Chennai: Feb 26, 2013

India will look to wrap up the first Test match against Australia on Day Five with the visitors on 232 for nine. Australia lead by 40 runs with one wicket in hand.

Moises Henriques (75 not out) and Nathan Lyon (8 not out) frustrated the Indian bowlers in the third session of Day Four by sharing an unbeaten 57-run last-wicket partnership.

Debutant Henriques would turn out to be Australia’s only silver lining in this first Test after he scored a second half-century and denied India an innings victory.

Henriques not only ensured that have to India bat to win the match, but also took the game into a fifth day — a scenario that seemed unlikely at the tea break.

Australia had lost half their side when the two teams took tea. At 128 for five, India would have sensed a win by the end of the day’s play as the visitors still trailed by 64 runs.

For India, Ravichandran Ashwin was the pick of the bowlers yet again, picking up five wickets to follow his seven in the first innings. Ravindra Jadeja and Harbhajan Singh picked up two each.

Brief Scores: Australia 380 and 232 for 9 (Moises Henriques 74*, Ed Cowan 32; Ravichandran Ashwin 5 for 90, Harbhajan Singh 2 for 55) lead India 572 (MS Dhoni 224, Virat Kohli 107, Sachin Tendulkar 81; James Pattinson 5 for 96) by 40 runs.
