Jadeja strikes after Pujara and Saha deflate Australia

  • Pujara first Indian to face 500 balls in an innings
  • Saha registers third test century
  • Australia lose Warner, Lyon before close

Once past his hundred, he too went for quick runs and fell to Steve O'Keefe who bowled a staggering 77 overs for his three wickets as Australia endured a tough day on the field.

Down the order, Jadeja clobbered a couple of sixes in his brisk unbeaten 54 to rub salt to Australia's injuries, celebrating his fifty by twirling his bat like a sword.

Home skipper Virat Kohli called his batsmen in as soon as they crossed the 600-run mark and unleashed his spinners on Australia to drive home the advantage.

The four-test series is tied 1-1 with Dharamsala hosting the final match from Saturday.
