It did not take lots of time to send both openers back to the dug out as Rahul was dismissed for 2
But Pujara,Kholi and Rahane was able to stabilise the inning and ended the day at 172 for 3.
Kholi played well for his unbeaten 82 and Rahane is on 52 at the crease.
Mitchelle Starc took 2 wickets for Australia as Hazelwood was able to take the wicket of Rahul.
We can say India is on top here and if they can get a first inning lead in this bouncy pitch it will be crucial for the decision of the match.
In Australia's point of view they are 1 wicket away from testing the India's lower middle order which is inexperienced.
