With rain delaying resumption of play after the Tea break, India will be aiming to gain some momentum against Australia, on Day 2 of the ongoing fourth Test match, at The Gabba on Saturday. Openers Rohit Sharma (44) and Shubman Gill (7) lost their wickets to Nathan Lyon and Pat Cummins respectively. Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane, who are currently batting for India, will be hoping to anchor the innings. The hosts were bowled out for 369 before Lunch break, and will be hoping for their bowling department to perform against the visitors. The hosts carried on with their momentum from Day 1, with Tim Paine scoring a half-century. Paine slammed 50 runs off 104 balls before edging one to Rohit Sharma off Shardul Thakur. Test debutants T Natarajan and Washington Sundar added to their tally on Day 2, registering crucial wickets for India. Sundar took the wickets of Cameron Green and Nathan Lyon. Natarajan cleaned up Josh Hazlewood to end Australia’s innings. Natarajan, Sundar and Thakur all picked up three wickets apiece while Mohammed Siraj accounted for one wicket. The visitors will be aiming to dominate Australia’s bowling department on Day 2. (LIVE SCORECARD)
