Day 4 Round-up: Shoulders dropped and bowlers ran out of answers as India, following an Australian onslaught, braced up for another battle of survival on the final day of the Test series after the hosts went 348 runs in front on the fourth day of the Sydney Test - putting an Indian win virtually out of context.

The Aussies, thanks to Joe Burns' 39-ball 66 and captain Steven Smith's 71 off 70, ended the day at 251 for 6 after bowling the visitors out for 475 to take a decent first-innings lead of 97. Virat Kohli was dismissed for 147 by Ryan Harris.
