Summary

Australia need five wickets in the second Ttest to secure a series-levelling victory with India's daunting run chase on a menacing pitch teetering at stumps on day four on Monday.

Chasing 287 runs after bowling out Australia’s second innings for 243, India reached the close at 112 for five with Hanuma Vihari 24 not out and Rishabh Pant unbeaten on nine.

Struggling on the Perth Stadium pitch marked by widening cracks, India made a poor start losing the key wickets of Lokesh Rahul for a fourth-ball duck and Cheteshwar Pujara, India’s first test hero in Adelaide, for four.

Nathan Lyon got the prized wicket of Virat Kohli, who hit a century in the first innings, and Ajinkya Rahane also departed after losing a wicket to Josh Hazlewood.
