Sydney Test: Indian domination continues on Day 2, declare at 622/7
Sydney, Jan 4 (CRICKETNMORE): Brilliant batting efforts from Cheteshwar Pujara and Rishabh Pant, along with a useful contribution from Ravindra Jadeja, helped India continue their domination on the second day of the fourth and final cricket Test as Australia trailed by 598 runs here on Friday.
In reply to India's first innings score of 622/7 declared, Australia were at 24/0 with openers Usman Khawaja (5) and Marcus Harris (19) at the crease when the umpires dislodged the bails for the day.
India could have put the Australians under further pressure if wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant had grabbed a regulation catch of Khawaja off pacer Mohammad Shami.
The day belonged to Pujara and Pant, who dominated the Australian bowlers with their rather contrasting batting styles.
