Nathan Lyon took eight wickets as India were bundled out for 163 in 60.3 overs on the second day of the third Test against Australia in Indore on Thursday. The hosts are facing a big defeat as Steve Smith’s men have been given a target of just 76 runs to win the Test and book a place in the final of the World Test Championship (WTC). Lyon spun a net around India’s batsmen, returning figures of 23.3-1-64-8. Cheteshwar Pujara batted carefully but fell after scoring 59 runs. The veteran batsman’s departure, with Smith taking a blunder at leg slip off Lyon’s bowling, almost ended India’s resistance.
Umesh Yadav lasted just two balls, caught by Cameron Green in the deep for a duck, as India’s batting went down without a whimper.

India are leading the series 2-0 with wins in Nagpur and New Delhi.

Brief scores: India 109 and 163 in 60.3 overs (Cheteshwar Pujara 59; Nathan Lyon 8/64) in 60.3 overs.

Australia 1st innings: 197 all out in 76.3 overs.
