In his first Test innings since January, Rohit scored an unbeaten 63 as India declared at 443/7 on Day 2 of the Melbourne Test. The Indian batsman, who struggled a bit with his back, said he had a chat with captain Kohli who has faced similar issues in the past.

"No right now I'm fine. This is the first time I've had this issue. I had a chat with Virat because he's had it before. He says it's a recurring issue. I didn't feel anything yesterday but I have to be really careful from now on," Rohit said.

After bowling Australia out for 151, India ended Day 3 at 54/5, with a 346-run lead over the visitors. Mayank Agarwal and Rishabh Pant will resume play on Saturday.
