Resuming the day from their overnight score of 191/7, the hosts managed to add 44 runs before the Indian pace duo of Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami sprang into action to get the final three wickets.
As soon as the new ball was taken this morning, Bumrah got rid of the overnight batsman Mitchell Starc (8) to claim his third wicket, before rain interrupted play for a while.
From there on it was just a matter of time as Shami, who went wicketless on Day 2, ended Head's 167-ball vigil by getting him nicked behind to stumper Rishabh Pant, for 72.
For the visitors, Bumrah and off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin emerged the wrecker-in-chiefs with three wickets apiece while Ishant and Shami bagged two scalps.
Brief Scores: India- 1st innings 250 (Cheteshwar Pujara 123, Rohit Sharma 37; Josh Hazlewood 3/52) vs Australia - 1st innings 235 (Travis Head 72, Peter Handscomb 34; Jasprit Bumrah 3/47, Ravichandran Ashwin 3/57).
