8.30 am: For India, the three spinners did the bulk of the bowling. R Ashwin picked up his seventh five wicket haul as he flummoxed the Australians. Harbhajan Singh and Ravindra Jadeja picked up two wickets each. India will be looking to take this last wicket quickly and chase this target down in a canter. Join us tomorrow for the conclusion of this Test. Scorecard

Australia were all at sea against the spinners. At 9/175, an innings victory loomed large for India. However, Moises Henriques and Nathan Lyon showed the top order how to bat on this wicket. Henriques became the fifth Australian batsman to score two fifties on Test debut. Lyon has given him good support and Australia will hope that they can bat on. Commentary

India will be ruing the fact that they could not take this last wicket. So, Australia have managed to drag this match into the fifth day, a small moral victory for them.
