Australia bowled out for 530 at tea

Melbourne, De Dec 27 (IANS) Captain Steven Smith smashed a brilliant 192 – his third successive century – as Australia were bowled out for a mammoth 530 in their first innings at tea on day two of the third Test against India at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) here Saturday.

India’s ineptness at removing the tail once again cost them dear as pacer Ryan Harris plundered 74 off 90 balls and together with his skipper added 106 runs for the eighth wicket.
Mohammed Shami was the pick of the bowlers taking four wickets while Umesh Yadav and Ravichandran Ashwin picked up three each.
