Beauty of Test Cricket 

It’s been that kind of day at office for Team India.The fast bowlers hitting the 140kmph clicks on  consistent basis with a brisk line and length,and their spinners cobbing a web from a pitch that assisted them,it was an allround disciplined bowling attack displayed by Virat and co. The workload of 47 overs being shared by the two fast bowlers on a track that would provide least assistance to them showed the fitness level of the Indian seamers.Not to forget,the spin combo of Ashwin and Jadeja were exceptional ,with the former being utilised for 41 overs .Yet the wicket tally remains 6 for the day.That shows the temperament of Aussie batsmen,who never committed themselves on to the front foot for most of the times.They backed their defence and they were successful to the considerable extent.Yes there were some moments when Aussies had their heart in the mouth , with the odd ball keeping low and edges falling short of the slip cordon.But they were determined to bat the enitre day . They were never worried about the run rate as only 197 runs were scored ,but most importantly they batted with a high price tag for their wickets. Matt Renshaw would be a great asset to the Australian top order if he continues to play in the manner he is been playing.Overall,it was an absorbing day of test cricket which had a good contest between the bat and the ball. But with a lead of 48 runs ,Aussies edge out India.Indian bowlers need to attack right from the word go on day 3,and they have to bat exceptionally well to exert some sort of pressure on Aussies .
