1.23pm Great innings by Smith, and a great effort by Jadeja. Smith ends up with the fifth-highest score by a visiting captain in India. Australia bowled out for 451. This pitch seems more like Vizag than Rajkot so Australia have got a good score on. Kohli seen in the dressing room, lifting a bat to shadow-practise a little and see if he can bat at No. 4. We will be back soon

Jadeja to Smith, 1 run, OUT, full, on the pads, and Jadeja seems to have managed a run-out here. Let's make this five plus one for Jadeja. Dug out slightly wide of short fine leg. Rahul is a little slow, Smith wants to steal the second. The throw is off target, but Jadeja moves away from his station, collects the throw up the pitch, and with his back to the stumps he back-flicks onto the stumps
