Ind vs Aus 2nd Test Day 3: India dominates with revenge, Australia finishes day 3 on 133/6: India are well within the distance of levelling the four-match Test series after reducing Australia to 133 for 6 at stumps on the third day of the second Test here on Monday.
Ajinkya Rahane’s 112 and Ravindra Jadeja’s 57 took India to a decent first innings score of 326 and a handy 131 run lead.
The visitors now look to wrap up the proceedings on the fourth day as Australia have a slender lead of two runs with only four wickets in hand.
For India, Jasprit Bumrah bowled brilliantly to end the day with 1/34 while Ravindra Jadeja got 2/25.
Ravichandran Ashwin and Mohammed Siraj also got a wicket apiece.
The only worry for India is Umesh Yadav’s (1/5 in 3.3 overs) calf muscle injury after removing opener Joe Burns with a peach of delivery.
