4th Test: Aus all out for 300, India in driver’s seat

In the ongoing test match between India and Australia at Sydney, India restricted Australia for 300 in the first innings and enforced a follow-on on the fourth day.

Team India had made 622 for 7 after opting to bat. Australia were six for no loss, trailing by 316 runs, when early tea was taken due to bad light.

Intermittent rain and bad light led to substantial loss of play with only 25.2 overs bowled on Day 4.

Australia were placed at 6-0 in 4 overs after Kuldeep Yadav’s five-wicket haul in his maiden Test Down Under helped India bowl the home team out for 300 in the first innings.

Aussies had resumed their first innings in the morning at the overnight score of 236 for 6, after the start of proceedings was delayed due to rain.

It was also the first time since 1988 that Australia were forced to follow-on at home.

Earlier, India scored 622 for 7 and declared the innings after centuries from Cheteshwar Pujara and Rishabh Pant. This is the final Test of the 4-match Border-Gavaskar Trophy. India is leading the series, 2-1.
