Australian offspinner Nathan Lyon took four wickets to rock the Indian batting line-up to leave the hosts in a spot of bother at 248/6 at stumps on the second day of the fourth Test at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamsala on Sunday.

Lyon, who took eight wickets on the first day of the second Test in Bangalore, and got just one wicket in the third Test in Ranchi, dismissed Cheteshwar Pujara, Karun Nair, Ajinkya Rahane and Ravichandran Ashwin after tea to turn the match slightly in Australia’s favour.

Though the presence of Wriddhiman Saha and Ravindra Jadeja would still give India some hope of overhauling the Australian first innings lead, the first session on the third day will be crucial as the Aussie pacers will make the new ball talk.Lyon first had Pujara (57) caught by Peter Handscomb at

Lyon broke the back of the Indian middle order and was ably supported by pacers Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins who bowled with fire and Steve O’Keefe hardly gave anything away.

Pujara hit his 15th fifty in the company of Rahane after rush of blood got the better of opener Lokesh Rahul. Pujara not only tired the Aussie bowlers out by defending, but also rotated the strike to keep the scorecard ticking and brought up his fifty with a four between mid-on and midwicket off Nathan Lyon.
