India lost two early wickets after their attack swept through the Australian lower order in the fourth Test in Brisbane.
Thakur got his second victim of the day in his next over, Pat Cummins falling lbw for two as the Australians fell to 315 for eight.
Chasing 369, India only saw out six overs until the first wicket fell when Shubman Gill’s thick edge of Cummins found Steve Smith at second slip for seven.
Sharma fell before tea, holing out to Mitchell Starc off Lyon for 44 as India looked in trouble at 60 for two.
The tourists put on two runs for no loss with Cheteshwar Pujara (8no) and Ajinkya Rahane (2no) in the next six overs until the weather intervened and a heavy storm hit Brisbane, with the umpires calling stumps early due to the poor conditions.
