Australia quicks need to bowl straighter, says Hazlewood

Crucially, Australia will have to bat fourth in this match. No harm done. Pujara and Rahane then brought up the 100-run stand. Australia are losing grip on the Test with every run India is scoring.

Australia are 29/1 after 6 overs, need 159 more runs to win.

In 2001, No.3 VVS Laxman and No.6 Rahul Dravid put on 376 for the fifth wicket - the highest partnership of the series and the third highest partnership in Indian Test history - as the hosts reached 7 (dec)-657. A tie? Any of those outcomes seemed plausible. India lead by 145 runs now. Five-for for the Australian and India were reeling with a lead of only 156. The key man for Australia was Peter Handscomb, the last remaining member of the top six, who had used his feet well and went to tea on 19. Renshaw is travelling India with national team for very first time but already showed his brilliant skills and he has also the capability to play under pressure. While the first two session garner wickets, the last one favours the batsmen.

The Rahane dismissal was arguably the turning point of the session, even more so with umpire Nigel Llong initially giving Rahane not out but after an Australian review, the decision was overturned much to delight of Steve Smith and co. The loss of that review nearly certainly prevented Shaun Marsh using one five overs later.

Out! Rapped on the pads of Shaun Marsh and given out by the umpire.

Rahul bails out just as Lyon was sending one down - the ball spins in and hits the stumps and Smith and the other Aussies are, like, what the hell? A review would have been futile: he couldn't have been plumber if he'd been wearing a Super Mario costume. India's lead extended to 151. Renshaw out on 5 off Ishant. The Mumbai batsman fell to an astute call by Australian skipper Steven Smith who chose to call for the review after the umpire had given a not out decision to a loud lbw appeal from Starc.

Companies Snap Should Snap Up With Its $28 Billion
Snap's secret weapon, according to the company and some analysts, is that its users are younger and incredibly engaged. Snap said in its regulatory filing last month it took in $404 million in revenue a year ago but lost $515 million.

Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin took the first wicket when he bowled David Warner for 33 after Australia had added 12 runs to their overnight 40 without loss in reply to India's 189.

India will not be content with their lead just yet but the wicket will be very tough to bat on from here on in and anything over 150 will be a challenge to chase down for Australia.

Starc was the first to strike in the 85th over, hooping back the second new ball to trap Ajinkya Rahane lbw for 52.

In between whenever, Pujara got the short ball, he pulled with power, whenever one was tossed up slightly more than eyebrow- level, he danced down the track and in between picked up the ones and twos to keep the scoreboard ticking. Karun Nair, Pujara and R Ashwin followed in the next eight balls.

That window was widened by the breezy start from the Indian openers, KL Rahul and Abhinav Mukund adding 38 in 10 overs.

The tensions flared up when fast bowler Ishant Sharma beat Smith a couple of times with the ball keeping low.
