Sydney/IBNS: A splendid knock by young wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant and a half-century by Cheteshwar Pujara helped India in the run chase in the fifth day of the third Test against Australia here on Monday.

While Pant fell for 97 missing his Test hundred, Pujara was bowled out by Josh Hazlewood for 77.

Earlier opening batsman Rohit Sharma had slammed a 52-run knock.

Scoring 244 and 312/6 dec. in two innings, Australia have set a target of 407 for India.

Hazlewood and spin bowler Nathan Lyon picked two Indian wickets each while Sharma was dismissed by Pat Cummins.
