At the opening day of the 2nd test match, India bowled well and made Australia to declare at 237 for 9. The hosts started their innings and made 5 for 0 in in response and trailing with 232 runs.
Michael Clarke scored 91 runs before he was bowled out and declared the innings. Bhuveshwar Kumar had a successful day as he grabbed three wickets in the morning. Clarke and Matthew Wade batted out the afternoon without loss before Australia lost their five wickets for 29 runs.
Australia won the toss and elected to bat and lost their openers soon after Bhuvneshwar produced a good display of swing bowling. David Warner inside-edged a delivery jagging back in to become Bhuvneshwar’s first Test wicket, and in the next over Ed Cowan was struck in line with middle stump when beaten by an incutter. Bhuvneshwar get his third wicket as Watson was beaten for movement and the lack of bounce to be struck on the back leg in front of off stump.
Ishant Sharma turned in a wicketless opening before getting an out-of-sorts Phillip Hughes to edge a cut to Dhoni for 19. Wade and Clarke made a solid partnership before the hosts found a breakthrough when Bhuvneshwar took an athletic catch of Wade. Moises Henriques was bowled by a peach from Jadeja that ripped past the bat to hit the stumps. Jadeja then added the debutant Glenn Maxwell (13), who edged a cut to Dhoni, after which Harbhajan claimed Peter Siddle for 0.
