4th Test: Australia out for 300; India enforce follow-on

"If he keeps learning, he is going to be the best-ever (captain) that India has had, in terms of results and in terms of getting the players to perform at the highest level", Gavaskar told Sony Sports on Sunday. "You can see where Mitchell Starc is standing at the non-striker's end", he added. "That dismissal actually says a lot to me about the mindset of this Australian team at the moment".

"Why wouldn't they have had a look at that?" They still have the two reviews up their sleeve. There had to be some sort of doubt in that. "Given out straight away and Mitchell Starc just puts his hand out and says 'oh well, it's not me, it's up to you to make (a call)".

"It's a partnership when they are together, you do whatever you can to try and save your mate".

However, Handscomb insists there is nothing wrong with the attitude in the Aussie side, instead pointing to the fickle nature of the review process as an explanation for the incident.

"DRS is random with stuff like that", Handscomb said.

Fickle weather on day four prevented India from closing in on a big win in the fourth Test but they were well on course for their maiden series victory in Australia after forcing the hosts to follow-on at home for the first time since 1988.

Kohli will inflict unprecedented ignominy when he becomes the first man to lead India to a test series win in Australia, ending a barren streak that dates back to 1948.

"We've definitely had opportunities to make hundreds in the series, it's been execution or a few other amusing ways that people have got out, so that's it really".

Nearly to a man Australia's team have got starts without going on with it this series.

He will re-join Pat Cummins (25) at the crease after bad light ended play early with Australia struggling at 6-262, still trailing the tourists' first-innings total by 386 runs.

This was after Australia were bowled out for 300 runs (104.5 overs) in their first innings and were asked to follow on, surrendering a lead of 322 runs.
