India vs Australia: Pujara, Rahane give befitting reply to Steve Smith & team
Indian team has come back strong after the Tea break on the third day of the Bengaluru Test, more credit to KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane for their patient knocks.Pujara at 79 and Rahane at 40 are at the crease at the end of the day's play. After the unfortunate dismissal of Virat Kohli and then losing Ravindra Jadeja soon after, India were in trouble at that very moment. But Rahane and Pujara held their head and built up a solid partnership of 92 runs. KL Rahul, also played really well on his homeground for well struck and deserving 50. India now lead Australia by 126 runs and showed intent throughout the day today and thus managed to make a comeback into the match, this session was the most successful for the hosts as they didn't lose any wicket. Australian bowlers showed character and bowled with intensity and accuracy, maintaining their line and length, but all credit to Indian batters as they stayed there with patience. Hazlewood clinched 3 important wickets. Steve o Keefe took one, whereas the star bowler of 1st innings Nathan Lyon had to satisfy for none. Now the game is open for both the teams.
