At Stumps on Day Three, India were 360-6 in response to Australia?s 451 and still trail by 91 runs.
Pujara and Saha took India past 350 in the 126th over. This is what happened to Pat Cummins, whose repeated injuries constantly hurt his chances of making it to the Australian Test XI after that splendid debut he made against South Africa in 2011, where he returned with 6/79 in the second innings.
Resuming the day at 120-1, overnight batsman Murali Vijay (82), who shared a 102-run second-wicket partnership with Pujara, also looked in great form until he threw his wicket away by trying an ill-advised attempted lofted shot off Steve O'Keefe at the stroke of Lunch. Pujara has shown character and patience to reach this milestone.
It was similar with Rahane who looked very comfortable in the middle before he felt the need to upper-cut Cummins over the slip-cordon, only to edge the bowler to Wade.
However, one of the biggest talking point was Glenn Maxwell mocking Kohli by placing a hand on his shoulder after saving a boundary in a similar fashion that he did. Only 12 runs have been scored thus far in 9 overs. Cummins and Josh Hazlewood bent their backs throughout an absorbing day in which wickets and runs were hard to come by.
Down at the other end though Pujara was grafting his way to his eleventh Test century and endearing himself to India fans even more than he already has in a career that has been spent in the shadow of Kohli.
