New Delhi: Australia spinner Nathan Lyon believes they stand a good chance to sign off the tour with a win since it will be difficult for India to chase even a small target of 100 runs.

"We need to bat well tomorrow. Even a 100-run target would be difficult to chase on this track. The wicket is going up and down. We need to bat well and hopefully get a lead of 150-200 runs. It will help us to put the Indians under some pressure," Lyon told reporters after second day's play.

The Australian bowlers, led by Lyon (5/94), troubled the Indian batsmen as the hosts finished the day two at 266 for eight in the fourth and final Test.
