Writers Analysis:  At one time Australia was in trouble when it lost its 4 wickets at the team score of 140 runs but it’s the partnership of S Smith and Glen M that took Australia pass to a very good score. If India could have managed to get Glen M or even S Smith cheaply, that would have helped India a lot. This total was going to be very challenging for India’s team and they need to bat properly to avoid conceding any more lead to Australia in this crucial Test match.
