Hazlewood's triple strike leaves India reeling

  • India 122-4 at break, lead by 35 runs
  • Australia make 276 in first innings
  • Jadeja takes 6-63 for India

Kohli reviewed the decision immediately and despite several replays, it could not be determined if he had hit the ball before it struck his pad and the umpire's decision was upheld.

The day started with Australia resuming on 237-6, a lead of 48, and the tourists added 32 runs to their overnight tally before losing their last four wickets for seven runs.

India were looking to race through Australia's lower order as quickly as possible but left-handers Matthew Wade and Mitchell Starc kept them at bay for the first 45 minutes of the session.

Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin bowled over the wicket trying to hit the rough created by the bowlers' footmarks, a tactic which had brought his Australian counterpart Lyon 8-50 in the first innings.

The Australians dealt well enough with his threat before Starc perished for 26, holing out to a brilliant catch from Jadeja at the deep mid-wicket boundary to trigger a collapse.

Kohli, criticised on Sunday for giving Jadeja less than half the number of overs as Ashwin, finally brought the left-armer on in the ninth over of the day.

Jadeja trapped Wade leg before for 40 and repeated the feat on the next ball to Lyon to complete his seventh five-wicket haul in tests.

Hazlewood denied Jadeja (6-63) his hat-trick but soon became the 28-year-old's sixth victim of the innings.
