India vs Australia, Highlights, 2nd Test at Perth, Day 2, Full Cricket Score: Kohli, Rahane take visitors to 172/3 at Stumps

15:40 (IST)

That brings us to close of day's play. Two of India's best batsmen are back among runs. For Kohli, it was a matter of time his bat started to do the talking. He missed to convert good starts in Adelaide into big runs. It is Rahane who after a very long time looks like finally getting a big one tomorrow. It is also not about the runs he is scoring but the way he is doing that. Looks free of all negativity and relaxed in the middle. The Indian fans have their fingers crossed. 

Australia were punished for inconsistent spell of bowling, especially after Rahane came in. He started to attack and then there was no answer from Paine and Co. They are still 154 runs ahead in the game and as Michael Clarke said at the start of the day , for India to attain stranglehold in the match, they need to score 100 more than Australia's. Paine needs to stop them from getting there. 

We will be back tomorrow at 6.50 am sharp. Till then, take care and bye-bye.  

15:33 (IST)

Australian bowlers toiled hard but Indian batsmen were simply world class. More work for them tomorrow

15:28 (IST)

Absolutely exceptional from King Kohli

15:27 (IST)

Here's what the Prof. thinks

15:24 (IST)

Kohli walks to Rahane and the two pump fists, then walk back together. Job done, atleast for today. Australia will come back again in the morning, and perhaps bowl a tad fuller to Rahane initially. But what about Kohli? He has batted the way only he can. Best batsman in the world for a reason. This Test is hinged on this partnership and day 3 promises to be a ripper!

Assurance in shot selection has been the key for this Indian innings so far after the openers exited. It is always the case with Kohli, but the best thing from Adelaide was that both Pujara and Rahane got into runs, which has helped them bat the way they have today. These two partnerships are India's key in this Test, especially considering how the second innings will be tougher.

STUMPS, Day 2!

Cummins tried hard till the last few seconds of the day to get Virat out. Phew, what a battle we witnessed today. Got another edge off the bat, but the ball landed inches away from second slip. Kohli returns unbeaten on 82 and Rahane on 51.

Lyon's last attempt to get a wicket goes in vain. Bowled 22 overs today, tight lines but could not get a single wicket which should be an achievement for Indian cricket team. Last over of the day coming gup. 

15:15 (IST)

Lyon continues.

Day 1 report: Australia doggedly overcame a green-tinged Perth Stadium pitch in fierce heat to wrest back control of the second test on Friday after India had threatened to take advantage of some favourable bowling conditions on day one.

The hosts, 1-0 down in the four-match series after losing the opener in Adelaide, reached stumps on 277 for six with captain Tim Paine unbeaten on 16 and Pat Cummins 11 not out.

Marcus Harris, Aaron Finch and Travis Head all made half-centuries but none of them was able to really put their foot down on the gas as India pegged the Australians back on a grassy, drop-in wicket that occasionally played a few tricks.

Recalled spin-bowling all-rounder Hanuma Vihari and quick Ishant Sharma claimed two wickets apiece to get the tourists back into the contest after the Australians had won the toss and batted through the first session without losing a wicket.

Harris and Finch put together a 112-run opening partnership before India, playing four seamers with no specialist spinner, separated them when the pitch came roaring to life after lunch.

The Indian tactics of targeting Finch’s pads were rewarded when quick Jasprit Bumrah trapped him lbw for 50 with a searing, full delivery in the midst of a probing spell.

Usman Khawaja, who made an excruciating five off 38 balls, was the second batsman to fall, rashly cutting Umesh Yadav in a desperate attempt to break the shackles after being tied down by the Indian bowlers.

Harris also departed before the second break to a rising delivery from Vihari, the opener steering the ball to first slip to end his 141-ball knock of 70.

India captain Virat Kohli ensured that India maintained the pressure after tea when he snared a spectacular full-stretched, one-handed catch off Sharma to dismiss Peter Handscomb for seven as Australia crashed to 148-4.

Head and Shaun Marsh watchfully dug Australia out of a hole, though, before the latter fell for 45 to a sharp Ajinkya Rahane catch at slip off Vihari. South Australian Head chanced his arm with an 80-ball 58, but needlessly holed out straight after India had taken the second new ball.

“I think when you see the ball seaming off good parts of the wicket, dramatically at times, you need to tighten up but also cash in at other times,” said Finch.

“We know their four quicks are world class and that it was going to be a challenge.”

Vihari praised India’s fight and said the morning session on day two could shape the match.

“Our plan was to be disciplined and I think we did very well in that aspect after bouncing back in all three sessions,” he said.

“I think the first hour tomorrow will be very crucial. If we get them out below 320 then we are right back in the game.”

Most of the 20,746 spectators at the new 60,000-seat stadium spent much of the day seeking refuge under the shelter of the stands with the temperature hitting 39 degrees Celsius.

The test is the first at the ground after a 47-year run at the WACA and Australia will be keen to christen their new home by ending a run of six tests without a victory against an India side seeking a first series win Down Under.
