In response to Australia’s score of 338, the visitors have posted 180 for four and will resume batting after lunch. The visitors began in a cautious manner with Cheteshwar Pujara and stand-in skipper Ajinkya Rahane taking a slow approach. After the dismissal of Rahane and Hanuma Vihari, India increased their momentum with the arrival of Rishabh Pant. Pat Cummins dismissed Rahane, and Josh Hazlewood registered the wicket of Vihari.
