Now leading the series 2-1, India will hope to start their year on a positive note and silence their critics once and for all by putting up a dominant display on foreign soil. In reply, Australia are 122 for 1 at lunch on day three. The runs he conceded were largely irrelevant, with Australia reaching only 236 for 6, still trailing India by 386 runs.
Once again laying the platform for a sizeable first innings score, Pujara took his tally in the four-match series to 458 runs with the prospect of more to follow. Let's not forget the incredible contribution from Che Pujara who unfortunately was dismissed for 193. But, the unexpected hero was Rishabh Pant who remained not out on 159 which came off just 189 balls with the help of 15 fours and one six. "Mitch gives us another all-round option with his ability with both bat and ball".
This Indian think-tank have long believed that Kuldeep is an excellent attacking option in Tests and the only reason he has not played more is that, like others who bowl the same style, tend to leak runs when they don't get it right.
So dominant were they that Pant and Ravindra Jadeja stitched together a record 204-run seventh wicket partnership in Sydney, leaving Australia's bowlers exhausted and dispirited.
After the gameplay on the Day 2 of the fourth Test match between India and Australia ended at the Sydney Cricket Ground, the visitors had a firm grip in the contest.
At the Oval Test past year, Pant became the first Indian wicket-keeper to score a century in the fourth innings of a Test match.
Pujara's nearly chanceless innings - he was dropped in the slips on 192 - featured 22 fours and took his tally over the series to 521 runs at an average of 74.42.

Paine became the spinner's third victim when a peach of a delivery clean bowled the Australia captain through his gaping gate for five.
Mayank Agarwal contributed 77 at the top of the order, putting on 116 for the second wicket alongside Pujara, as India closed in an authoritative position of 303 for four.
But that didn't happen as Paine was playing the waiting game which suited India perfectly.
Pujara had brought up his 150 with a boundary through covers before Vihari looked on in disbelief when his review of a catch failed to save him despite replays seeming inconclusive.
Channelling the man he resembles when batting, David Warner, Harris did not let the bowlers stifle him. The Australians had a potent bowling attack with the presence of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins, and Nathan Lyon.
Australia's misfiring batsmen, by contrast, have managed a single 100-plus partnership in the entire series.
