Adelaide: Jan 27, 2012

 

Australia remained in complete command with a massive 382 runs lead at the end of third day’s play of the final Test against India, despite Virat Kohli’s maiden Test ton and three quick wickets gave India something to cheer for at the Adelaide Oval.

 

India’s first innings folded up for 272, in reply to Australia’s 604 for seven, shortly after tea with Kohli scoring a valiant 116. Kholi also became the first Indian batsmen to score a century on the current tour.

 

Peter Siddle was the pick of Australian bowlers with five for 49 while Ben Hilfenhaus bagged three for 62.

 

India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin (2-24) then struck twice to remove Australian openers Ed Cowan (10) and David Warner (10) while pace spearhead Zaheer Khan (1-24) dismissed Shaun Marsh to leave the hosts at 50 for three in the second innings at stumps. Ricky Ponting (1) and skipper Michel Clarke (9) were at the crease.

 

Despite a poor start in the second innings, Australia remained on top of the Test. They also didn’t ask India to bat again despite the fact that visitors fell 132 runs short of avoiding the follow-on.

 

With bowlers tiring and two days in hand, Clarke decided to built on the first innings lead of 332 runs before setting a stiff target for the tourists, who are probably staring at another 0-4 whitewash, their second in seven months.
