It was a rough ride for the hosts as only 66 runs were scored in that innings, costing team India not one not two but 4 major wickets by the end of the second session.
Shubman Gill was cleaned up by spinner Lyon in the very first over after Lunch. Rohit Sharma too couldn’t hold a tight grip for a long partnership and departed early.
India lost a review as skipper Rohit decided to go upstairs on the LBW declaration against Lyon. Spinner Lyon has now surpassed Sri Lankan veteran Muttiah Muralitharan in the list of most wickets against India.
India happened to score their first boundary in the 13th over while Virat Kohli was once again departed cheaply. Just five minutes before the tea session was about to take place, India lost Jadeja in the LBW appeal by Lyon and teammates.
Both sides are gearing up for a pivotal final session.
Tea on Day 2 of the 3rd Test#TeamIndia 79/4, trail Australia by 9 runs. @cheteshwar1 going strong on 36*.
