Lyon's classic sledge after Pujara's century


//

Australian spinner Nathan Lyon is no stranger to banter in a Test match, and 'Gary' didn't hesitate when Indian batsman Cheteshwar Pujara made his third century of the series at the SCG.

After tea Pujara reached 100 after facing 199 on day one in Sydney.

In an exchange with Lyon moments after celebrating the milestone, Lyon chirped the batsman.

"Aren't you bored yet?" Lyon was saying to Pujara.

Pujara put India in the box seat with his patient 100+ knock.

The insatiable top order linchpin became the first Indian to twice face over 1000 deliveries in a series against Australia having soaked up 1069 in the four-match home series in 2017.

Pujara has already faced twice as many balls as any Australian in the series, with Usman Khawaja heading the locals with 509 deliveries.

Hazlewood gets Kohli out

He reached his 50 just before tea, after taking three fours off leg spinner Marnus Labuschagne's first over, to go to the break on 61 off 138 balls having swelled his delivery tally for the series to 1023.

Earlier Indian skipper Virat Kohli's ongoing battle with the SCG faithful continued when he was booed to the crease by some sections of the crowd.

Chants of 'Kohli, Kohli' boomed across the iconic venue when he walked to the crease on Thursday, as the tourists' fans were overcome with awe.

But some of Australia's supporters voiced their disapproval of the pantomime villain on day one of the fourth Test.

The captain's time at the crease was limited in India's first innings, dismissed for just 23 runs off Josh Hazlewood's bowling.

Kohli copped a smattering of boos in the previous three Tests, with Ricky Ponting and Travis Head both expressing their disappointment in Adelaide.

It also isn't the first time that Kohli has been jeered by fans in Sydney.

Kohli's maiden tour of Australia in 2012 was marred by an incident in the SCG Test, when he was in the field and gave some hecklers the middle finger.
