Jai Hind, Says Virat Kohli After 137 Run Win Over Australia in Third Test at Melbourne

Australia's top six may have struggled to make over 300 runs but opposition teams are piling on the runs, meaning Australia has only claimed three wins in Tests this season.

The pace attack has rightly been gaining the accolades from all corners with several former players and pundits terming it as the best that India have ever produced in its history.

Paine wouldn't be drawn on what changes might be made.

While Kohli led India from the front throughout the year, bowlers' contribution was no less impressive in their improved overseas show.

With a bowling attack that can get 20 wickets in any conditions, Pujara's role becomes even more crucial reckons Kohli. "But first things first, we will look to finish the job early tomorrow". "I think that confidence that is seen is because of them (bowlers) and he is embracing that very well", Kohli reasoned.

But only a monsoon can save Australia now at 8-258 and 141 behind, with Virat Kohli's side needing only two wickets on the final day to secure the Border-Gavaskar trophy and head to Sydney 2-1 up. We've got to keep backing them (our players), our guys are trying their guts out.

"They want to play. everyone else would be on our back (if they are rested from upcoming one-dayers)". I've said from day one it's going to be a real arm-wrestle the Test series and it feels like that. "We've got the best group of players available to us at the moment and we'll pick the best combination out of that group that we think will win this last Test".

A third game will also be played with the San Siro's "curva" section - the part of the ground popular with Inter's "ultras" - closed.

"Hats off to the whole team for sticking together, believing in themselves and being obsessed".

Mayank Agarwal and Rishabh Pant deserve special mention. His composure, his intent and belief, it was a huge boost for us. There is always little discussions around the batting order. We will be collectively better for it.

"So if you lose a toss and the opposition decide to bat and you have to try and knock them over, our new ball bowlers in Starc and Hazlewood are averaging 47 and 40 with a new ball - that's not good enough". We were walking in thinking that we could build a partnership.

He took his time and registered his slowest career century.

"So getting that management right and staying true to the management, so we can have him (Cummins) fit and firing - we've got to be strong with that because there's got to be a lot of people with different opinions as to whether they should play every game", he said.

The left-armer, Hazlewood and Cummins are expected to be on restricted duties in comings days but there is now nothing to suggest they will be forced to skip the fourth Test.

"It depends on the pitch".
