New Delhi: India bowlers put on a disciplined show as hosts earned a commanding position against visitors at the end of the second session of the second Test against Australia of the four-match series at Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on Friday.

At Tea, Australia's score read 199/6 with Peter Handscomb (36*) and Pat Cummins (23*) holding fort for the visitors.

Resuming the innings at 94/3, Australia started well as well et batter Usman Khawaja slammed Indian bowlers all around the ground while taking singles at regular intervals.

Handscomb then joined hands with Pat Cummins to keep Australia's scoreboard moving to put 199/6 at the time of Tea.
