Johnson scored 88 runs in the first innings and then took three quick wickets on Day Four as India lost the Test by four wickets. "It probably isn't too wise, is it?

It was just outstanding the way Mitchell Johnson came out and batted in the first innings and took the bowlers on. I think it got them off their lengths a little bit and probably helped me out at the other end as well," said Smith.
