In yet another eventful day of cricket between Australia and India in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, as many as 13 wickets fell down. On the opening day’s play of the 2nd Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground...
Australia recovered nicely to 116 for 3 in 26 overs by Stumps on Day 1 of the Second Test at Sydney. Zaheer Khan brought India back in the game taking three quick wickets with the new ball but a solid partnership between Former Skipper Ricky Ponting and Michael Clarke...
Although India failed to show the intensity with the bat and hence lost the first Test against Australia by 122 runs, the on-field rivalry with players from both sides rubbing each other the wrong was very much there.
As many as 15 wickets went down on the drop-in pitch at the Melbourne Cricket Ground today on Day 3 leaving the 1stTest right in the balance. Australia are in the lead with 230 runs with two wickets in hand and the match could go either way from here.
The Boxing Day Test Match is hanging in the balance and most probably could head towards a climax tomorrow on the fourth day! The final session of play saw India breaking the Ponting-Hussey partnership that was threatening to take the game away.
The second day’s play at MCG saw the Indian bowlers without much fuss cleaning up the Aussie lower order. Zaheer Khan added two more wickets and Ashwin too did the same as the Aussies folded to 333 in their first innings.
Its a perfect position for India as they have the Aussies under pressure at 277 for 6 by the close of the first day's play in the Boxing Day Test at the MCG. The second new ball is only 9 overs old and it has darted around pretty well for the Indians so far.
