India's spinners grabbed nine wickets for 175 runs in 65.5 overs to set up hopes of a four-day victory, but were left frustrated by a stubborn last-wicket stand of 57 between Moises Henriques and Nathan Lyon.
Australia found themselves battling for survival in the face of a 192-run deficit following India's surge to 572, and India were lifted by R Ashwin's five wickets, but Henriques and Lyon ensured the match would go into the final day.
