At 196-4 India was far way from the shores of safety. They needed 184 runs more to draw level with Australia's first innings score. Tendulkar's brilliance ended swiftly on day three and Australia sensed an opening when skipper MS Dhoni walked in and took guard. MSD didn't only take guard, he seized control of the match. He attacked Nathan Lyon from the start, Starc was smashed for three boundaries in an over and Henriques and Pattinson were biffed away for sixes. India ended day 3 firmly on top courtesy a blinder of an innings from MSD who brought up his maiden Test double. The blazing double makes Dhoni the only Indian wicket-keeper to cross the landmark in Tests.
