Pujara double ton puts India in charge

Jadeja took highest five wickets where Yadav took three wickets in the first innings for India. Day 5 is going to be all about survival for Australia batsmen.

As Pujara and Saha put Australia's attack to the sword on a benign pitch at JSCA Stadium, an understandably frustrated Hazlewood upped his verbal game to unsettle the set batsmen. There was no need to take risks and the Indian duo did precisely the same.

Australia's first innings was when it all started to go wrong in Ranchi, according to coach Darren Lehmann. To make matters worse for Steve Smith and co, Nathan Lyon had a genuine shout in the next over but with the umpire looking unmoved, the Australians could not even review the decision as they had used up all their DRS reviews. Against the reverse swing, he ensured he got the bat down in time and more importantly, in front of the pat. The left-arm spinner looked a huge threat and beat Matt Renshaw couple of times, and managed to get through Warner's defense to send him back to the pavilion. The other three combined for 160 overs, taking eight wickets and conceding 2.55 runs per over. Australia played on his patience, hoping he would step out and try to score more runs, mirroring Murali Vijay.

Pujara and Saha's outstanding effort ensured that India comfortably ascended into a 152-run before the innings was declared on 603/9. He added 32 runs for the third wicket with Virat Kohli, 51 runs with Ajinkya Rahane for the fourth wicket and 44 runs with Karun Nair, who once again lost his woodwork to an incoming delivery, for the fifth wicket.

While I wouldn't say it's a must win for Pep, it's certainly a "must not lose" for Liverpool . Liverpool finished eighth in the Premier League and without a trophy last season.

He cut Lyon, lofted Keefe, and sliced Hazelwood for boundaries. Lyon and O'Keefe were hit cleanly for sixes over their heads.

The hosts' first essay consumed 210 overs, the most numbers of overs that India have ever batted against Australia in a single innings. It is already causing alarm for Australia, who have four southpaws in the top seven compared to India's zero. With India seemingly in control in the second session, Cummins did the damage with the new ball by dismissing Kohli and Rahane to open up the lower middle order but Pujara stood firm to keep Australia at bay. Jadeja has a rough and a whole lot of lefties to bowl at. There was a puff of dust as the ball turned to breach is defence -Warner could only see his stumps in an utter mess. That was the final action of the day, and India walked off the field full of confidence, and will start the final day as favourites to in the match.

Follwoing the departure of the centurions, Jadeja went hammer and tongs against the Aussie bowling, scoring an unbeaten 54 runs of 55 balls. Two more left-handers in the form of Shaun Marsh and Mathew Wade are to follow him. Don't forget R Ashwin.
