  • Oct 10, 08:52 PM (IST)

    India simply did not find a footing in the inning. The Australian bowling attack was up for the challenge. Jason was star of the Australian bowling attack today. He took those four wickets upfront and dislodged India's chances if there were any.

    India's best performer was Kedar Jadhav 27 (27). Chasing 119, Australia will fancy their chances. The total is well short of a defensible score.

    Australia will be happy with this. A win would help them level the series and take it to the decider in Hyderabad, in few days time.
