Australia‘s openers safely negotiated four overs of their second innings before bad light sent both teams off the field six minutes before the schedule tea interval on day four at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Forced to follow on for the first time in a home Test since 1998 after being bowled out for 300 during the afternoon sessions, Australia went into the break trailing India by 316 runs. Usman Khawaja is 4 off 12 balls and Marcus Harris 2 from 12.

Sunday marked the first instance of a visiting team enforcing the follow-on in Australia in three decades. The last team to do was England in 1988, also at the SCG.

Prolonged and steady rain Sunday prevented any play on the fourth morning, and then under slate grey skies and with the floodlights on, India wrapped up Australia’s innings in 104.5 overs to claim a lead of 322 and enforce the follow-on.

Tea: Australia 300 & 6/0 trail India 622/7 declared by 316 runs.
