Ind-Aus 4th Test. Day 1 and 2

Indian Team belongs to Australia now. They are comfortable playing here and are totally in control of the 4th test. So much that they are enjoying the conditions that Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh put up more than 100 runs for 8th wicket. Austrlian weakness in the bowling was wide exposed by Indians. Indians put up a fighting first innings total of 526, surpassing average 1st innings score at The Adelaide.

Earlier, Sachin's sublime innings came to an end after a fierce battle with the world's best bowler. I think it got to do with the blow he got on his knee from his own shot. But I loved the innings. It was one of those rare one's.

India got a glimpse of the fact that the bowling is not going to be easy here and getting 20 wickets to get a win would need something special from their bowlers. RP's injury can be a blow if he does not recover this morning. Bowling in the right areas and drying out the runs would be the key to frustrate Aussies and eventually get them out.
