  • Watch Washington Sundar Smashes A Glorious

India were 4/0 before the final session of the play was suspended early due to rain on the fourth day on Monday. "It is hard to know obviously with the rain coming, we are certainly not weatherman and don't know that it is coming, so you have to play the game as you sort of see it as well, so I don't know", he said.

But the hosts continued batting when play resumed in gloomy conditions in the evening session, adding a further 51 runs for three wickets.

Sundar who also took three wickets in the first innings added 123 runs for the seventh wicket with Shardul Thakur (67).

In a series that has produced a string of unlikely Indian heroes, Mohammed Siraj, the de facto pace leader in only his third Test, finished with an innings haul of five for 73 on Monday, taking the wind out of Australia's sails as they tried to quicken their scoring.

Smith said the match was well-poised, and typical of a series that as "ebbed and flowed" throughout.

If they do do that I think they might use Rishabh Pant up the order again, like they did in Sydney, because if it does get down to a run chase and (India are) behind the (required) run rate early on.

"Today a few balls shot up so tomorrow it's going to be case of hitting the right areas and letting the natural variation of a day five wicket do its work, and hopefully we can hang on to the chances".

'For us (the key) is being patient, not searching too much. Letting it happen, ' Smith said.

Rain is forecast to interrupt play on the final two days.

He also expected all-rounder Cameron Green to use his height and the unpredictable bounce to get his first wicket in test cricket.

Australia openers David Warner and Marcus Harris faced an awkward 20 minutes late in the day but closed on 21-0.

Smith was one of Siraj's victims, out for 55 when he gloved a catch to Rahane after a ball pinged steeply off the wicket. But replays clearly confirmed the dismissal.

However, Siraj got his man with a rising ball that struck Smith on the glove and looped into the hands of gully and Green - who had survived a sharp return catch - eventually departed when he edged Thakur to second slip.

Australia captain Tim Paine scored a quick 27 before he was caught behind attempting a hook off Thakur just before the tea interval.
