The day started off with Jadeja's brilliant spell which put a smile on the face for the Indian fans, but it quickly turned into a frown when Kohli got out for just 15 runs. But Pujara and Rahane put up a brilliant 93-run partnership and helped India past 200 for the first time in the series.
India regained a semblance of control on the third day of the second Test at Bengaluru as Ravindra Jadeja ran through the Australian tail at the start of the day to restrict Australia to 276 before half-centuries from KL Rahul and Cheteshwar Pujara took India to 213/4, giving them a lead of 126.
Brief Scores:India 189 all out and 213/4 in 72 overs (Pujara 79*, Rahul 51; Hazlewood 3/57) against Australia 276 all out in 122.4 overs (Marsh 66, Renshaw 60; Jadeja 6/63, Ashwin 2/84)
How to start a Monday morning? Ask Jadeja maybe! :)
