India vs Australia Second Test at Chandigarh

IND v AUS, 2nd Test, Chandigarh, Day 5: India thrash Australia by 320 runs (1:0)

Paceman Zaheer Khan captured three wickets in four balls Tuesday as India completed a comprehensive 320-run victory in the second cricket test against Australia to take a 1-0 lead in the four-match series.
Australia, which resumed the morning at 141-5 chasing an unlikely 516, lasted 18.4 overs on the fifth day after being rocked by Khan, who finished with 3-71. The defeat was Australia's seventh-heaviest by runs, eclipsing the 307-run loss to South Africa in 1969-70.
Khan ensured it would be a quick finish when he crashed through Brad Haddin's weak defensive push to the sixth ball of the day and the wicketkeeper left with 37. The batsman's stumps were shattered and so were Australia's hopes of saving the game after an 84-run partnership between Haddin and Michael Clarke.
Johnson (26) stayed with Clarke for 50 runs, hitting some impressive drives until he popped a simple catch back to the bowler Amit Mishra. The only bright spot for Australia was Clarke's half-century, but he finished the match when he pulled to Virender Sehwag off Mishra on 69.
Australia was reduced to 58-5 after tea on the fourth day to end its unlikely chances of victory. Harbhajan Singh's three wickets either side of the break put India on track and Ishant Sharma chipped in with two victims before the short recovery of Clarke and Haddin.
The first test in Bangalore was drawn and India will head to Delhi for the third match starting Oct. 29 looking to wrap up the series and regain the Border-Gavaskar trophy.

IND v AUS, 2nd Test, Chandigarh, Day 4: Harbhajan strikes early for India

India threw down the gauntlet to Australia on the penultimate day of the second Border-Gavaskar Test, setting Ricky Ponting's side a formidable target of 516 for victory.
Off-spinner Harbhajan Singh then put even more pressure on the tourists by removing openers Matthew Hayden and Simon Katich after the pair had made a determined start to their second innings. Hayden, who has struggled on the tour, was dismissed leg before for 29, while Katich was caught by Sachin Tendulkar off Harbhajan for 20. Tea was taken at the fall of Katich's wicket, with Australia in a spot of bother at 50 for two.
Earlier in the day, a century from Gautam Gambhir (104) and half-centuries from Virender Sehwag (90) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (68 not out) had helped India declare their second innings on 314 for three - an overall lead of 515.

IND v AUS, 2nd Test, Chandigarh, Day 3: India lead by 301 runs against Australia

Leg-spinner Amit Mishra celebrated his Test debut with a five-for as India spared Australia the humiliation of following on only to tighten the noose around their neck on day three of the second cricket match on Sunday.
Mishra emerged as the wrecker-in-chief as India shot out Australia for 268, carving out a 201-run first innings lead. Despite having the Aussies at his mercy, stand-in skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni refused to enforce follow-on, deciding instead to set them a target and unleash the two-pronged spin attack on a wearing track.
India added exactly 100 runs without any loss in the final session to stretch their overall lead to 301 and openers Virender Sehwag (53) and Gautam Gambhir (46) will return on Monday to further swell the tally and take the match away from Australia.
Earlier, resuming at overnight score of 102 for four, Australia rode both luck and pluck before eventually folding for 268 -- still 201 runs behind India's first innings total of 469

IND v AUS, 2nd Test, Chandigarh, Day 2: India takes control on day two

India assumed a commanding position at stumps on day two of the second Test against Australia in Mohali on Saturday.
Australia, replying to India's first innings of 469, reached the close of play at 4 for 102, having lost Michael Clarke (23) to the bowling of debutant spinner Amit Mishra on the second last delivery of the day.
Earlier, Sourav Ganguly starred with the bat for the Indians with an innings of 102, while stand-in captain MS Dhoni contributed what was often exciting 92.

IND v AUS, 2nd Test, Chandigarh: Tendulkar guides India to safety

Sachin Tendulkar eclipsed Brian Lara’s world record for most Test runs to help India reach 311 for five on the first day of the second Test against Australia.
Tendulkar reached the milestone on 15, surpassing the 11,953 runs Lara scored before he retired from international cricket in 2007. Tendulkar hit 88 after Australian left-arm paceman Mitchell Johnson led a splendid fightback on a good batting pitch.
India, who began well after winning the toss, wobbled after Johnson’s double strike before tea saw three wickets tumble for 17 runs. Tendulkar added 142 runs for the fifth wicket with Saurav Ganguly until he fell short of his 40th Test hundred. Ganguly was 54 not out at stumps with Ishant Sharma on two.
Opening batsman Gautam Gambhir scored 67 and added 70 runs with Virender Sehwag (35) for the first wicket and 76 with Rahul Dravid (39) for the next. Johnson ended the day with three for 68. The first match of the four-Test series ended in a draw.

IND v AUS, 2nd Test, Chandigarh: Heavy rains hamper ground preparations at Mohali

Gale and heavy rains in the early hours on Wednesday once again affected the ground preparations as the PCA ground at Mohali, which will host the second Test between India and Australia on Friday, was left flooded.
"The sudden change in weather has somewhat affected our preparations. Our covers were blown up and outfield was left flooded," Chairman of BCCI Grounds and Pitches Committee and PCA curator, Daljit Singh said. He said the practice pitches were also left wet though luckily "the match wicket was saved". "We are putting in our best efforts to give a good wicket for the upcoming game," Singh said.
"The north westerly gale which lasted for over 30 minutes had maximum wind speed of 76 kmph. It was accompanied by heavy rains and hailstorm," Director of the Chandigarh based Meteorological Department, Chattar Singh told PTI.
The positive side was that a bright sun shine had come out during the day today raising hopes that the weather was holding good, Daljit said.
However, Chattar Singh said that there were a few weather systems that were active over the region which could again result in a few spell of rains until tomorrow.
