Melbourne: India are well within distance of levelling the four-match Test series after reducing Australia to 133 for 6 at stumps on the third day of the second Test here on Monday.

Ajinkya Rahane”s 112 and Ravindra Jadeja”s 57 took India to a decent first innings score of 326 and a handy 131 run lead.

The visitors now look to wrap up the proceedings on the fourth day as Australia have a slender lead of two runs with only four wickets in hand.

For India, Jasprit Bumrah bowled brilliantly to end the day with 1/34 while Ravindra Jadeja got 2/25.

Ravichandran Ashwin and Mohammed Siraj also got a wicket apiece.

The only worry for India is Umesh Yadav”s (1/5 in 3.3 overs) calf muscle injury after removing opener Joe Burns with a peach of delivery.

Brief Scores: Australia 195 and 33/6 (Matthew Wade 40, Marnus Labuschagne 28, Steve Smith 8, Jasprit Bumrah 1/34, R Jadeja 2/25)

India 1t Innings 326 (Ajinkya Rahane 112, Ravindra Jadeja 57, Mitchell Starc 3/78, Nathan Lyon 3/72).
