They crumbled for 112 with Ravi Ashwin becoming the fourth bowler to claim six wickets - the first time this had happened in Test history.

The Indian Skipper went on to the backfoot and ducked under it safely.

Speaking at a news conference Monday as India's players surprised observers by taking a rest day three days out from the start of the first test, Pujara said Ashwin had been working hard to conquer his record of under-performance in Australian conditions. India have won just five of 44 Tests they played in Australia over seven decades is indicative of the scale of the task Virat Kohli faces if he is to inscribe his name in the honour roll marked "great Test captains".

"It suits me because I'm a batsman who likes to play off the back foot", he said. But, the Men In Blue bowlers looked in good rhythm as they bowled their heart out.

"Most of our batters are experienced enough so when we go out there we just trust our preparation and try to perform to the best of our ability". From verbal spats to MonkeyGate to finger gesture to brain-fade, it has all been part and parcel of India-Australia rivalry for a few decades now. "So we'll be looking to replicate that and test it against one of the best batting orders in the world".
