India landed ahead of 98 runs for two wickets. The day started very well for Australia when Leon got Rahane caught by Matthew Wade at forward short leg. India then decided to send Pant over Hanuma Vihari in the batting order as the team knew that it would not be easy to stick to this wicket as well as a combination of right and left handed batsmen at the crease would help.
Pant took a cautious approach for the first 35 balls but then hit a six and three fours at long on, using the moves against Leon. Tim Paine changed the end of Leon after this but Pant hit two more sixes over Long Off and Long On.
Pujara also hit two fours on this off-spinner. Pant has so far hit eight fours and three sixes in his innings. Pant, however, was lucky with a personal score of three and 56 off Leon’s ball when Penn dripped his catches.
