Earlier, Australian quickies bowled out the tourists for 191. In the morning India won the toss and elected to bat. Gautam Gambhir fell for a duck, Rahul Dravid (5) soon followed, while Sehwag (30) and VVS Laxman (2) tried to hang-on. It was left to Tendulkar and Virat Kohli to lead the tourists' recovery at 96-4.

2nd Test: SCG's 100th Test

SCG, Sachin's favorite Australian venue, is hosting its 100th Test match and he is up for the ton of tons. Sachin Tendulkar, having made 51 Test centuries and 48 one-day international tons, has 664 runs at an average of 221.33 in four Tests at the SCG including an unbeaten 241, in his partnership of 353 with VVS Laxman in 2004.

Meanwhile, the Australian captain Michael Clarke has named an unchanged XI for the second Test against India at the SCG starting on Tuesday. India, which lost the series-opening Test in Melbourne last week by 122 runs, have never won a Test series in Australia.

First Test, India vs Australia at MCG

Melbourne Test, Dec 26-30, 2011

1st Test, Day 4: Australia knock out India [IND-AUS:0-1 (1/4)]

James Pattinson (4/53) and Peter Siddle (3/42) tore through India's much-vaunted batting line-up to help Australia register a crushing 122-run win on day four of the first Test at the MCG. India had never chased down a target at the MCG and they had no chance after losing Dravid (10), Laxman (1) and Kohli (0) in a span of 11 runs. Half the side was cleaned up inside 70 runs by Australia's fast men. Pattinson was named man of the match.

Tendulkar top-scored with 32 (46 balls) and left the field to a standing ovation given this is certainly his last Test at the MCG. Earlier resuming on 179/8, with Mike Hussey on 79 and Pattinson three, Australia lost Hussey for 89 after the pair added 18 runs. Pattinson (37 not out from 81 balls) along with the tail, was instrumental in adding 61 vital runs before Australia was bowled out for 240.
1st Test, Day 4: Australia 333 (Cowan 68, Ponting 62, Zaheer 4-77) and 240 (Ponting 60, Hussey 89, Umesh Yadav 4-70) beat India 282 (Tendulkar 73, Dravid 68, Sehwag 67) and 169 (Sachin 32, Ashwin 30) by 122 runs

1st Test, Day 3: India 282 all out, Australia 179/8 at stumps

After India lost the last 8 wickets for 68 to concede a lead of 51, India paceman Umesh Yadav blitzed Australia's top order leaving Ricky Ponting and Mike Hussey, who are under intense pressure for their hold on their Test careers, to do the rescue in the second innings on the third day of the first test in Melbourne. The duo added a crucial 115 runs to power the hosts from 27/4 to 142/5 to save Australia the blushes and silence the critics. At the end of the day, Hussey was on 79, edging towards a vital century, and James Pattinson on 3. They lead by 230 runs with 2 wickets in hand.
1st Test, Day 3: Australia 333 (Cowan 68, Ponting 62, Zaheer 4-77) and 179/8 (Ponting 60, Hussey 79*, Umesh Yadav 4-49) lead India 282 (Tendulkar 73, Dravid 68, Sehwag 67)

1st Test, Day 2: Sachin Tendulkar falls short of 100th ton, India 214/3 at stumps

Virender Sehwag raced to 67 from 83 balls - passing 8,000 Test runs in the process and surviving two lives - as India started their response to Australia's 333, but was removed just before the tea interval on day two of the second Test in Melbourne. Sachin Tendulkar, chasing his 100th international hundred, was bowled for 73 by paceman Peter Siddle with just three balls left for the day. Dravid who took 137 balls and three hours to pass his half-century is at the crease with night-watchman Ishant Sharma.
1st Test, Day 2: India 214/3 (Tendulkar 73, Dravid 68*, Sehwag 67) trail Australia 333 (Cowan 68, Ponting 62, Zaheer 4-77) by 119 runs

1st Test, Day 1: Australia lose late wickets against India, 277/6 at stumps

Australia lost 4 wickets after lunch on day one of the Boxing Day test match, but ended the day in a strong position at 277/6 with Haddin (21*) and Siddle (34*) at the crease. They stumbled from a comfortable position of 205-3, losing three wickets for just 18 balls in the process. Zaheer Khan removed Michael Clarke and Mike Hussey in successive balls as Australia slid from 205-3 to 214-6. India are bidding to win their first series in Australia in 64 years and currently hold the Border-Gavaskar trophy after winning the last two series at home.

Reported earlier :Australia went to lunch on 68 for two on the first morning of the Boxing Day test. After winning the toss and electing to bat, they lost David Warner (37) and Shaun Marsh (0) in successive overs to Umesh Yadav. Ricky Ponting (15*) and Ed Cowan (14*) steadied them before rain interrupted the match just minutes before lunch break.

India XI: Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, VVS Laxman, MS Dhoni (capt, wk), R Ashwin, Zaheer Khan, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav

1st Test, Day 1: Australia 277/6 in 89 overs (Cowan 68, Ponting 62, Yadav 3-96) vs India

Hailstones lash Melbourne, rain may play spoilsport on opening day of Boxing Day Test

The four-Test series between India and Australia promises to be a cracker, and for the first test in the series, both teams are entering with a clean bill of health. Australia will have Shaun Marsh at No.3 following an exhaustive recovery from a back strain, while the Indian team is confident that senior fast bowlers Zaheer Khan and Ishant Sharma have overcome ankle ailments. Zaheer is coming back from ankle surgery while Sharma opted against a similar operation. Ishant hasn’t played since the drawn third Test against the West Indies in Mumbai four weeks ago while Zaheer hasn’t figured since breaking down in the 196-run first Test loss to England at Lord’s.

A crowd of 80,000 is expected for the first day inspite of the rain which threatens to wash out a large part of the day. The local police have warned the spectators to behave or else face eviction, arrest and on-the-spot fines. The test is scheduled to start at 10.30am. Australia have made three changes. Marsh returns from injury for Usman Khawaja, opener Phil Hughes has been dropped for Cowan, and swing bowler Ben Hilfenhaus has won a recall ahead of Mitchell Starc. The tourists are yet to name a side.

Australia in India, 2010 Test Series

India v Australia, 2nd Test, Bangalore, Oct 9-13

Bangalore Test, day five: India Beat Australia in Second Cricket Test, Win Series; IND-AUS:2-0(2)‎

First innings double century-maker Sachin Tendulkar scored the winning runs in India's seven-wicket victory Wednesday over Australia to take the two-test series 2-0. It was India's first victory at the M. Chinnaswamy stadium in 15 years.

Australia was bowled out for 223 earlier Wednesday, setting India a target of 207 to win. Tendulkar, who scored 214 in the first innings, took his series aggregate to 403 runs, at an amazing average of 134.5. Rahul Dravid, who shared in a 61-run unbroken fourth-wicket partnership with Tendulkar, remained unbeaten on 21. Playing his first test and promoted to bat at No. 3, Cheteswara Pujara set the pace of the innings with a 72 with seven boundaries.

With this win, India have consolidated their position at the top of the ICC Test Championship table, while Australia have dropped behind England to fifth position after racking up two losses - in Mohali last week and Bangalore on Wednesday - to Mahendra Dhoni's men.
IND v AUS, Bangalore Test, Day 5: India 495 and 207 for 3 (Pujara 72, Tendulkar 53*) beat Australia 478 and 223 (Ponting 72, Zaheer 3-41, Ojha 3-57) by 7 wickets
