The four-Test series, which has been marred by a row between Virat Kohli and his opposite number Steve Smith, resumes in Ranchi on Thursday. After shocking the hosts in Pune, the visitors slumped to a 75-run loss in Bengaluru despite being in a commanding position at the half-way mark. The momentum now rests with Kohli's men, especially after Australia lost two key players - Mitchell Starc and Mitchell Marsh - through injuries. The Ranchi track is expected to turn and Smith and Co. will have to apply themselves a lot better than they did in Bengaluru. There is some good news for Australia. Off-spinner Nathan Lyon, who suffered a cracked-skin on his right index finger during the second Test, said he was confident of being part of the visitors' side in the third match.
