Australian fans took the opportunity to slam Kohli for what they deemed as aggressive on-field behaviour.

At lunch on the fourth day, the home side were 190 for four in their second innings, an overall advantage of 233 runs.

However, in the post-lunch session, India came roaring back with Mohammed Shami taking his fourth five-wicket haul in Tests. Australia suffered a shocking batting collapse, losing four wickets for eight runs early in the second session.

Shami sent Paine (37), Aaron Finch (25) and Usman Khawaja (72) in quick succession with Jasprit Bumrah chipping in with the wicket of Pat Cummins (1).

A crucial 36-run stand between Josh Hazlewood (17 not out) and Mitchell Starc (14) helped Australia reach 243, despite losing their last six wickets for 51 runs.

However, at the time of writing this, Australia were still in the driver’s seat, as India were struggling at 15 for 2 at tea, chasing 287 runs to win the Test.
