2nd Test Match Day 3: India vs Australia Live Streaming
India will be looking to pile on the runs and bat the Aussies out of the match. If the batting line-up performs the way it has been so far against the Aussies, we expect India to take a big lead and declare around tea-time today, giving their bowlers enough time to exploit the pitch on the final two days and carve out back-to-back wins. But let`s first find out what`s happened in the match so far.
It has been a rather one-sided couple of days as India have dominated in all departments. After Australia ended their innings or a meagre 237/9 (yes, they did declare) on Day 1, collapsing from a respectable 208/4 to their eventual total within 17 crucial overs, India began circumspectly.
Sehwag, once again, departed early on Day 2, caught behind for 6 off Siddle. Murali Vijay, who has also been under immense pressure to perform, dug deep as he and Pujara ground out a tough first session that yielded just 49 runs.
The two, having played themselves in arduously and determinedly, began to open up a little in the second session, notching up 106 runs in the 30 overs. Both batsmen had crossed their 50s and were looking strong as the Aussie bowling looked insipid, uninspired and unimpressive.
The third session saw Pujara go after the bowling and Vijay had his patch with a flurry of boundaries and a six as the pair piled on the pressure on the men from down under. They both reached their hundreds confidently and Pujara even smashed a six later in the day to bring up his 150. The duo smashed 151 runs in the final session as India ended the day at a dominant 311/1.
