Aus 201-6 (70 ovs) & 469 vs Ind 296 | Scorecard

Carey and Starc have kept themselves busy as they pick two singles each off Thakur's eighth over.

Carey has looked quite good against Jadeja. He is not afraid to drive from the rough as he hits the spinner in the gap through the covers for a four to bring up Australia's 200, in the 69th over.

Umesh comes back for a short burst before lunch as Thakur bowled just a couple of overs in his previous spell.

Starc blocks the first ball before he steers the next past point for a single and Carey inside edges the next ball on to his pads and plays out the rest of the over.

Australia go into the lunch break on Day 4 on 201/6 in 70 overs, stretching their overall lead to 374 runs.

Carey has played a good hand with the bat once again, scoring 41 from 61 balls, while Starc has made 11, with the duo putting on 34 runs from 42 balls for the seventh wicket.

India's bowlers picked up a couple of wickets, dismissing Labuschagne and Green, but Australia were able to score 78 runs in 26 overs.

It will be interesting to see how long Australia bat in the post-lunch session. Will they have a dash after lunch and score some quick runs before declaring with a lead of around 425?
