Peter Handscomb faced 200 balls on the final day.
Led brilliantly by Shaun Marsh and Peter Handscomb, Australia has held on for a stunning draw in the third Test against India.
The pair shared a 199-run stand as the touring attack failed to take a wicket in either the morning or afternoon sessions. Be it opener Murali Vijay (82), skipper Virat Kohli (6), Ajinkya Rahane (14) or Nair (23), they were all dismissed after settling down.
First-innings centurion Glenn Maxwell only added two runs before falling in similar fashion, with Handscomb and Matthew Wade (9 not out) ultimately taking Australia to stumps on 6-204.

The match was originally scheduled for Saturday but was rescheduled after a fire broke out in the hotel where the Jharkhand team was put up.
India, in response, closed on 120 for one as Pat Cummins marked his return to Test cricket with the wicket of KL Rahul, who feathered behind to depart for a well-crafted 67.
Jadeja had his fifth when Lyon fended to silly point while the slow left armer executed a superb "no-look" run out of Josh Hazlewood to end Australia's innings as Smith, who struck 17 fours in his 361-ball knock, was denied the chance of reaching his double century. But will Dhoni's presence in the dressing room boost India's moral against the Aussies? You've got to let that go as quickly as you can. The stories of the day yesterday were Glenn Maxwell's maiden Test century, the continuation of Steve Smith's otherworldly form, and the return to Test bowling ranks of Pat Cummins - now nearly six years on from his last appearance in the baggy green.
"I'm proud of how the boys were able to stick it out today", he said.
