Melbourne: Rain brings play to stop as an early stumps was called and India ended the day on 277/5 with a lead of 82 runs, thanks to Ajinkya Rahane’s century.

Rahane scored his 12th Test century, remaining unbeaten on 104.

The 32-year-old further stitched an unbeaten partnership of 104 runs with Ravindra Jadeja (40*), helping the visitors take a lead of 82 runs.

They had resumed at 36 for one on Day 2 of the second Test in Melbourne with debutant Shubman Gill 28 not out and Cheteshwar Pujara on seven.

Gill survived a few nervy moments in the morning before being dismissed for 45. Pujara followed soon after, both snared by Pat Cummins.

Rahane was joined by Rishabh Pant (29) after the Lunch break, whose counter-attack swung the momentum India’s way.

Scorecard: India 277 for 5 (Rahane 104*, Gill 45, Jadeja 40*) lead Australia 195 all out by 82 runs.
