Australia’s Steve Smith ended his 16-month wait for a Test hundred on day two of a finely poised third Test against India. Smith scored 131 from 226 balls, his first century since the fourth Ashes Test against England in September 2019. Marnus Labuschagne made 91 but, after he fell, Smith received little support, the final seven wickets falling for 106 as the hosts were dismissed for 338. India battled to 96-2 at the close in Sydney, 242 runs behind.
