India will resume Day 2 of the second Test against Australia at MCG with a score of 36/1. Shubman Gill and Cheteshwar Pujara are the batsmen at the tuck. The Indian team led by Ajinkya Rahane ended Day 1 in the driver’s seat. Indian bowling led by Jasprit Bumrah and Ravichandran Ashwin shared seven wickets among them when Australia was thrown out for 195 in the first innings. While Bumrah was the most successful bowler for the visitors with four wickets, Ashwin was also not too behind when he returned with three wickets. Debutant Mohammed Siraj was responsible for two wickets. In response, Australia struck early and Mitchell Starc held opener Mayank Agarwal’s leg earlier in the first over with a brilliant in-swinging delivery. But then young Shubman Gill teamed up with the ever-reliable Cheteshwar Pujara to help India finish well on stumps, with 159 runs behind Australia. (LIVE SCORECARD)
