About the declaration at the fall of ninth wicket, Wade reasoned, "The main message that we tried sending was let's try and get a couple of wickets tonight."
"There was up and down bounce. We felt, if we can get the ball in the right areas, get one to stay low or get one to jump up, we can get a couple of nicks or a couple of leg befores. May be, we can have a couple of wickets tonight. That didn't happen but we are pretty confident that if we hit the stumps enough, we will create enough chances."
Wade applauded the Indian bowlers for keeping up the pressure.
"They (bowlers) bowled well and the ball was reversing. They got early wickets and then challenged us with every ball they bowled. They will play their role throughout well."
About his own innings, the 25-year-old Tasmanian said, "I felt in control today. I felt like my plans against the spinners and quicks came off pretty well. Still, it was pretty disappointing to get out when I did. Myself and Michael had built up a good platform. We lost a lot of wickets in that last session. I was satisfied in a way that my plans worked."
