This is what Cheteshwar Pujara had to say at the end of day 3: 

“The way I started playing shots, I expected that they will be on the defensive mode but when they have 537 runs on board the plan is very simple, first to reach that mark. And obviously we have a bright chance to win the game if we bat well tomorrow,” said Pujara who scored an attacking 124.

“The ball will start turning from tomorrow and batting on day five will be difficult. At the moment I don’t want to talk too much about it,” said Pujara, who himself along with Murali Vijay were dismissed in the final session.
