India 360/6 at stumps, trail Australia by 91 runs; Cheteshwar Pujara (130*), Murali Vijay (82); Pat Cummins (4/59).
Cheteshwar Pujara and Wriddhiman Saha have denied Australia a chance to end Day 3 on a high as they remain unbeaten at stumps.
While Pujara was, by far, the standout batsman from India, Vijay and Rahul's contribution at the top has made sure India keep their hopes alive to get past Australia's 451-run total.
For Australia, Pat Cummins, who was playing his first Test since 2011, was the pick of the bowler as scalped 4 wickets conceding 59 runs.
While Pat Cummins threatened to derail Indian innings by scalping four wickets (4/59), Pujara remained solid to keep alive India's hopes of surpassing Australia's 451-run total.
Move to Indian captain, Kohli, who was struggling with the shoulder injury, could not break the series of low scores in the Test series.
Murali Vijay (82) and KL Rahul (67) made some solid contributions to India's total. Cheteshwar Pujara's unbeaten hundred was India's guiding force.
