Still reeling from a thumping 333-run defeat in the first Test in Pune, India will face a tough battle when they face a resurgent Australian side on Saturday in the second Test at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

After the debacle in Pune, India will need to put in a much improved effort in all departments. The visitors will be banking on Steve O'Keefe and Nathan Lyon, who dismantled the Indian batting line-up not once but twice. On the other hand, the Indian spinners will have to replicate the results their counterparts produced in Pune if they want to ruffle a few feathers.

Despite the one-sided nature of the victory, India legend Sachin Tendulkar backed the beleaguered hosts to mount a comeback in the series. “It was a tough Test for us. But it is a part and parcel of the game. The defeat (in the first Test) does not mean that the series is lost, the series is still wide open,” the batting legend was quoted as saying by NDTV.com. “That is what makes sport interesting. There are good moments and there are tough moments but it all about how you stand back on your feet again and compete again. I have no doubt that the Indian team is going to come back and compete really hard.”

Whether Kohli's men can match up to Tendulkar's words remains to be seen. But it is clear that it will be a intriguing match-up. Fans wanting to catch the action live in the stadium can buy season tickets ranging from Rs 500 to Rs 600, enabling the holder to watch all the five days. While tickets can be bought at the Chinnaswamy Stadium itself, they are also also available on BookMyShow, the exclusive ticketing partner.
