Pujara who scored 130 not out helped India whittle down the lead to 91 runs as the hosts reached 360/6 at stumps.

Centurion Cheteshwar Pujara's marathon effort helped India whittle down the lead to 91 runs as the hosts reached 360/6 at stumps on day three of the third cricket Test against Australia here on Saturday.

Pujara (130 not out) and wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha (18 not out) went undefeated after adding 32 runs for the seventh wicket when the umpires dislodged the bails for the day at the Jharkhand State Cricket Association Stadium here.

India lost the crucial wickets of Karun Nair (23) and Ravichandran Ashwin (3) in the final session, with pacer Pat Cummins emerging the wrecker-in-chief taking four for 59.
