That's a day that belonged to Australia on the whole. They were 187 behind India when play started and went on to go 97 in front thanks to some excellent rear-guard action by Mitchell Johnson, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon and Josh Hazlewood. Of course, Smith was there at the crease and went on to get to his century before getting out.
That is a substantial lead, especially when it's considered that it could well have been India's lead of 70-80 runs when Brad Haddin had got out. Poor tactics cost India dear after that.
Still, India is not totally out of this; they have chiselled off 71 runs from the lead for the loss of Murali Vijay. Their task is to bat the day tomorrow. Even then, with just four bowlers at their disposal, it won't be enough but anything less than that may not be enough.
I am out of here for now but will be back tomorrow. Glad to have your company throughout the day and hope to see you tomorrow. Also hope to see a lot more people in the stands at the Gabba. Ciao!
Two slips, two gullies, a short-leg and a leg-gully for Johnson bowling to Pujara. A tap into the covers, followed by one that's left behind. And then he defends off the front foot back to the bowler.
Leaves alone the fourth ball before Johnson decides to go round the stumps. Makes Pujara play at it but he defends it back to the bowler. And he does that off the last ball of the day to end it with a maiden.
India 1/71 in 23 at stumps, 26 behind.
And here's another unofficial drinks break for India. Wasn't too different when Australia batted. The umpires have been quite lenient in this game.
Johnson will bowl the last over of the day.
