#IndiaInAustralia: Three key moments of Day three of fourth Test

Team India will be happy with the proceedings on Day three of the ongoing Test match against Australia at the SCG.

The hosts trail India by 386 runs after ending the day at 236/6.

Indian spinners ruled the roost on a flat Sydney pitch.

Bad light hindered play with just 73.3 overs being bowled today.

Here are the key moments.

Kuldeep, Jadeja dictate the show in Sydney

The Indian spinners bowled exceptionally well. Kuldeep Yadav picked up three wickets. Ravindra Jadeja was instrumental with figures of 2/62. The cause was also helped with some ordinary batting by the Australians. Marcus Harris was the top run-scorer (79).

Nobody took a leaf out from India's centurion Cheteshwar Pujara.

Australian batsmen found ways to get themselves out.
