This was expected, but not in as domineering a manner as things have panned out. In spite of India’s inability to overcome the Englishmen at home, India was very much anticipated that India would have it much easier against the Aussies, considering their inexperience in Indian conditions...
MS Dhoni’smen hardly put a foot wrong as they went 2-0 up following their smashing innings victory over the hapless Aussies at Hyderabad. It was the kind of performance that would reinstate some of the lost faith in Team India and their ability to dominate at least in home conditions.
First things first, Murali Vijay must consider himself extremely lucky to have been picked in the starting eleven for the Hyderabad Test. He played two exceedingly poor shots at Chennai, and even in the matches that he played prior to that he was far from impressive.

Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara slammed unbeaten tons as India batted out Australia from the Second Test at Hyderabad. At stumps on Day 2, India are in a dominant position of 311 for 1 with a first innings lead..
