India vs Australia, Sydney Test Day 3 Report
The day started with India resuming at 96 for two, lost their last eight wickets for 148 runs in the first two sessions as the Aussies bowled extremely accurately on a placid surface.
India though had lost just two wickets in the first session and managed to score 84 runs in that pre-lunch period as Cheteshwar Pujara (50) and Pant (36) looked to resurrect the innings following the early loss of skipper Ajinkya Rahane (22) and Hanuma Vihari (4).
