Such an anti-climax! The series will officially be won by India soon. But it would have been more fun achieving it on the ground.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) January 7, 2019
No respite from rain in Sydney as it continues to pour. We are now into the second session and game could be called off anytime from now onwards if it does not stop raining. So, India all set for their historic Test series win in Australia.
The covers are still on at the SCG and lunch break has been taken. So, just like day four, entire first session is washed out. Meanwhile, team India is on the brink of a historic series win.
Hello, and welcome to LatestLY's live coverage of India vs Australia 4th Test day 5.
India dominated the proceedings on the fourth day of the fourth and final Test match against Australia, enforcing the follow-on even as rain and bad light forced umpires to call off play early. Australia were at 6/0 in the second innings and trail by 316 runs while following-on. This is the first time since 2005 that Australia is following-on, thanks to Kuldeep Yadav's brilliant five wicket haul.
Only 25.3 overs were bowled on Sunday and India managed to wrap up the Australian first innings after some defiance from tailenders Mitchell Starc (29), Jose Hazlewood (21) and Pat Cummins (25). Yadav decimated the hosts by picking up his second fifer in Tests and Virat Kohli enforced the follow-on, making Australia bat again.

Usman Khawaja (4) and Marcus Harris (2) then survived some brilliant bowling from Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami before bad light stopped the play and forced the umpires to call for early tea. Since then, there wasn't much improvement with respect to the light and play was suspended. Kuldeep Yadav Gets Maiden Five-Wicket Haul in Australia During Sydney Test; Equals 64-Year-Old Record
