Chennai: After being hammered around the park on Sunday, Australian wicket-keeper Matthew Wade on Sunday said that Indian batsmen showed them how to bat on such a pitch which is deteriorating fast but still has lot of runs in it.

India scored 333 runs on day three of the first Test with skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni scoring a majestic double century and young Virat Kohli a patient century.
