Under the captaincy of Ajinkya Rahane, India came up stronger on Day 3 as they put early domination against wounded Australia, halting them at 92/5 at Tea of the fourth and final Test at the HPCA Stadium, Dharamsala on Monday.

Middle-order batsman Glenn Maxwell (37*) remained the only hitter on crease in the end of the second session, with Australia leading the Test by 60 runs with five wickets remaining.

Spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja thumped the Aussies just before Tea, dismissing Peter Handscomb (18) and Shaun Marsh (1) respectively on 25th and 26th over.

Earlier, paceman Umesh Yadav dismissed both the openers Matt Renshaw (8) and David Warner (6), while Bhuvneshwar Kumar took the scalp of skipper Steve Smith (17) to support him in pace attack.
