SummaryDebutant Moises Henriques delayed the inevitable with a fighting undefeated 75.

missing the line of the delivery.

The final session also started on a bright note when Ashwin got one to turn sharply as Clarke was trapped on the backfoot with a ball keeping low.

With the departure of Australian captain, there were some premature celebrations in the stands.

While Henriques looked confident at one end, Peter Siddle was bowled by Jadeja to make it seven down.

However James Pattinson (11, 26 balls) provided some resistance which also helped Henriques to score a few runs in the process.

Finally, left-hander Pattinson became Ashwin's fourth victim in the second innings as he edged one to Sehwag in the slips. The senior opener took a judged catch low onto his left.

Mitchell Starc hit a couple of boundaries but didn't show intent to stay back for a long period as he tried to loft Ashwin to give an easy catch to Tendulkar in the long-on region.

Once Starc was gone, Australia still needed 17 runs to avoid the follow-on but Henriques and Lyon fought well to live for another day.
