Lyon eventually bagged Australia a third wicket when Kohli edged him to Aaron Finch at bat-pad but the hosts now seem set for a hard run chase in the first game of the four-match series. The last time they opened for India, in a hammering from England at Lord's, their stands read 0 and 0.

KL Rahul was the first of the two to break the self-imposed shackles, going for repeated big drives against the pacers.

After Kohli's departure Rahane 13 off 31 balls with a six also fell to Hazlewood in the 21st over.

Vijay's discipline, however, deserted him three overs later, as Mitchell Starc broke through to have India at 64/1.

As Kohli and Pujara used their pads to negate the threat of Lyon in the afternoon session, the crowd responded with a slow hand clap. He even had Rahul dropped once, and Pujara twice reprieved through DRS.

Skipper Kohli too had a short stay at the crease after being caught off by Khawaja in Cummins spell in the 11th over. By then the duo had put on a 71-run stand for the third wicket, taking the game further away from the hosts, along with the lead earned in the morning.

"He hits the bat harder and quicker than any of the spinners I've faced in Australia so you have to be at your best against guys like Nathan and their bowling attack".

Jurgen Klopp Handed Punishment Over Derby Pitch Invasion
Following the clash, the Dutchman admitted via ESPN : "When I hit it, I thought, 'Never again!' and looked back to the defence. I didn't want to run", Klopp said, per the Liverpool Echo .

A 3-1 series win for Australia means they will finish on 107 points and India will end on 111 points.

The day started with a 45-minute delay because of rain.

Travis Head of Australia looks dejected after being dismissed by Mohammed Shami for 72.

With the bowlers doing their job well once again and India's batsmen standing up to the task of building a sizable lead, India finished the day with their nose ahead as Pujara, remained unbeaten on 40.

I emphasise slowly. The 2.17 run rate that they crawled along at yesterday has drawn plenty of attention; no Australian team has batted at a slower clip in the first innings of a Test in this country since 1990.

The tourists boasted a 166-run lead at stumps on Saturday, having reached 151-3 in their second innings.
