Australia force draw in third test against India

INDvAUS DRS drama continues in Ranchi on Day 3 and Indian batsmen get MASSIVE benefit out of

It took Pujara an Indian-record 525 deliveries, eclipsing legend Rahul Dravid's 495 for his 270 against Pakistan at Rawalpindi in 2004.

With a minimum 540 deliveries to face, and already two down, the bottle of the Australian batting will be sorely tested. While Ishant was walking back to his run-up he had a verbal exchange with Australian skipper Steven Smith too.

Smith, the only two-time century maker on both sides, is averaging 87 and Renshaw is averaging 43 with a top score of 68.

Skipper Steve Smith will join Renshaw (7 not out) at the crease on day five and one expects that partnership will have to be a long one if Australia is to save itself.

Having turned the tide yesterday, riding on Cheteshwar Pujara and Wriddhiman Saha's marathon partnership, India were in contention for an unassailable lead in the series.

Kohli, who injured his shoulder while fielding on the opening day, did not take the field for the rest of Australia's innings but batted at his usual number four position.

210 Overs batted by India - their fourth-longest Test innings and the second longest in last 55 years. Innately aggressive and intimidating, Australia strives to set the tone and they are hard to knock off when in the ascendency. It's comfortably the most important innings of his short career.

"All our bowlers bowled really well, but according to me it was Jadeja who was the standout performer", Kohli said.

There has been some bad blood between the two sides in the ongoing Test series between India and Australia and on day three of the third Test, there was another incident that caught the eye.

"That's one of the things we've been talking about - being resilient and sticking out the tough times". Jadeja, operating over the wicket, pitched the ball just about enough on leg, which Smith tried to pad. "Roles always reverse its not a big factor for us".

Middle-order batsman Peter Handscomb stood tall in front of his wicket to help Australia draw the third Test at the JSCA International Complex, Ranchi that concluded on Monday.

The tourists eventually reached 204 for 6 at stumps on the fifth and final day, after the hosts made a mammoth 603-9 declared in their first innings in Ranchi. India went into tea at 303 for four with Karun Nair (23) accompanying Pujara. The last time they overcame a significant first-innings deficit for a stalemate in Asia was in 2011 when the late Phillip Hughes and Michael Clarke scored centuries in Galle to keep Sri Lanka at bay. "We both use the same SG ball, just got to do what you can with it".

"I think the hardness of the ball was a big factor", Kohli said.

Amidst heated environment on day 4 of the 3rd test match, a very amusing incident took place.
