Aust hang on
Australia survived the final day of the third test against India, finishing on 204-6 in their second innings to earn a draw and keep the series is level at 1-1. Peter Handscomb (72 not out) battled diligently for 261 minutes, forming a key partnership with Shaun Marsh that denied India a victory they appeared on track for in the morning session. ‘‘If there’s anything called momentum in cricket it’s probably with us at the moment. India coming today would have expected to bowl us out. I’m sure they’re hurting a little bit,’’ Australia skipper Steve Smith said. The fourth and final test is in Dharmasala on Saturday.
