B'luru Test: Jadeja's six-fer helps India bundle out Aussies for 276

Bengaluru [India], Mar.6 (ANI): Ravindra Jadeja completed a six-wicket haul as India bundled out Australia for 276 in their first innings on the third day of the second Test at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium here on Monday.

Resuming at yesterday's score of 237-6, Matthew Wade (40) and Mitchell Starc (26) made significant contributions before being dismissed by Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin, respectively.

Jadeja then took wickets of Nathan Lyon (duck) and Josh Hazlewood (one) in quick successions to eventually bowl out the visitors under 300 runs.

However, it was the first time India have conceded a first innings lead of 87 runs after batting first at home since 2012 against England and only the fifth time since 2005.

Jadeja finished with the figures of six for 63, including three from the second day. Ashwin scalped two wickets while Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav also chipped in with a wicket each.

At the time of filing of this report, India have resumed their second innings and were batting at 15-0, with K L Rahul (10) and Abhinav Mukund (0) batting at the crease. (ANI)
