07:15 IST: Hello and welcome to the live updates from the Day 3 of the second Test between India and Australia.

Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane, the skipper and his deputy, helped India recover from early blows as the visitors were 172/3 at stumps on day two of the second Test against Australia in Perth on Saturday. India still trail Australia by 154 runs with seven wickets in hand. Resuming at 277/6 on a difficult pitch, Australian captain Tim Paine and Pat Cummins put on a half-century stand for the seventh wicket, before the team was bowled out for 326. Australia did well to get the openers out cheaply, with a wicket on each before and after lunch, leaving the visitors in trouble at 8/2. This led to Cheteshwar Pujara and Kohli putting their heads down to do some damage control.

Pujara as usual anchored himself to the crease, while Kohli checked his aggression in the face of some very tight, disciplined bowling from Australia. By tea, India had managed to trudge to 70/2 in 32.0 overs without losing another wicket, however, the ball was still clearly in Australia’s court. 

Ironically, it was only after Pujara fell, with the score reading 82/3, that India managed to actually push back against the relentless Australian bowlers.  A brilliant counter-attack by Rahane eased the pressure on the Indian captain.
