Left-arm spinner Steve O'Keefe claimed six wickets to help Australia skittle out India for 105 as the hosts conceded a 155-run first innings lead in the opening Test in Pune on Friday.

The hosts, who went to lunch at 70 for 3 on day two, witnessed a dramatic collapse from 94 for 3 at India's newest Test venue which has seen considerable turn from the beginning.

Opener Lokesh Rahul top-scored with a gritty 64 as O'Keefe returned with career-best figures of 6 for 35.
