Kuldeep walks off after claiming his 2nd five-for in Tests.

Kuldeep Yadav claimed his maiden five-wicket haul in Australia, his second fifer in Test cricket as India bundled out Australia for 300 in the first innings and have also enforced a follow-on. The Chinaman claimed the feat on Day 4 of the final Test in Sydney. (IND vs AUS 4th Test, Day 4 Live Score & Updates)

Kuldeep claimed his maiden Test fifer against West Indies in Rajkot. It would be a proud moment for the chinaman as he claims a maiden fifer on his first Test in Australia. 

Earlier, incessant rain and bad light prevented the start of play on day four of the fourth Test between Australia and India on Sunday.

At the Sydney Cricket Ground, play couldn't commence at the scheduled early 10 am local time start due to bad light and wet conditions from overnight heavy rain.

The light improved in some time and the two umpires stipulated 11 am local time as the start of play, but rain arrived to prevent that from happening.

On days one and two, Cheteshwar Pujara (193) and Rishabh Pant (159 not out) helped India to a grand first innings' total of 622-7 declared.

India have an unassailable 2-1 series' lead after winning the first Test in Adelaide by 31 runs and the third Test in Melbourne by 137 runs. Australia had won the second Test in Perth by 146 runs.
