For India, pacer Umesh Yadav scalped two wickets for 22 runs while Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin chipped in with one wicket apiece.

Earlier, after bowling India out for 332 in the first session, Australia struggled right from the word go.

Continuing his poor form, opener David Warner (6) was the first to return to the pavilion with the visitors’ scoreboard reading 10 runs.

Yadav bowled an in-swinger delivery that found the edge of the bat and landed in wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha’s gloves.

Incoming batsmen Steve Smith, who scored a brilliant century in the first innings, could only manage 17 runs in the second innings.

Smith was bowled by Kumar, who delivered a short ball which, taking the bottom edge, flattened the off stump.

Youngster Matt Renshaw (8) was the next batsmen to leave — sent packing in the next over by Yadav.

A short-of-length delivery, rising into the chest, did the trick for Yadav and the visitors were reeling at 31/3.

Middle order batsmen Peter Handscomb (18) was then sent back cheaply by Ashwin.

Earlier, India were bowled out for 332 at lunch, taking a 32-run lead in the first innings.

Jadeja (63), Lokesh Rahul (60) and Cheteshwar Pujara (57) were the major contributors for the Indian cause.

For Australia, spinner Nathon Lyon scalped five wickets while Cummins took three wickets. Josh Hazlewood and O’Keefe chipped in with one wicket each.
