Australia posted a lead of 87, Jadeja ended up with up 6 wickets but bizarrely bowled vastly fewer overs than the other 3 Indian bowlers.

88-2 India KL Rahul 51 to go with his 90 in the first innings. Before Smith got him a worldie at slip.

Rahul has been the best batsman thus far in this series.

Need a lot of luck on this pitch to get runs, marsh had it in the first innings and now pujara. Agree that Rahul looks the most comfortable in these conditions.
Key partnership this one, probably determine the result

I still don't understand why they have under bowled Jadeja.. I think on this wicket he could be the most dangerous

Yup, I presumed he was injured when I tuned in yesterday morning midway though the day's play.

2 big wickets near the end of the session. Was jadeja sent in as a pinch hitter?

Nah, because it was easier going for leftie's I'd say, played like a dick regardless.

I've watched a couple of post innings interviews with Renshaw and I just love this kids attitude.

Effectively 126-4. Pujara did well after his early luck
Don't buy the commentators saying the pitch has gone flat - still turning and bouncing. Lyon's finger injury didn't help.

Aussies missing a 5th bowler (M Marsh doesn't count) - Smith should have bowled himself a couple overs.

India batting itself back into the game, we will struggle to chase to many more.

if u factoring in that aussies have to bat last

good to see Kohli is human, a few failures for him thus far

Another 70-80 runs tomorrow and it's going to take something special for Oz to chase it down IMO, india have needed a lot of luck to get to the position they're in.

Australian seamers have been completely out bowled by india, both Hazelwood and Starc failed to build any sort of pressure going at 4 runs an over, whereas sharma and yadav went at around 2. Interesting to note that mitch marsh only bowled 3 overs for 4 runs, seems as though smith is really underbowling him. I can't see australia chasing over 200, but the pitch seems to have settled somewhat, interesting couple of days ahead.

India's revival is down to not just gifting their wickets to Lyon and SoK. India milked the spinners, and niether Lyon nor SoK have the genius to actually get top class players out. Starc has been very poor. Australia missing someone like Pattinson.

India did gift their wickets away, I don't think anyone sensible would dispute it.. however, these Indian batsmen are over rated and aren't top class at all. They don't appear to have the techniqie or midset to bat long when it's not a road. What renshaw did was really good test match batting until he too succumbed to biff biff and charged recklessly down the wicket
