India still have a lot of batting to come. Another decent stand and handy contributions from the rest will probably see them bat Australia out of the game.
The hosts, on the other hand, need a few quick wickets as that is the only way they can get back into the contest.
India built a 166-run lead over Australia on the third day of an absorbing opening Test in Adelaide on Day 3.
