Kohli out but Pujara firm

India started very slowly in their second innings with a lead of 15 runs. KL Rahul showed some intent and took the innings forward along with Murli Vijay.

The pair soon brought up their 50 run partnership as Rahul played the aggressor role. Vijay got out edging one off the bowling of Starc. A few overs later, Rahul got out for 44 runs trying to hive one over the off side.

Captain Virat Kohli joined Chesteshwar Pujara at the crease with the team total at 76-2. The duo played defensively but made sure that the Aussies didn't get away with a wicket.

Lyon actually got Pujara out twice, but the decision was overturned by using Decision Review System.

After a 71-run partnership with Pujara, Kohli got out to Lyon finally for 34 runs. Ajinkya Rahane and Pujara kept Australia at the bay by not losing any more wickets till the end of day's play. The centurion from the first innings stayed not-out on 40 runs, while Rahane will resume his innings on day four from the score of 1 run.
