India finished on a high on the fourth day evening; with Ravindra Jadeja striking twice in quick succession to keep pegging back Australia. The visiting team lost one of their best batsmen in David Warner for 14, and the nightwatchman Nathan Lyon was cleaned up for 2 as Australia trudged to 23 for 2 at stumps.

Australia need to score 129 more runs to ensure India come out to bat again but the possibility of this scenario taking place is very less. The Steven Smith-led side will aim to bat out the fifth and final day and keep their hopes alive going into the fourth and the final Test.
