Delhi Test Day 3: India vs Australia Live Streaming | IND vs AUS
India were all out for 272 in their first innings, while replying to Australia's 262 on the third day of the fourth and final Test cricket on Sunday.
Nathan Lyon scalped seven wickets as Indian batsmen were tested for the first time in the series on a crumbling track but still managed to take a slender ten-run first-innings lead in the fourth and final cricket Test.
At stumps after an intriguing second day's play, India struggled their way to 266 for eight despite a century-plus opening stand between Cheteshwar Pujara (52) and Murali Vijay (57) after the visitors had scored 262 in their first innings.
The bulk of the damage was done in the post-tea session when India lost six wickets as the Australian bowlers looked menacing for the first time.
If India manage a lead of even 50 runs, it could turn out to be a decisive one considering Australia's lack of firepower to counter the Indian spinners.
Curator Venkat Sundaram designed the pitch at the Feroz Shah Kotla keeping in mind the requirements of the Indian team, but it boomeranged on the hosts instead, as Lyon (5/94) extracted sharp turn and bounce to get rid of top-order players like Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Pujara and debutant Ajinkya Rahane.
