Cheteshwar Pujara breaks this 90-year-old record

Earlier, Lyon (4-178) got the only breakthrough of the morning session when he had Hanuma Vihari caught to end the 101-run partnership with Pujara midway through the session after India resumed this morning at 303-4.

Aaron Finch retains his captaincy despite being dropped with Mitchell Marsh for the fourth test against India now ongoing at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Vihari added three to his overnight score of 39, before edging a sweep shot off Lyon onto his upper-arm and was caught by Marnus Labuschagne at bat-pad for 42.

"Obviously when you bowl for two days the body gets exhausted, but their body language was really good, they were pushing themselves and trying their level best". He has already scored his second Test ton and a couple of 90s to go with it. Look he is someone who could play a lot of Test cricket for India across formats.

Jadeja too started getting aggressive in his approach and batted freely.

Once again laying the platform for a sizeable first innings score, Pujara took his tally in the four-match series to 458 runs with the prospect of more to follow.

Skipper Virat Kohli finally made a decision to declare the innings with 622 runs on the board with the loss of seven wickets.

Ravindra Jadeja chipped in with a lively 81 in a 204-run stand with Pant - a record seventh wicket partnership at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Harris scored an unbeaten 19 runs while Khawaja survived on the score of 5 runs, despite being dropped on zero.

He worked hard to make his second Test 50 in only three innings by caressing a Mitchell Starc delivery through the covers for four. Conditions are glorious for batting.

Khawaja on Friday was named in Australia's 14-man squad for this month's three-match series against India, with Chris Lynn, D'Arcy Short and Travis Head all axed from the side who faced South Africa.

India has nearly ensured they do not lose this match.

The 30-year-old's centuries in Adelaide and Melbourne went a long way to giving India a 2-1 series lead and there was relief as well as admiration in the standing ovation he received from the crowd when he finally headed back to the Member's Stand.

Most probably Virat Kohli will retain the Border-Gavaskar trophy.
