Rahul: Cracks will open up on day four

"After a forgettable first day, India have shown tremendous fight today". "With the odd ball shooting through with that up and down bounce, we could be more straighter".

"After looking at the reviews (of Kohli's dismissal), you could see the ball just touching the pad before the bat".

Batting coach Sanjay Bangar also felt that the home side must bat really well in the next two sessions of the fourth day if they want to set the Kangaroos a stiff target. That's the only way we could put pressure back, because the fielders were back on the boundaries. His first five-wicket instance against them was 5 for 58 at Delhi in March 2013.

"We use it in Australia and it can be the difference between not out and out", said Hazlewood.

"If we can put up another good show in the next two or three sessions then we should be in a good position", he said while declining to nominate a target - with India's lead now a challenging, if not daunting, 126 - from which they considered themselves unlikely to get rolled. I think there is nothing wrong with the Indian batting lineup.

The hosts compiled three consecutive 600-plus totals before the Pune test and their last three innings have all been under 200. So if we continue to bowl the way we have bowled and the bowlers will have some plans tomorrow for Starc and the other batsman.

"It's something that we want him to improve in the games to come because he is a quality player", Bangar said. Jadeja failed to recreate the magic he had shown with the ball as Hazlewood got one to move in sharply and disturb the timber.

Off-spinner Lyon, who had grabbed a career-best Test haul of 8-50 in the first innings, went wicketless on a day when Indian spinner Jadeja claimed six wickets.

Jadeja, who bowled only 21.4 overs, as compared to Ravichandran Ashwin's 49, Umesh Yadav's 24, and Ishant Sharma's 27, dismissed six of the Australian batsmen. Australian fielders appealed for a leg-before, but not the bowler. It wasn't easy for the fast bowlers because there wasn't much help. "Obviously, there was the odd ball that stayed low but they had to put in a lot of hard work". Spinners did very well. We will focus on bowling the right line and length and wickets will come. At times there were some close calls and we didn't get it right. Our bowlers have bowled every well.

Rahul scored the second half century of the match, his first in 15 test matches and during the course he also completed scoring 1000 runs in test cricket.

In Pujara's debut Test at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in October 2010, MS Dhoni promoted him from No. 6 to No. 3 when India were 17 for 1 chasing a potentially tricky 207. I don't think it was a long season.

A gritty 60 off the bat of Matt Renshaw ensured he had played more than his part before he too was removed by Jadeja.
