Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli slammed unbeaten fifties to lift India in the Chennai Test after Murali Vijay and Virender Sehwag put up a dismal show. Cheteshwar Pujara too batted well to score 44. India finished Day 2 at 182/3 in reply to Australia’s 380.
Ravichandran Ashwin’s career-best bowling figure of 7/103, helped India restrict Australia at 380. Clarke made 130, while Jadeja took two wickets. Despite losing Vijay and Sehwag early, Indian batsmen did well to counter the Australian bowling attack.
Tendulkar is batting on 71, while Kohli is on 50. James Pattinson has taken all three wickets in the Indian innings.
