Virat Kohli's team hold a 2-1 series lead and are perfectly placed to complete a breakthrough series win at the SCG, where the final Test starts on Thursday.

Rain is forecast for day five but not of the biblical proportions that is likely to be required to help Australia avoid defeat.

Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins had nearly two days in the field as India piled up 7 for 443 and were then back out again by the final session of the third day after Australia folded for 151 in their first innings.

Having set a daunting victory target of 399 shortly before lunch, Virat Kohli's team attacked with precision and intensity to leave Australia on life support at the end of a muggy and overcast day at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Travis Head and Paine put up some resistance before Cummins ensured it went into a fifth day.

India needed just 27 balls to wrap up victory on day five of the second Test against Australia, their first Test win in Melbourne since 1981.

"We think we've got the best group of players available to us at the moment and we'll pick the best combination for that group that we think will win the last Test", he said.

In contrast, India were disciplined with rock solid number three Cheteshwar Pujara scoring another century and Kohli showing restraint and composure, while debutant Mayank Agarwal impressed at the top of the order with 76 in his first Test knock.

Left-arm spinner Jadeja later returned to dismiss the recalled Mitchell Marsh and keeper-captain Tim Paine to leave Australia relying on their lower order.

"Now our backs are up against the wall, and Pat and I and Josh (Hazlewood) are going to come out tomorrow and we're going to have to fight", Lyon added.
