Aussies 6-236 in SCG Test after collapse

Share

Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav shared five wickets between them and were at their persistent best across the two and something sessions that were bowled before bad light set in.

At the interval, Pujara was 181 not out with Rishabh Pant unbeaten on 27, sharing a 60-run partnership at the Sydney Cricket Ground as India continued its tried and tested approach this series of building successive partnerships to grind Australia's bowling attack down.

Paine was in good spirits despite a taxing 167.2 overs in the field, defending his bowlers and answering a journalist's phone that rang during the media conference.

Chesteshwar Pujara's master-class of Australian conditions continued as he reached his highest score outside India and lifted the tourists into a dominant position of 389-5 at lunch on day two of the fourth and final test against Australia on Friday. Australia had the second new ball in hand and were lucky to get the wicket of Hanuma Vihari through an error of judgment from the TV umpire.

Unless Australia win, India will claim a first-ever series victory Down Under since they began touring here in 1947-48.

Spinner Jadeja also accounted for Marsh, who must surely have exhausted his supply of Test recalls after departing for eight, having left his bat hanging to gift Ajinkya Rahane the simplest of catches at first slip.

But that didn't happen as Paine was playing the waiting game which suited India perfectly. Pujara went past 150 but failed to score a double-century.

Siddle, 34, played his last ODI against Sri Lanka in January 2010 and his inclusion will allow Australia to rest the pace trio of Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood after a long test series against India.

Steve Smith and David Warner, banned for a year for their roles in the Newlands ball-tampering scandal, will not be available for selection until April. It was a chastening session for Australia, where they lost the plot on a pretty flat track. The ordeal is not over yet as Kohli might not enforce the follow-on to complete the process of mental disintegration.

As we happily watch the Indians pile on the agony on the Australians in this series, let us revisit some of the mental integration the Indians were subjected to in the past in Australia which would compose the present reversal of fortune more ecstatic.
