After bowling all out to Australia for a massive score on the board the Indian pacers took a sigh of relief, it was reluctantly late as the early destruction was doneby the batsmen. Tim Paine scored a decent half-century and contribution from the tail-enders gave the required torque to end at 369 all out by the end of the first session of Day-2.
The fairy tale for the debutant Natrajan continues as he ends with 3 wickets, adding on another impressive debutant Washington Sundar credited 3 wickets in his account and 3 more to Shardul Thakur making them the top pick bowler sharing responsibility shoulder-to-shoulder.
Considering the burden on the board, Rohit Sharma began the chase along with Shubman Gill, which failed to last as India suffered an early loss in the form of Gill (7) burying India in some serious pressure. Nonetheless, Rohit began(44) to steer the ship with his abilities and serious experience and went on smashing the Aussie pacers, But ended up with a poor rash shot to Lyon in the 20th over.
With the very little game happening, the rain had ruined the match and the game was interrupted in between due to constant pouring and completely washed out the Day-2 with absolutely no results at the end of the day. Leaving Ajinkya Rahane batting at 2* and Pujara 8* at 62/2 at stumps.
If conditions suit to continue the game further tomorrow India will gas their vehicle to move forward and get closer to the mountain's huge target and aim to create their supreme lead.
