India ended the second day at 277 for 5 to secure a handy 82-run lead, with Rahane going strong on 104 and Jadeja on 40, the two having added what might prove to be a game-changing 104-run partnership for the unbroken sixth wicket.

Gavaskar was impressed with Rahane's field placements as three Australian batsmen— Marnus Labuschange, Steve Smith, and Travis Head—were all caught by fielders deployed at different positions.

India vs Australia, Highlights, 2nd Test at Perth, Day 5, Full Cricket Score: Australia win by 146 runs, level series 1-1
India vs Australia, Live Score: Just a little over an hour is what India could muster and that was never going to last once Vihari was dismissed. Pant followed and the fragile tail with which some described of comprising four number 11s barely hung around. All square as we head to Melbourne for the boxing day Test. The four-match series is nicely set up. The Australians applaud the crowd. It has taken some time for them to register a Test victory. The year 2018 has been rather gloomy finally has something to rejoice. First win for Tim Paine. Time for them to cherish it.

India vs Australia, Live Score: Vihari is playing Lyon really well. While on back foot, he is defending well but defending on the off side. One of the deliveries hits the crack and goes away.
India vs Australia, Highlights, 2nd Test at Perth, Day 3, Full Cricket Score: Hosts reach 132/4 at stumps, lead by 175 runs
India vs Australia, Live Score: Loud appeal from the Indians for a caught behind down the leg side. Kohli doesn't review Dharmasena's on field call and it seems like a right one. HotSpot confirms it came off the Paine's back thigh. Kohli and Paine exchange a friendly chatter. Paine has a smile. Batsmen meet mid-pitch before the last ball of the over. Ishant goes past Khawaja's edge. Pant and slips run across to other end. Indians desperate for a wicket. But they will have to wait as stumps for the third day have been called.

India vs Australia, Live Score: India end on 172/3, trail by 154 as second day comes to close. 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.
India vs Australia, Highlights, 2nd Test at Perth, Day 1, Full Cricket Score: Hosts reach 277/6 at stumps
India vs Australia Live Score: Close of play – Day 1 Another see-saw day of cricket. Pretty good for an inaugural day of Test cricket at the new Perth. Nothing like our good ole WACA, but the drop in pitch has offered enough to be interested about. That rip-snoter from Bumrah to Tim Paine with the second new ball will remain in memory for a long, long time. Forget Tim Paine, I might have nightmare of it. However, the Australian captain survived that delivery and remained unbeaten till the end of the day. India have their task cut out for the second day – which is wipe out the Australian, if possible before 300.
