AUSTRALIA v INDIA DAY 2

Score: India 7(dec)-622, Australia 0-24


Man of the moment: Rishabh Pant the 21-year-old became the youngest wicketkeeper-batsman to ever hit a Test century against Australia and took full toll of a tiring attack with some extravagant strokes.

Stat of the day: Mitchell Starc failing to bowl a maiden in his 26 overs, the most overs bowled by an Australian in a innings in a home test without a maiden since Australia reverted to six-ball overs in 1979-80.

Summary: Even with three days to go, it now seems certain India will celebrate a historic first series win in Australia. The highly rated home quartet of Australian bowlers were made to look impotent as Cheteshwar Pujara drained them of energy before left-handers Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja upped the tempo. The best Australia can hope for is a draw.
