    TRANSCRIPT: COMMENTATOR: "First victim of the day was claimed by Bedi. Could be out caught? Yes, Hughes is out.
    After making a great 68 Cozier too was out. Bowled him round his legs I'd say. Yes, cozier is out bowled round his legs by Bedi for 68. Australia four for 106.
    Bedi wasn't so lucky against Simpson. And a full toss is away, and that's the first scoring stroke of the afternoon. Four runs to Simpson.
    Injured Peter Toohey also attacked, and the first ball is hit beautifully by Toohey, down to the boundary for four. That was nice shot.
    Toohey and Simpson put on 65 before the partnership was ended. Must be close. That's it. Simpson is out LBW to Prasanna. Australia losing their fifth wicket for 171.
    Two balls later Mann was out. Out, caught and bowled. So Australia are six for 171. Mann caught and bowled Prasanna.
    Rain and bad light then caused play to be interrupted three times, and at stumps australia were still eight wickets down and 22 runs behind India's first innings total. the not out batsmen were Toohey on 77 and Thomson on four.
    Best shots of the day came from young New Sough Wales batsman Peter Toohey. That's a good shot. They are going to try to run three here I would think. It's being chased by Prasanna. They should get three. yes, going back for a third run.
    But after overcoming injury and scoring 85 Toohey's luck was to come to an end. He's hooked this on. What a beautiful catch down there at fine leg, what a magnificent catch by Madan Lal.
    It should be four, going over the top of point into the fence for four.
    Thomson was eventually out for 16. Bowled him, it's all over."
