Virat Kohli's maiden Test ton and three quick wickets gave India something to cheer for, but Australia remained in command with a massive 382 runs lead after the third day's play of the fourth and the final cricket Test at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday.

 

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.
