With the lead of 166 runs, Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane resumed and batted brilliantly to build a sensational partnership.

Marsh has spent more than two hours at the crease and negotiated a testing final dozen overs in the company of Adelaide-born Travis Head, who was Australia's top scorer in first innings with 72.

Australia ended the day on 104/4 needing 219 more runs for an unlikely victory as India will be confident of cleaning them up on the final day of the Test.

India's second innings was delayed due to rain interruptions either side of lunch. Vijay fell to Mitchell Starc for 18 and Rahul (44 off 67 balls) was dismissed just before tea by Josh Hazlewood.

Arthur calls on beaten Pakistan to toughen up for Tests
The series saw New Zealand win the first Test , while Pakistan staged a comeback in the second to level things. "It was fantastic. However, that likely preference may result in limited involvement for the bowling stars of the third test victory over Pakistan .

The national selectors picked a squad for the first and second Tests and had hoped stability would help but there is likely to be much to debate this week in a summer where the ramifications of the ball-tampering saga and the absence of suspended pair Steve Smith and David Warner are being felt. "If we capitalize on that, we will be in a very good place in this match".

With a hundred and a fifty this Test, Pujara became only the third Indian to reach two fifty-plus scores in the same Test in Australia.

Shane Warne, who was doing commentary for the host broadcasters Fox Cricket, was calling the over and just before the last ball, the legendary leg-spinner predicted that if Lyon pitched the ball on the right line and length, he might just a wicket to end the over. The final five wickets for India fell in a heap, but the target for Australia was 323, which might prove to be enough on a tired surface.

"The way Pujara played in the first innings was the blueprint for this wicket", Head, who was born in Adelaide, told reporters. "I think the bowlers did a wonderful job to contain and continue to put pressure on them tonight". India had started the day with the loss of three wickets but a superb bowling display saw the visitors being skittled out for 307.
