India: 248/6 from 91 overs; Wriddhiman Saha (16*), Ravindra Jadeja at stump.
Australia have managed to rein India back on a day when the visitors picked up wickets in regular intervals, to restrict India to 248 for 6 at the end of Day 2.
While the Indians dominated the first day's play from the second session onwards, it is Steve Smith and co, who will appear more satisfied at the end of Day 2.
Spinner Nathan Lyon was the pick of the bowlers, as Australia removed the Indian top order, with six wickets.
Opener KL Rahul (60) was the pick of the Indian batsmen, while Cheteshwar Pujara (57) gave him good support at the other end.
Stand-in captain Ajinkya Rahane also provided some resistance, but he fell a little short of his half century, scoring 46.
However, Australia clawed their way back, with Lyon removing Pujara, Rahane, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Karun Nair.
