  • Wicket No. 1: David Warner
    After being dropped by Karun Nair a little earlier, David Warner (6) just about manages to get an edge from Umesh Yadav's delivery which swings back in. Wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha completes the formalities. Australia 10 for one
  • Wicket No. 2: Steven Smith
    Opening bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who probably got carried away with the short stuff, gets lucky as Australia's in-form batsman Steven Smith (17) chops one and demolishes his off stump. Australia 31 for two
  • Wicket No. 3: Matt Renshaw
    Umesh Yadav's short of a length delivery rises up to the tall Matt Renshaw's (8) chest before the left-handed opener fends it for Wriddhiman Saha to pouch the catch. The young opener has indeed had a forgettable Test — with the bat and his catching. Australia 31 for three
  • Wicket No. 4: Peter Handscomb
    Peter Handscomb (18) gets a handsome ball from Ravichandran Ashwin - a length ball which doesn't turn - but flies off the edge of Handscomb's bat to Rahane at first slip. The India captain displays fantastic reflexes in this dismissal. Australia 87 for four
  • Wicket No. 5: Shaun Marsh
    For a man in some amount of form, one didn't expect Shaun Marsh (1) to glove this one to short leg where Cheteshwar Pujara was stationed. Marsh will surely regret playing back to the turning ball. Australia 92 for five
  • Wicket No. 6: Glenn Maxwell
    You don't normally get away not offering a shot and padding one off Ravichandran Ashwin, but Glenn Maxwell (45) in a seemingly lapse in concentration, does and pays the price. He reviews it, but the umpire's decision stays and he has to walk back to the pavilion. Australia 106 for six
  • Wicket No. 7: Pat Cummins
    A left-arm spinner's dream wicket - a well tossed up delivery by Ravindra Jadeja to Pat Cummins (12) which the batsman can't resist driving. It lands up in the safe hands of Ajinkya Rahane at slip. Australia 121 for seven
  • Wicket No. 8: Steve O'Keefe
    No addition to the score and a wicket falls - €”this happens for the second time as tailender Steve O'€™Keefe's (0) defensive shot off Ravindra Jadeja lands up in the hands of Cheteshwar Pujara at silly point. Australia 121 for eight
  • Wicket No. 9: Nathan Lyon
    It doesn't take a peach of a delivery from Umesh Yadav to see off Nathan Lyon (0). The off-spinner pushes one for Murali Vijay to hold on to a sharp chance at second slip. Umesh is ecstatic to claim his third wicket in the innings. Australia 122 for nine
  • Wicket No. 10: Josh Hazlewood
    Josh Hazlewood (0) is given out leg before to Ravichandran Ashwin for a duck, but the paceman reviews it. It appears he has been caught at silly point too, but umpire Ian Gould's lbw decision stays and Australia have ended their last innings of the tour. Australia 137 all out

The Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association strip is probably the best of the four dished out for this series, but the visitors could not bat out Day 3. That could be attributed to some brilliant Indian bowling. Take a look
