Veteran Indian leg-spinner Anil Kumble wrecked Australia to leave the fourth and final Test hanging in the balance after 18 wickets fell on a spiteful pitch during the second day's play on Thursday.

India, who crashed for 104 earlier in the day, hit back to bowl Australia out for 203 with Kumble taking 5-90 and Murali Kartik 4-44 on a wicket where the ball turned and jumped to make life miserable for batsmen.

Trailing by 99 runs on the first innings, India were 5-0 in their second knock by stumps, needing a big score on Friday to put Australia under pressure and secure a face-saving win.

Australia enjoy an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series after winning the first and third Tests. The second Test was drawn.
