The Australians lost their last six wickets for 51 runs, despite a 36-run final-wicket stand between Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood.

Usman Khawaja with a top score of 72 runs showed a great patience against the Indian pacers. The 31-year-old got to his 14th half-century off 155 balls.

On the other hand, it was a great time for Indian bowlers as Mohammed Shami claimed his career-best 6-56 to restrict the target to fewer than 300.
