India lost the crucial wickets of Rishabh Pant and Cheteshwar Pujara as they reached 280/5 in their chase of 407 at the end of the second session on the final day of the third Test against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).

At Tea break, Hanuma Vihari and Ravichandran Ashwin were at the crease on 4 and 7 respectively as India need another 127 runs to register what would be an incredible win.

Resuming the post-Lunch session at 206/3, Pant and Pujara batted just like they did in the first two hours of the day, collecting runs at a brisk pace. Pant took chances and scored boundaries and gave a huge scare to the Australian team before he got out just three short of what would have been a well-deserved century.
