India's coach Anil Kumble said attention would be back on the pitch for the third test against Australia after the last match ended on a sour note over the use of Decision Review System (DRS) technology.Following the end of the test won by India, captain Virat Kohli alleged his Australian counterpart Steve Smith had flouted the rules on reviewing umpire decisions."I think what was important was to bring the focus back on cricket and I am really glad that the BCCI took a mature call along with Cricket Australia to issue a joint statement that cricket needs to move on and we have moved on from whatever happened in that background," Kumble told reporters on Tuesday.

Both captains escaped any charges from the International Cricket Council over the dispute involving the Decision Review System (DRS) in Bengaluru, while the Board of Control for Cricket in India and Cricket Australia released a joint statement to resolve the matter.

India succumbed to their first defeat in 15 test matches with a humiliating 333-run loss against Australia in the first test at Pune last month, but clinched the second in Bengaluru last week, beating the visitors by 75 runs."We would like to finish the last two test matches in a very good way, and I am sure it will be something that we will be cherishing," .

"I think India have responded really well," he said ahead of the third match of the four-test series which starts on Thursday at first-time test venue Ranchi.After a series win against West Indies in July, India hosted and won test series against New Zealand and England as well as a victory over Bangladesh.
