Story highlights

Peter Handscomb, unbeaten on 28, and Pat Cummins, who had made 25, will resume the game today. 

Day 4 of the fourth and final Test between India and Australia was delayed due to incessant rain at the Sydney Cricket Ground. 

Peter Handscomb, unbeaten on 28, and Pat Cummins, who had made 25, will resume the game today. 

Australia's batting woes returned on the third day as they slumped to 236 for the loss of six wickets when bad light and rain brought an early end to their response to India's mammoth first-innings tally of 622-7 declared.

The Virat Kohli-led side only need a draw to claim a first series win in Australia and the home side's hopes of preventing even that faded as they blew a solid start to lose five wickets after lunch.

Marcus Harris, Marnus Labuschagne, Shaun Marsh and Travis Head were all dismissed after lunch and captain Tim Paine followed soon after the tea break.
