India lost their first test match against Australia by 333 runs and now, the second long format match has started yesterday. At the beginning of the match which was staged at Bangalore Stadium, India won the toss and came to bat first. Basically, team India was destroyed in first Test by Aussie spinners named O’Keefe and Lyon. Though, the ground of Pune was made for spin attack and the Blues failed to face Aussie spinners so, BCCI made Bangalore field for good competition. But however, the same things has repeated yesterday at Bangalore where Indian batting line up was destroyed by only Lyon who took eight wickets at the end of the day. Due to the reason, India got packet by scoring just 189 runs in their first innings.

Earlier the series against Australia, most of the Indians stated that Aussie will be outnumbered in the series but in the first match, Aussie was quite successful than the Blues and still lead the series by 1 – 0. And it seems that they are going to win the second one too. No doubt, the Blues batting line up is still world’s top class but in front of Australia, they are so dim. In the second match, India started to bat with Rahul and Mukund where their partnership was broken in 11 runs and Starc made the first stroke. Later, Pujara came up and stay for quite long but scored only 17 runs and got out. Most unfortunate matter was their skipper Virat got lbw by when he scored just 12 runs. Though, he applied for review but the decision still went to the Aussie side. Only, Rahul who was one of the two opener played till the last and scored highest 90 runs for the team. In first match, O’Keefe took six wickets but in second match, he took just one. Rest eight wickets were taken by Lyon.

So, finally the first innings of India was finished by scoring just 189 runs and they could not completed the first day. They made just more than two session and at the end of the day, Aussie players were on the crease and Warner and Renshaw finished the day successfully for Australia.
