    Well we went close but the Aussies are all out for 276 giving us a lead of 87 runs

    Plenty of encouraging signs in the pitch for the quicks and spinners

    We have a first innings lead of 87.

    We will need to bowl well again but I would much rather be in our shoes than theirs.

    Lunch on day 3 and India are off to a good start at 0/38 and only trail by 49 runs

    Aussies need wickets straight after lunch

    We got 1 but we need a lot more. They are just 17 behind now.

    It's time for O'Keefe.

    Tea on day 3 and Australia are well on top !!

    India 4/122 and lead by 35 so in affect they are 4/35

    The Aussies won't want to chase anymore than 200 to win, Even 15 will be a challenge I reckon

    Hazlewood the pick of the bowlers with 3/37 from 11 overs

    India are 126 ahead at stumps with 6 wickets in hand.

    It looks as though we will have to bat very well to win.

    Josh Hazlewood (6/67) has torn through the Indian batsmen after Smith took the new ball

    India were 4/238 with Rahane and Pujara going really well with a 118 run partnership and are now all out for 274

    Australia only need 188 to win but it will be a huge challenge, This pitch has variable bounce and turn...It's doing some very funny things

    Australia in trouble at tea on day 4 and it looks like the Indians will win this one

    We are 6/101 and still need 87 to win

    The pressure will be on Australia in the third test, the Indians will have momentum with them.

    The Aussies were underdogs going into the first test and we smashed them, I hope we can do it again.
