Australia made 232-9 after 83 overs at stumps on the fourth day in their second innings after having bowled out India for 572 - a deficit of 192 - in the first Test at MA Chidambaram Stadium on Monday.
India appeared to cruising to an innings victory inside four days but the last wicket pair had other ideas having come together when 17 runs were needed to make India bat again.
But Henriques showed character to spearhead a magnificent rearguard recovery which brought some respectability to their total and helped Australia avert the ignominy of an innings defeat with the help of some lusty blows from tailenders Pattinson, Starc and Lyon.
Henriques who completed his twin fifty by swatting Harbhajan for one of his two sixes, the other coming off Ashwin, faced 124 balls and hit six boundaries during his fighting knock.
Ravichandran Ashwin was the scourge of the Australians once again claiming five for 90 and match bag of 12 for 193 so far opening the attack after the spinners were thrown the new ball by Dhoni.
