India were 182 for three in their first innings at stumps on the second day of the first cricket
Test against Australia on Saturday. Sachin Tendulkar, 71 not out, and Virat Kohli, 50 off 84 balls, are still there in the middle for India and the first session will be vital.

India trail by 198 runs with 7 wickets remaining and James Pattinson has been the only Australian bowler to make an impact in the match so far. Peter Siddle, Nathan Lyon and Mitchell Starc have been rendered ineffective by the pitch and the Indian batsmen.

Day Three promises to be, in the worlds of Allan Border, 'moving day.'

Which side will come out on top?
