Match scorecard

Stand-in skipper Steve Smith remained unbeaten for the series as Australia closed day two of the second Test 187 runs adrift of India on 221 for four.

Smith, 25, who replaced the injured Michael Clarke as captain, made 65.

India resumed on 311-4 but lost six wickets for 97 runs before lunch as paceman Josh Hazlewood, 23, finished with 5-68 on Test debut.

Wicketkeeper Brad Haddin equalled the Australia record for most dismissals in a Test innings with six catches.

He shares the record with Wally Grout, Rod Marsh and Ian Healy.

Australia lost three wickets in the afternoon, including opener David Warner - who scored twin centuries in Adelaide - caught off a top edge for 29.

But Smith, in his 24th Test, helped the hosts back into the match as he danced down the wicket to hit spinner Ravichandran Ashwin for two sixes over long-on in one over en route to his 10th half-century.

He made an unbeaten 162 and 52 as Australia won the first Test by 48 runs.
