Getting the eight wicket in the morning was a tough job for the Indian cricket team and the Kangaroos went on to score a decent 380 from a struggling 150. Despite great efforts from Ravichandran Ashwin who bagged seven wickets for the first time in an innings in test cricket, the rest of the bowlers failed miserably. Dropping Pragnyan Ojha could have been a grave mistake on the Indian teams side.
Returning the ball with the bat was not an easy task for Indian side too. Sehwag failed successfully another time in a row after he got dismissed in Pattison's bowling. The Australian bowling attack was a single man show too. Pattison managed to send back Vijay and Pujara to the pavillion too. Pujara and Sachin had a decent partnership going before the former was dismissed unfortunately. Kohli and Sachin have an unbeaten 77 partnership currently taking the score to 182/3 at the end of day 2 while the OZ side has packed up the first innings at 380 after all the bastsmen were dismissed. it is this partnership that India should build on the score. How long will they last? Will we reach a score with a good lead for the Australian side?
