. Fortunately for everyone, the debutant returned after the end of 22nd over and resumed his fielding duties.

Watch it here:

An unbeaten half-century from all-rounder Pat Cummins denied India the pleasures of winning the match on the fourth day.

At Stumps, Australia were 258/8 with Cummins and Nathan Lyon unbeaten on 61 and 6 respectively. It leaves India two wickets shy of a win, and Australia still 141 runs behind.
