The Indian side under Ajinkya Rahane can be proud of its achievement in rising from the ashes of Adelaide to inflict a shocking defeat on Australia in the Boxing Day Test.
The visitors, who were bundled out for their lowest ever Test total of 36 and thrashed inside three days in the day-night series opener, proved their mettle by overpowering the Aussies in the Boxing Day Test.
"To be rolled over for 36 and three days later to get up and be ready to punch back was outstanding," said the Indian head coach.
Chasing a target of 70, India lost a couple of early wickets before captain Ajinkya Rahane (27 not out) and opener Shubman Gill (35 not out) guided them home.
The visitors now look to wrap up the proceedings on the fourth day as Australia have a slender lead of two runs with only four wickets in hand.
Here is a look back at India's stunning Test wins over Australia at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground in 1977 and 1981.
Rahane and Jadeja were batting on 104 and 40 respectively, as the visitors reached 277/5 at stumps on day two in reply to Australia's 195.
Australian and Indian players united before the first ball after tea to pay respect to the veteran cricketer alongside the late Jones' wife Jan and daughters Augusta and Phoebe, and former Australian captain Allan Border.
India were 36/1 at stumps after bowling out Australia for 195.
The former Australian head coach said that it will come down to whether the visiting batsmen can cope with the bounce.
