Australia v India: second Test, day two – as it happened | Sport

02:25

Summary

A day of emergence for India and lost opportunity for Australia. Led by Pat Cummins, the hosts held the upper hand early on when reducing India to 64-3 but from that point on it was all India.

Ajinkya Rahane was magnificent scoring his 12th Test century – and second at the MCG – and it’s unlikely he’s registered one as important. The stand-in skipper rode his luck – Rahane was dropped twice among four dropped catches for the day – and made Australia pay with a sublime, assured offering that isn’t done with yet. After India’s early losses, the middle-order hunted in pairs with Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja each combining with their skipper for meaningful partnerships. Rahane’s current stand with Jadeja is worth 104, with India’s lead stretching out to 82.

With five wickets still in hand, this is an excellent response to the nightmare of Adelaide and India are primed to strike back after their humiliating defeat in the first Test. Australia had a day to forget in the field. The quartet of dropped catches (to make five for the innings) let India off at critical moments while the pace attack that was so lethal in Adelaide remarkably failed to take a wicket under heavy skies with the second new ball. Australia need to muster a response of their own on day three.

Thanks for your company today. Let’s do it all again tomorrow.
