A look back at the crucial passages of play during day three between India and Australia at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.

An exceptional maiden Test double-century from MS Dhoni - and one that is potentially match-changing - emphatically took India from an uncomfortable period and into the lead over Australia on day three at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.

Dhoni walked in at the fall of Sachin Tendulkar for 81 after India had scored just 14 runs in the 11 overs and proceeded to dominate a stand of 128 with Virat Kohli (107) before marshalling the lower order to a total of 515 for 8. At stumps, India led Australia by 135 with Dhoni on 206 - the highest score by any wicketkeeper-captain and the best by an Indian 'keeper.
