Gill had watched his senior partner absorb the relentless punishment from the sanctuary of the non-striker’s end, having reached the second half-century of his already blossoming Test career during the battle.
But in the over prior to lunch, Gill’s watchfulness gave way to youthful exuberance as he clubbed Starc for six over third man despite the presence of a fielder on the boundary awaiting precisely that stroke.
The assault on Pujara’s person was stepped up after lunch, as the patience Australia had preached was replaced by frustration and the “good area” was recalibrated to be the upper torso of India’s obdurate batting lynchpin.
