That gave India an unexpected 152-run lead over Australia's 451, setting up a fascinating final day.

However, Jadeja had some other plans as he bowled Warner first and then in the last over of the day, struck once again to take the wicket of night-watchman Nathon Lyon to put the hosts in the driver's seat.

For India, left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 4/54 while off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and pacer Ishant Sharma took a wicket each.

In the press conference after the end of day's play, India opener Murali Vijay played down the incident - stating that the Indian team are now focused on the match. "We have given our best here, and as long as we keep doing that, I am sure we will get ourselves into winning positions". The bowlers then went all out as Australia were tottering at 23 for 2 when stumps were drawn.

Along with Pujara at stumps is Karun Nair with 13.

Cummins, who struck twice in the afternoon session, got Rahane caught behind and Hazlewood bowled Nair with a attractive reverse swinging delivery in the final session.

Ajinkya Rahane came to support Pujara, who continued his patient game braving the pace attack of Cummins and Hazelwood. Sharma exulted with an animated celebration as he capped the brilliant over with another nasty blow to new batsman Shaun Marsh with a ball that hit the batsman's ribs. "Hats off to selectors to go with him".

Australia batted through the final day to force a draw in the third Test against India in Ranchi.

Capitan Kohli came to bat at his usual number four after going through a small practice session in the morning. "Resilient", Australian skipper Steve Smith said in the post-match ceremony. He hit Lyon and Keefe each once over the straight boundary.

Smith, who began his innings at the start of play, knew his side had to bat deep into the final session of the match to ensure the series remained level at 1-1 ahead of the Dharamsala decider starting on Saturday. The star batsman had injured his right shoulder after an awkward fall while fielding during Australia's innings on Thursday and stayed off the field for 400 minutes before taking crease. "We have practiced different scenarios in Dubai and you need to do that when coming to India", said Australian coach Darren Lehmann.
