India go into lunch on day three of their second Test match against Australia with a lead of 163 runs.
The hosts are currently on 400-3 in Hyderabad, thanks largely to a phenomenal 370-run partnership between Murali Vijay (167) and Cheteshwar Pujara (204) - the fourth-highest pairing for any wicket for India in Test cricket.
However, Vijay was the first to fall from the duo after being caught by Ed Cowan off the bowling of Glenn Maxwell for the latter's first ever Test wicket.
It was not long before the tourists ended Pujara's spell at the crease, after James Pattinson's bowling led to Xavier Doherty pulling off a low catch.
