They looked to seal the series in Bengaluru with star spinner Nathan Lyons figures of 8/50 but India did a turnaround with a century-plus second innings partnership by Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane. “When we came over to India, we were under no illusion that we were going to potentially get some difficult wickets to play on.
