The result also ensured that the four-match series is locked at 1-1, setting up a much-awaited final Test at Brisbane.

    Vihari Plays Vital Knock | One has to credit Hanuma Vihari for the temperament and maturity he has shown. Vihari could probably be the most important man of the Test if India manage to draw it. He was injured and could not run, yet he stuck his ground and faced bouncers. 10 overs to go.

    Into the last hour and the Australians are appealing for everything, especially Lyon. With fielders close to the bat, Lyon is attacking. Seems like India has shut shop and are playing for a draw which would be a commendable result. Both Vihari and Ashwin have shown temperament to counter the pressure.

    Last Hour | India have dragged the Test into the last hour and now it seems Ashwin and Vihari are playing for a draw which would be a big morale boost for India. At one stage, they were reeling, then Pant turned things around and now the Test looks poised for a draw. IND Need 106 to win.

    Ashwin-Vihari Steady | Both Ashwin and Vihari – who were in a bit of discomfort – have fought their way to raise hopes of a win again. It is not over as yet as all three results are still possible. India still needs 108 runs to win.

Chasing 407, India openers – Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill – got off to a brilliant start, stitching a 71-run stand and more importantly seeing off the early burst from a formidable Australian pace-battery with the new-ball. Gill was the first to depart as he edged one to Tim Paine off the first ball of Josh Hazlewood’s second spell.

Rohit looked in a positive frame of mind as he brought up his first fifty as an opener in an overseas Test. Just when India looked to be on track in chase of 407, Rohit was dismissed by Pat Cummins trying to hook the ball at the stroke of stumps.

At stumps on Day four, Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane are in the middle and would be the key if India wants to prevent a loss. Catch all the live updates on India.com.
