The Gabba series finale hangs in the balance as the visitors dig their heels in over a requirement to complete a second hard quarantine after initially isolating for 14 days when they arrived in Australia a year ago.

Groundsmen at the Sydney Cricket Ground will need to know by Friday if they have to set up a backup pitch as India threaten to boycott the fourth Test at The Gabba.

At this stage though CA is yet to receive a formal complaint from the BCCI or field any official request to move the test. "I missed out in the first two Tests obviously and came back today and scored some runs and helped I guess put us in a decent position".

Asked whether he was increasingly looking at himself as a genuine all-rounder in Test cricket over the last year or year-and-a-half, Jadeja said: "It's not about the last 12 or 18 months, but whenever I get an opportunity, I am keen on contributing with the bat and the ball".

Speaking at the toss on Thursday, Paine declared his team is "happy to play anywhere, any time".

She said it would be the same protocols that governed AFL and Suncorp Super Netball players and officials previous year.

"Whatever happens off the field between the boards is out of our control".

"The inspiration came when we played golf in the Cathedral Cup, there was a red team versus a blue team".

Brief scores: Australia 338 & 213/6 dec (Marnus Labuschagne 73, Steve Smith 81, Cameron Green 84; Navdeep Saini 2-54, R Ashwin 2-95) lead India 244 (Shubman Gill 58, Cheteshwar Pujara 50, Rishabh Pant 36; Pat Cummins 4-29) by 406 runs.

However, it is learnt that BCCI wants a written assurance on the matter.

The quarantine rules in Brisbane will restrict the players to just their hotel rooms after day's play.

The former captain added: "The Queensland government is fully entitled to protect its people".

3rd Test between India and Australia will undergo in Sydney from 7th January 2021.

Returning to Australia squad for the third time and finally getting to play after overcoming concussion-related issues, Australia's debutant opener Will Pucovski says he was prepared for a barrage of short balls from the Indian bowlers.

"You could have a situation where the ball goes into the crowd".
