India vs Australia Live Score, 3rd Test, Day 2: Openers bring up 50, India solid in reply

By hindustantimes.com | Hindustan Times, New Delhi
UPDATED ON JAN 08, 2021 11:19 AM IST

India vs Australia 3rd Test Day 2 live score: Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill have gotten off to a promising start to bring up India’s 50 on Day 2 of the SCG Test. Ravindra Jadeja finished with 4/62 and affected the run out of Steve Smith as Australia were all out for 338 in their first innings. Smith was the star with a 27th Test century but the day has so far belonged equally to India who grabbed eight wickets inside two sessions. Jadeja picked up his fourth dismissing Nathan Lyon for a duck, shortly after Navdeep Saini had taken his second, sending back Mitchell Starc. Meanwhile, Smith brought up his 27th Test century off 201 balls, the eighth against India. After Australia resumed their innings post lunch, Jasprit Bumrah cleaned up their captain Tim Paine with a cracker of a delivery followed by Jadeja yorking Pat Cummins. Before the break, Bumrah had Cameron Green out LBW for his first wicket of the match. Jadeja provided the first breakthrough as he dismissed Marnus Labuschagne for 91 to break the century stand between him and Smith and then Matthew Wade after the rain interval. Smith and Labuschagne had given Australia a solid start before the first rain break. Rain came, rain went away, it came again - it was that kind of a first day of the Test match. We were still some 35 overs short despite extended final session and revised timings. But in the 55 overs of play that was possible, Australia got their noses ahead courtesy a very positive looking Steve Smith and an assured Labuschagne. India did dismiss David Warner early but debutant Will Pucovski rode his luck on his way to a maiden Test fifty. After his departure, Australia’s best pair took over and took them to 166 for 2 at stumps. If the weather clears and rain stays away we are win for a fascinating day of Test cricket in Sydney.
