Melbourne: On 4th day of the Boxing Day Test match, Australia was bowled out for 200 in the last over of the first session, having put on a lead of 69. India will chase the tiny target of 70 to clinch the match at MCG and to level the series against the host Aussies 1-1.


Cameron Green (45) mounted a counter-attack but was dismissed with one hour left.

Indian bowling attack crippled Australian top order and forced the Australian to gain a small lead. Mohammed Siraj took 3 wickets while Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin managed to get 2 wickets each. Umesh Yadav in his little spell in the 2nd inning managed to take 1 wicket before getting out of the field due to calf injury.
