At the end of the second day of the test match between India and Australia being played in Bengaluru, the Australian side has taken a lead of 48 runs over India. The Australian batting side played with confidence and two of their batsman Matt Renshaw and Shaun Marsh scored half-centuries. The Indian side could only take 6 wickets, with the best bowling performance coming from Ravindra Jadeja who took 3 wickets for 49 runs in his 17 overs. The Australian side was trailing India’s score by 149 runs on Day 1, and by scoring 197 runs on Day 2, the Australian side has now taken a lead of 48 runs over India.
In another development in the world of cricket, Indian batsman Rohit Sharma has said that he is okay if the team wants him to open in Tests. Sharma is back in action after he was injured and had to stay away from cricket for around four months. He made his comeback during Mumbai’s match against Andhra at the SSN ground in the Vijay Hazare Trophy on Saturday. “In Tests, if they’re going to ask me, I will think about it. It’s not that I’m going to say no to it. You have to think before every decision you make. Like, when the ODI opening position came to me, the team wanted me to bat there. There was a slot available and they wanted me there because they thought my game will suit opening the innings,” said Rohit.
