4.17pm Kuldeep Yadav leads India off the field after having brought them right back in to the Test. India were looking at a world of pain when Australia ran away to 130 for 1, but this has been an amazing comeback. Australia's tail hung in to take them to 300 on an interesting pitch that has kept both quicks and spinners interested without really looking unplayable. India will have one over to play out before stumps. Be back soon

Kumar to Lyon, OUT, and the inswinger claims Lyon. An innings without any reviews comes to an end. India will have to bat for about four minutes this evening. This is actually a good shot for a No. 10. Bhuvneshwar swings it in, he clips it away late, but fails to keep this down, and Pujara takes a good catch diving forward at midwicket

NM Lyon c Pujara b Kumar 13 (36m 28b 2x4 0x6) SR: 46.42

Jadeja to Wade, OUT, how long do you keep Jadeja out of action? He gets one now, kissing the off stump of Wade. Wade tries the big sweep in front of square, but misses the ball. It looks like it is in the slot for the shot, but has it drifted away? It squeezes under the bat, and takes the top of off. Wade is filthy with himself after having batted so well. Gestures he should be playing straight. More so because there are just 18 minutes to go to stumps

MS Wade b Jadeja 57 (144m 125b 4x4 1x6) SR: 45.60
