David Warner believes Australia should hold off on declaring ahead of day five in the third Test against India in Melbourne.
The encounter is set for an enthralling finish on Tuesday, after a rain-affected day four on Monday.
Australia turned a 65-run first-innings cushion into a 326-run lead, but the tourists will be eyeing their first victory of the visit Down Under to keep the series alive. A draw would result in a series win for the hosts.
At stumps, Australia's second innings was at 261-7, with a declaration from captain Steve Smith expected either overnight or early on Tuesday, but Warner, who overcame a bruised arm and thumb to hit 40, believes his side need to add more runs before calling an end to their innings.
"I think we need a few more runs than what we have got on the board at the moment," he said.
"We saw in the Adelaide test how well they fought there and luckily they got the breakthrough because it could have been a different story. They would have gone one-nil up.
"We know what their batting line-up is like; [Virat] Kohli and [Ajinkya] Rahane put on a great partnership . They had their luck but they went on with it and got big scores.
"That is in the back of our mind. We know the positive brand of cricket they are playing now and we have got to come out with the ball and either dry it up or take those ten wickets."
Indi'a Ravi Ashwin, meanwhile, has not given up hope, despite Australia's commanding position given the highest run-chase in Tests at the MCG is England's successful pursuit of 332 all the way back in 1928.
"You never know - we can probably get them out or they can probably set a target for us," he said.
"We're pretty open to anything. Whatever comes, we'll take it as far as possible and see what happens."
