Scorecard

Australia face a final-day battle to save the final Test after being forced to follow on by India in Sydney.

The hosts resumed on 236-6 in reply to India’s 622-7 but lost Pat Cummins to the sixth ball of day four, and Peter Handscomb soon followed for 37.

The tail wagged a little but left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav (5-99) wrapped up the innings for 300.

Australia were 6-0, still 316 runs short of making India bat again, when bad light and rain ended play early.

More to follow.
