Ishant Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja defeated Matt Renshaw and Steven Smith within the space of four balls to keep India on course for victory over Australia at lunch on the final day of the third Test in Ranchi.

Renshaw and Smith played with good sense and without too many alarms for nearly 90 minutes on resumption, before Ishant followed a pair of bouncers with a well-pitched inswinger to pin Renshaw in front of the stumps. Next over, Smith failed to get his pad in line with a Jadeja delivery twirled down from over the wicket and had his off stump knocked over.

That one-two punch left Shaun Marsh and Peter Handscomb in grim occupation at the interval, with the Australians still 69 runs short of making India bat again on a surface now offering some lavish turn to the spinners and the occasional instance of variable bounce for the pacemen.

Smith and Renshaw had begun simply trying to bat for as long as possible, taking occasional scoring opportunities but stripping their games of risk. India’s captain Virat Kohli began with Jadeja at one end and Umesh Yadav at the other, not calling on the offbreaks of the world’s No. 1 ranked bowler R Ashwin.
