“Going to have to come adult with a devise to fight Jadeja though we’ve worked on that and you’ll substantially see it tomorrow we would think,” Lehmann pronounced after a penultimate day’s proceedings.
“They’ve got to trust in what they are doing as a organisation and a integrate of good balls like tonight that can occur in a diversion of cricket. For us it’s a good challenge. The plea for a organisation is to put on a integrate of partnerships and unequivocally get forward of a game.”
Jadeja would demeanour to feat a footmarks, something that has given him a satisfactory volume of success as he corroborated adult his fifer in a initial innings with 2/6 in 3.2 overs.
“It was a good round that got Warner in a end. If they play 10 of those so be it. But we’ve got to cope with it as best as we can and come adult with a devise and we’ve finished a lot of use in those conditions, so I’m unequivocally assured they can do a pursuit and see how they go. It’ll be a good plea for them,” Lehmann said.
Left disturbed to save a third Test, Lehman hoped his boys will replicate a innings played by Pujara and Saha on a final day,
“Obviously we’ve got to save a diversion and worry about tomorrow first. It’s a box of apparently requesting ourselves many like Pujara and Saha did today,” Lehmann said.
Showering regard on Pujara, a Aussie manager said: “He’s unequivocally trained and played unequivocally well. That’s because he is a category player. He bats for a prolonged duration of time. His acclimatisation rate from 50 to 100 and 100 to 150 are flattering high. When he gets in, he likes to go on with it. That’s a plea for a bowling group. To find a approach to get him out early.”

“Once a round gets a small bit softer it plays flattering good so there’s no genuine demons in a track. You’ve got to ready for all scenarios here in India, as you’ve seen a wickets start to wear on day four, day five, this has been a unequivocally normal Indian wicket, a good wicket.”
Aussies prepared for rigours of furloughed India in Dubai and Lehmann pronounced it’s now putting them into practice.
“It’s utterly a challenge. Preparing for Dubai that’s what we did and now it’s putting it into practice.”
With Pujara and Saha personification with pinnacle patience, Australia were done to play as many as 210 overs.
There was many effort for a tip 4 bowlers with left-arm spinner Steve O’Keefe bowling a record 77 overs in India, a many by an Aussie here.
“I consider captain’s call obviously. We did pronounce about it, chopping and changing a small bit. The diversion was always on a knife’s corner so we always wish your best spinners going,” he said.
“And we chopped and altered a small bit, substantially could have bowled a few some-more overs though we suspicion a spinners toiled unequivocally tough as good so that’s a call a captain creates out there and unequivocally happy with that.
“When we play 210 overs, we don’t consider that’s happened too mostly and India do that good they bat prolonged durations of time here in India. If anything it heightens a initial innings where we indispensable to bat a small bit longer.
