In the second innings Indian openers put forward a 63 runs stand but a good start didn’t capitalise well as both the batsmen got out within next five overs.

Nathyan Lyon was leading the Australian bowling attack as he took 6 for 122 in 42 overs. Team India put forward a significant total of 323 runs to win for Australia. On the end of day 4 Australian scored 104 for 4 and the match looked in the favour of visitors. But it was the same story the tail-enders gave India a tough time and brought the team score to 291 for 9 when Ravichandran Ashwin got the wicket of Josh Hazelwood and got team India 1-0 lead in the 4 test match series.
