Mohammed Siraj dismissed two Australian batsmen within an over to bring India back in the game on Day 4 of the Brisbane Test.

Indian pacer Mohammed Siraj led India's comeback on Day 4 of the Brisbane Test as he picked two key wickets inside an over during the first session of the day. 

Australia looked to be cruising to a big second-innings lead, with the side scoring at a significantly fast pace due to the possibility of showers throughout Day 4 and 5 in Brisbane.

However, this became their nemesis as the side lost wickets at quick intervals. In the 31st over of the game, Siraj dismissed Marnus Labuschagne (25 off 22 delivery) as the batsman edged a shot towards the slips.

Merely three deliveries later, Siraj sent Matthew Wade back to the pavilion too. He was caught down the leg side by Rishabh Pant.

Earlier, David Warner (48), who was looking set for a big innings after a number of low scores since his comeback in the series, was dismissed by debutant Washington Sundar.

India had scored 336 in the first innings, thanks largely to Sundar (62) and Shardul Thakur (67), who added 123 runs for the seventh-wicket partnership.
