Turned out to be another day marked by some riveting action between the two sides, with India tilting the balance of the game in their favour with some calculated batting in their second essay.
Cheteshwar Pujara, the visitors' hero with the bat in their first innings, remains crucial to India's chances of posting a sizeable target on the board. Australia, on the other hand, will hope for a couple of wickets to fall early on the fourth day, having netted the big fish in Virat Kohli already.
That brings us to the end of our coverage of the third day of the opening Test between India and Australia. Do join us tomorrow for the fourth day, one that we hope turns out to be as exciting.
