WATCH: Indian captain Rohit Sharma asks Ishan Kishan to signal Pujara for aggressive hitting

With Nathan Lyon of Australia demolishing the formidable Indian batting line-up on a frustrating afternoon for the hosts, it was up to Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara to save the day with his batting vigil in the third Border-Gavaskar Trophy match at Indore. When the chips are down, veteran Pujara is known for emerging as Rohit Sharma’s knight in shining armour in the game’s longest and oldest format.

Around the 52nd over, Rohit looked dissatisfied after seeing Pujara and Axar let some loose balls go unnoticed. He then had an animated conversation with substitute Ishan Kishan between overs (almost suggesting the type of shots to play) and urged him to relay the message to the duo.
