Just few moments later of the 1st session of the second day at Pune Test, India got packet by scoring just 105 runs where Aussie bowlers almost did the impossible things. After that, team Australia came to bat for the second innings and according to the latest news, Aussie team finished the second day by losing four wickets and scored 143 runs so far. Aussie captain Steve Smith and Mitchell Marsh are on the crease with 59 and 21 runs respectively.

Basically, Steve Smith was so lucky yesterday where he got almost three lives from Indian fielders. He was about to get out for three times but each and every times, Indian fielder missed that opportunities. Murali Vijay missed the first chance and rest two were missed by Abhinav Mukund. So, getting three lives, Steve Smith is still on the crease with his 59 runs and it would be tough for team India to get another chance. So, Aussie finished the second day of the first Test by added 143 runs and the lead end up for the day is 298.

At the first innings of the Test, team Australia fallen into batting disaster in front of Indian spinners. Basically, team India made a spin favoured crease and as usual Aussie batsmen are the best for pace attack. They used to play well spin attack as well. But in India where their crease was made for just spin. there Australia fallen into pressure to understand their bowling line and Indian spinners took the chance and packet Aussie in 260 runs in the first innings. Though, Indian skipper Kohli did not think that their trap could fall upon them. They also started to lose wickets since the beginning of the innings where Australia spinner O’Keefe took total six wickets and destroyed Indian long batting line up though the Blues captain Kohli was out by speedster Starc with 0 run. He just faced two balls. After long time he made a duck.

Now, Australia will start the 3rd day of the test with good balance and they will try to make a huge figure of runs that could be almost impossible to chase even for India. Besides, India has only a few record to chase more than 400 runs in the second innings and so, Aussie would take the chance to beat India.
