The Indian bowlers rampaged through the Australian batting lineup with pacer Umesh Yadav and the spin duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja scalpng three wickets each — medium-pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar took one wicket.

Glenn Maxwell (45 runs off 60 balls) was the highest scorer for the visitors.

Australia, resuming the post-tea session at 92/5, never looked comfortable on the turning track here.

Maxwell, who seemed good at the crease, also departed soon falling to Ashwin in the 33rd over.

Apart from Maxwell, no other batsmen stood up to the occasion and there was a seemingly unending procession back to the pavilion.

The last three batsmen — Steve O’ Keefe, Nathan Lyon and Josh Hazlewood — returned to the pavilion without scoring.
