Warne's scathing serve at Aussie quicks


//

Spin king Shane Warne highlighted a key issue with Australia's bowling attack in the series against India.

"Aussie quicks failed to take a single lbw ," Warne said on Fox Sports after day one of the fourth Test.

" 2592 deliveries, that's what the seamers have bowled, and only 205 have hit the stumps, which is 7.9 per cent.

" You're looking at 2387 balls that are taking out bowled and lbw and to me that's not good enough.

"That's wrong tactics or the bowlers haven't executed the plans enough."

Warne then took to Twitter to re-enforce his point.

India's highest scoring batsman in the series Cheteshwar Pujara has thrived hitting through the onside however, which could be a reason for Australia's bowling tactics so far.

With the bat Australia has vowed to follow Pujara's template in Sydney, where the veteran's third century of the series lifted India to 4-303 at stumps on day one of the fourth Test.

Pujara makes third 100 of the series

Pujara finished 130 not out at stumps on Thursday, when his highest score of a career-best series significantly boosted India's bid for a maiden Test series win in Australia.

"We're only really two wickets away from being able to break it open," recalled batsman Marnus Labuschagne told reporters.

"He (Pujara) was very classy. His time, his patience, just the way he batted ... a lot of time.

"That's what we're going to need to do. All of our batters are going to have to step up and put a big score on the board."

Pujara, as he has been throughout the series, was an immovable object occupying the crease with minimal fuss and maximum effect for some 250 balls.

Josh Hazlewood temporarily unsettled Pujara late in the morning session with a bouncer that struck the back of the helmet, while Mitchell Starc left a bruise on his arm late in the final session.

Pujara quickly regained composure after both blows and has now spent almost 30 hours batting in this series.

Aussie skipper Tim Paine wasted one of his two reviews; referring a caught-behind shout off Pat Cummins' bowling when Pujara was on 12.

Pujara clattered three Labuschagne long hops to the rope in the penultimate over of the post-lunch session but otherwise largely lived up to his mantra that "batting is like meditation".

Pujara and Kohli's 54-run stand was ended by Hazlewood, who had Kohli caught behind down the leg side in the first over after tea.

Ajinkya Rahane's dismissal on 18, to a rearing delivery from Starc, then gave the hosts hope of exposing India's tail on day one but it proved forlorn.
