End of over 101 (6 runs) Australia 268/9

Mishra becomes the sixth India bowler to take a five-for on debut and India now have a 201-run cushion.

To nobody's surprise, India have decided to not enforce the follow-on.

Billy Gane writes in to say: "Seriously; is anybody else out there sick of the "slow death" finger of umpire Koetzen? Can't we get back to the umpy being a non-entity and letting the players shine?"
