O'Keefe the destroyer as India collapses

“For us it's about not worrying too much about results over here. It's worrying about the processes and making sure that individually we have the game plans in place to give ourselves the best chance to succeed,” said Australian skipper Stev

After braving the spinners' onslaught, the Aussie batsmen braved them and managed to score a respectable 260 on their first innings. As for Kohli, he scored a duck in the first innings and was clean bowled when he didn't offer a shot in the second innings. Since Team India was playing on tailor-made home pitches, it was reasonable to assume the record would have extended even further till the end of the four-test series against Australia as well.

"We were too complacent, our spinners are the best in the world, (Ravichandran) Ashwin, (Ravindra) Jadeja, they are fantastic bowlers".

"The fact that we had some younger players here who haven't experienced here before - no scars - they were able to go out and just play the game", he told Grandstand.

"The way the Australians fought on a pitch they were not familiar with, it was incredible to watch".

7 Consecutive Tests lost by Australia in India before registering a win in Pune.

So what is in store for Day 3?

"It's been 4,502 days since Australia won a Test in India, I know it to the day", Smith said. However, this Test has progressed at such a pace that Day 2 could very well turn out to be the moving day of the game.

He made the most of his luck - dropped three times on the second day - and resumed on the third morning on 59, with Australia's lead already standing at 298. "It was well supported by Nathan Lyon and the two fast bowlers as well".

"It'll be interesting to see what they come up with", he said.

This was Australia's 1st Test win on Indian soil since October 2004 in Nagpur. "We lost those four wickets in the space of 5-6 balls".

"I wanted to do my bit for the team and try and make sure we had a pretty good day". "And we've got to be ready for it".

Virat Kohli's side had played on more docile pitches for much of their 20-Test undefeated streak at home, especially during the five-Test series against England that finished last December.

Ball turning and hissing, fielders around the bat and frequent appeals of bat-pad or leg-before -- survival was tough out there.

"It's fine. It's just another worldwide game, it's no big deal", Kohli said when asked about the mood in the Indian dressing room.

Spin was the password to success again, as Steve O'Keefe and Nathan Lyon started the job of dismantling the batting in the second innings. But as the rules of Test cricket indicates that once the batsman leaves the field, he's only allowed to come back at the fall of one wicket so that will be considered as retired hurt/ill.
