India vs Australia 4th Test Day 2 Highlights 26 March 2017

Watch India vs Australia cricket highlights today on 26-3-2017. IND vs AUS highlights of the second day of fourth Test played today at Dharamsala. Yesterday Kuldeep Yadav surprised everyone by his left-arm wristspin and gave a new spin to this series where Australia looked dominating. He provided his team with the much-needed hope of getting the better of their fierce opponents. Steven Smith, however, once again showed his grand form by scoring another ton in this series. He saved his team from utter collapse, helping them reach the magical figure of 300 runs in the first innings.

Australian team had lost one wicket at lunch with 131 runs on board. However the next two sessions belonged to Indian bowlers who allowed the batsmen get just 169 runs at the cost of rest of the 9 wickets. It was largely Kuldeep whose bowling puzzled Australian batsmen. He was given opportunity by the stand-in captain Ajinkya Rahane and he proved his choice wasn’t a mistake.

Smith was the only resisting force who scored his third century of the series. This is the sixth time that a visiting batsman has achieved this honor in India. However he didn’t get much help from the other end, where Indian bowlers kept striking with regular intervals. Smith’s 111 runs included 14 fours and no six.

Matthew Wade also contributed with his 57 runs to strengthen his team’s position while Cummins scored 21 runs. Rest of the team failed to show skillful batting on the first day of the fourth Test at Dharamsala.

Young Kuldeep Yadav got 4 wickets in 23 overs and he gave away 68 runs. All these wickets were very crucial for his team. He got the wickets of Warner, Handscomb, Maxwell and Cummins, all very capable batsmen from the opposition. Today Indian will need to achieve some reasonable lead to gain upper hand in this Test.
