Adelaide: India gets a strong hold as Australia, while chasing a formidable lead of 322 runs, were 104/4 in their second innings at the end of the fourth day of the opening cricket Test here on Sunday.

At stumps, Shaun Marsh was batting on 31 while Travis Head was on 11 at the other end. The Australians still need 219 runs to win.

Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and fast bowler Mohammed Shami did the maximum damage for Australian batsmen as they took two wickets each.

Earlier, the Indians batted steadily to put themselves a somewhat comfortable position before Lyon cleaned up the middle and lower order in quick succession.

Lyon was the pick of the Australian bowlers with figures of 6/122. Fast bowler Mitchell Starc returned figures of 3/40.
