India Vs Australia Day 5 Live Streaming, Ind vs Aus 2013 1st Test
A defiant unbeaten half century by debutant Moises Henriques (75) during an unbroken last wicket stand of 57 with Nathan Lyon has delayed India's victory charge with Australia enjoying a lead of 40 runs.
Australia made 232-9 after 83 overs at stumps on the fourth day in their second innings after having bowled out India for 572 - a deficit of 192 - in the first Test at MA Chidambaram Stadium on Monday.
India appeared to cruising to an innings victory inside four days but the last wicket pair had other ideas having come together when 17 runs were needed to make India bat again.
But Henriques showed character to spearhead a magnificent rearguard recovery which brought some respectability to their total and helped Australia avert the ignominy of an innings defeat with the help of some lusty blows from tailenders Pattinson, Starc and Lyon.
Henriques who completed his twin fifty by swatting Harbhajan for one of his two sixes, the other coming off Ashwin, faced 124 balls and hit six boundaries during his fighting knock.
Ravichandran Ashwin was the scourge of the Australians once again claiming five for 90 and match bag of 12 for 193 so far opening the attack after the spinners were thrown the new ball by Dhoni.
Harbhajan and Jadeja bowled in tandem with Ashwin to exploit the rough edges on a pitch which turned from day one to pick up two wickets apiece.
Earlier, a majestic double century by skipper MS Dhoni (224) gave India a matchwinning lead of 192 after the hosts were dismissed for 572 in the morning session.
The Australian batsmen displayed a positive approach with Shane Watson leading the way by hammering a six off Harbhajan as India employed an attacking field.
But his dismissal in the last ball before lunch with the ball looping in the air for Sehwag to take a catch running from slip off Ashwin gave an indication of what was to come in the remainder of the day.
Cowan (32) and David Warner (23) played watchfully while Clarke (31) batted aggressively as they made a bold bid to thwart India's victory charge.
Phillip Hughes fell for a duck caught by Sehwag as he hung his bat to avoid a nasty bounce from a Jadeja delivery.
But Ashwin perhaps put the final nail in the Australia coffin when he trapped the Australian skipper leg before.
It was all over bar the shouting after Australia half their batsmen for 121 followed by Clarke ten runs later.
But Henriques has fashioned a miraculous recovery and restored Australia's dented pride.
India took the second new with Australia on 216-9 but pacer Ishant Sharma failed to dislodge the last pair.
However, with three sessions remaining, he may have only delayed the inevitable which is an Indian victory.
