India vs Australia: On the second day of the first Test match being played in Nagpur, India has taken a lead of 144 runs over Australia.
By the end of the game, India made 321 for seven wickets in 114 overs.
That’s it! India 321/7 after 114 overs at stumps on Day 2, lead Australia (177) by 144 runs (Jadeja 66, Axar 52; Murphy 5/82)
Ravindra Jadeja (66) and Axar Patel (52) added a valuable unbeaten 81 runs for the eighth wicket to take India’s lead to 144 runs against Australia at close on the second day. Australia started the final session on a positive note by removing centurion Rohit Sharma (120) and KS Bharat (8) with the second new ball. But after that the two left-handed all-rounders frustrated the Aussie attack with regular boundaries. India are in the driver’s seat at the moment.

Rohit has become the first Indian cricketer to score a century in all three formats of cricket, Test match, ODI and T20 while being the captain.
Todd Murphy ended his spell for the day with a maiden over. Terrific day for the off-spinner as he returned figures of 5 for 82 in 36 overs.
Have been doing well with the bat for the last one year. That confidence is coming in handy. My technique – I always knew it was good. I work on it when I get a break. Work with the coaching staff. They tell me that I have the ability, so I try to contribute. When you go in to bat you find some difficulty (on that pitch), but it gets easier after spending some time. The talk with Jadeja was to not lose focus. Till the time we bat tomorrow the pitch will play well, and when we get the chance to bowl – we’ll find help (laughs).
