That's a wrap for our coverage of day three. Lots of body blows, lots of drama and very little respite for the batsmen. Kohli yet again stood tall. Lyon was outstanding and so has been Bumrah. Thanks for your company. Hope to see you tomorrow, we will be here with blog from 6:50 am IST. Do tune in.

Some of them were really nasty. How much of this are we going to see this tomorrow and perhaps if the game lasts, on day five! *Gulps*

Indian pacers at par with Aussies or one notch above them? What do you think?

End of day's play. India wanted to bowl one more over, after they were behind by four overs. Either way, Khawaja has anchored Australia today and the lead has swollen to 175 runs with at least five wickets remaining. It is shaping up to be a cracker of a Test!

Close of play on day three

Australia lead by 175 runs having lost four wickets, they might not have the services of Aaron Finch for the rest of the match, perhaps the series, after he walked off ahead of Tea with a finger injury. Khawaja and Paine to continue tomorrow. Australia might be just ahead as how things stand but we have seen how fast things have changed in this Test, so yes after three whole days, very little to choose between these two teams. Another highly engrossing and competitve day of Test cricket that will be headlined by Kohli's epic 123. 

The larger picture India won't want to chase anything over 220 on this surface of Perth, where cracks have started open up and are likely to widen on day 4. Batting on this pitch is gets challenging over after over. However, with Kohli in the opposite ranks, Australia won't feel comfortable if they have anything under 250-270.

15:25 (IST)
15:21 (IST)

After 48 overs,Australia 132/4 ( Usman Khawaja 41 , Tim Paine (C)(W) 8)

Loud appeal from the Indians for a caught behind down the leg side. Kohli doesn't review Dharmasena's on field call and it seems like a right one. HotSpot confirms it came off the Paine's back thigh. Kohli and Paine exchange a friendly chatter. Paine has a smile. Batsmen meet mid-pitch before the last ball of the over. Ishant goes past Khawaja's edge. Pant and slips run across to other end. Indians desperate for a wicket. But they will have to wait as stumps for the third day have been called.

After 47 overs,Australia 131/4 ( Usman Khawaja 41 , Tim Paine (C)(W) 7)

Khawaja once again loosely pokes it to gully fortunately for him the ball falls short. He has looked a little troubled since he was struck on his fingers, but he must see this period out for his side. A single comes off the over. We might have two more after this, I believe.

Day 2 report: Skipper Virat Kohli played a pivotal role with a workmanlike 82, lifting India from a double blow at the beginning of innings to 172 for three in the second Test against Australia here Saturday.

Kohli's unbeaten knock, coupled with Ajinkya Rahane's counterattacking 51, helped India to not only overcome the cheap dismissals of Murali Vijay (2) and K L Rahul (2), but also put the visitors in a position from where they can look to dominate the rest of the game.

The India captain stitched a 90-run unbroken partnership with Rahane by stumps on the second day, the stand coming after he added 74 with Adelaide hero Cheteshwar Pujara (24) for the third wicket.

This was after Australia's tail wagged to add 49 runs to their overnight total to finish at 326. India trailed by 154 more runs.

Post tea, Kohli and Pujara (24) batted in much the same manner as they did in the previous session. Their pace of scoring was slow, but they batted with assurance until Mitchell Starc (2-42) provided the breakthrough.

It came seven overs after the tea break as Pujara glanced a delivery down leg only to be caught behind, as his 74-run partnership with Kohli for the third wicket came to an end.

Rahane then joined Kohli in the middle, and initially he faced some issues getting used to the pace and bounce off the pitch. Unlike Pujara though, he took the bowling head on and counter-attacked with two boundaries and a six.

It set the pace for his partnership with Kohli, who was solid at the other end, and grinding down the Australian attack. The Indian skipper reached his 20th Test half-century off 109 balls as India crossed 100 in the 43rd over.

Their 50-partnership came off 106 balls as the duo settled down to see off the last hour before stumps. They cut down on the risks even more, only occasionally coming forth to play their shots.

In doing so, Rahane reached his 17th Test half-century before end of play as the two batsmen were sure in their shot selection and avoided any further damage to the Indian innings.

Earlier, Kohli and Pujara had seen India to 70 for two at tea. Post lunch, India were immediately under the pump as Josh Hazlewood (1-50) knocked over KL Rahul (2) in the third over after resumption of play.

Rahul was in two minds about how to play a full delivery aimed on the off-stump and was beaten all ends up as the ball destroyed his stumps.

It brought Kohli and Pujara together at the crease, and the duo concentrated on defence in order to push back the Australian attack.

The session turned out to be an intense battle with Nathan Lyon (0-34) keeping both batsmen under wraps as they tried not to play too many strokes against the off-spinner.

At the other end, Kohli also contended with Hazlewood who bowled an extended spell. The star batsman stood outside the crease and moved early on his front foot to deny any chance of a repeat with what happened at Rahul's dismissal.

They made slow progress, adding 37 runs in the first hour of play after lunch, and their 50-partnership came up in 135 balls. India had crossed 50 in the 22nd over.

There were a few more shots towards the end of this session, but overall Australia kept a tight leash on proceedings with both set batsmen deciding not to counterpunch.

Earlier, India were placed at six one at lunch with Starc bowling Murali Vijay for a 12- ball duck. This was after Ishant Sharma's 4-41 helped the visitors bowl Australia out for 326 runs in their first innings.

Starting from overnight 277-6, Australia added 49 runs to their total for the loss of four wickets. Tim Paine (38) and Pat Cummins (19) frustrated Indian bowling and enhanced their eighth wicket partnership to 59 runs.

In doing so, they took Australia past 300 in the 100th over. For their part, India were guilty of bowling too short again and there weren't enough full deliveries attacking the stumps or making batsmen play.

India were content with keeping a lid on the scoring as only 29 runs came in the first hour of play. They started the day's proceedings with Ishant and Mohammed Shami (0-80), with Umesh Yadav (2-78) starting as first change.

Jasprit Bumrah (2-53), who was India's standout bowler on day one, was the fourth to bowl in an inexplicable tactic from the skipper.

Finally, Yadav got the breakthrough with an over of full deliveries, knocking off Cummin's off-stump in the 105th. Two balls later, Bumrah trapped Paine lbw and the decision stayed despite a DRS review from the batsman.

Nathan Lyon (9 not out) stayed unbeaten for the third innings in a row as he added quick-fire 16 runs with Mitchell Starc to push Australia to a healthy total on a tough wicket.

Ishant then finished off things with two wickets in two balls, with Starc and Josh Hazlewood (0) caught behind with some acrobatic help from Rishabh Pant.

IPL 2020 Highlights, RR vs RCB Match, Full Cricket Score: AB de Villiers blitzkrieg takes Bangalore home with seven wickets in hand

Phew! What a chase! AB de Villiers arrived at the crease with 76 needed off 42 balls and he hit 55 of them from 22 balls with one four and six sixes. All through the innings the RCB batsmen were finding it difficult to get going. Paddikal struggled in the middle, Kohli could manage just one for and two sixes but then AB de Villiers batted on an altogether different wicket and pulled off a stunning win for RCB. That Unadkat 19th over which went for 25 runs was the turning point. May be Smith should have handed the penultimate over to Archer.

IPL 2020 Highlights, DC vs CSK Match, Full Cricket Score: Dhawan's maiden ton powers Delhi to five-wicket win over Chennai

Jadeja, and not Dwayne Bravo’s bowling the final over, and he starts off with a wide. Dhawan then collects two off the first legal delivery as he guides the ball towards the leg side. Axar Patel, however, reminds every just how useful he is with the bat in hand as he smashes Jadeja out of the park, collecting three sixes off four deliveries — to finish the game by himself as Delhi Capitals collect their seventh win of the campaign with five wickets and a delivery to spare! For Chennai, they’re condemned to their sixth defeat in nine games, and by now the prospect of making it to the playoffs looks very difficult indeed for MS Dhoni and Co!
